DirectAdmin Hosting Control Panel
If your web hosting plan uses DirectAdmin you are in the right place for help. Take a look at our extensive documentation to see how to perform many common tasks within the control panel.
If you are logging in as a User the login URL is
yourdomain.com:2222 (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name)
If you are logging in as an Admin (if you have a VPS), the login URL is either
server-ip-address:2222 or if you have an SSL certifificate for the server, it’s generally
host.yourdomain.com:2222 (replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name)
If you have a VPS (Virtual Private Server), you were provided with login credentials as the Admin of the server when you ordered your server. The Admin privileges give you full access to the server and all of the functions included.
Securely store your login credentials and do not share with anyone
