Did you guys here use both Directadmin and Plesk. What is your expertise on these hosting control panels? I want to know which one is better on performance, security, easy to configure/install, support , features and loading speed for websites aspects

Waiting for some honest comments!

I personally prefer Plesk over DA, it seems more innovative to me.

I can't understand which on Plesk is more innovative to me? can you elaborate this?
I read so much good feedback about this hosting panel and it is changing my mind to move to it but would hear more.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with DA, but do they have a comparable catalog of extensions like Plesk? Especially something like Plesk WordPress Toolkit?

I think this is definitely a user preference as it seems split and no consensus has been made. I will recommend DirectAdmin control panel software for their consistent high quality and brand stability. Nothing against plesk, but I feel like they have changed hands quite a few times and was very unstable for awhile.

Right, I agree with you.

Sure, Plesk are pretty weak when you run a high traffic site if compare with Directadmin. Directadmin will give better performance than Plesk in this case.

Great question. It comes down to preference. cPanel and Plesk are owned by the same company (Oakley Capital) so in the future I wouldn't even be surprised of these to being molded into a single panel. I like when people want to compare control panels and I always say it's like comparing cars. First, it's your budget, what can you afford? Secondly, it's your preference. What are you requirements? If both panels meet your requirements then it comes down to other preferences, such as style. Maybe you think Plesk looks better than cPanel or vise versa.

Lets look at things in a big picture. Plesk, cPanel and other control panel software are very popular choices and thousands of people around the world use both. So they are working options. For me, if I was to compare the two. I like cPanel better because it just works for me. Someone else, might like Plesk better because it just works for them. Both of the choices are great, and they will do exactly what you need and some.

Why do you think Directadmin is less secure than plesk? Directadmin has everything it need to be secure. It has an integrated anti-brute force system similar to the one cPanel has and it support CSF as well as imunify360.

Directadmin is less known but it's as easy as cPanel to work with. The new skin is awesome.

I've never used DirectAdmin so my choice is obviously cPanel!

Plesk is database driven, for that reason it will not much hogg the server resource and will provide a good performance as well. Also it run on mutiple platforms, but doesn't have an enhanced web interface options and managing part is not as handy as cPanel , Direct Admin,CWP etc.

DirectAdmin is good and they are improving their interface all these day s and they are popular after cPanel and Plesk.

If you only get to choose between DirectAdmin and Plesk, DirectAdmin is the right choice. It’s suited better for beginners and allows plenty of customization for advanced users. However, if you can choose between DirectAdmin, Plesk, and cPanel, the best choice of the three is cPanel.

I hear ever hosting is moving to DA (DirectAdmin) since CPanel prices got high to pay so DirectAdmin gets my vote although I never used it personally.
