As we’re all trying to recover from the cPanel sticker shock, DirectAdmin has been making improvements to their panel to help ease the transition for people.
The latest updates are to the new Evolution UI, adding an “icon grid” option to give users a more “cPanel” feel to things.
In their latest beta feed they’ve also integrated a cPanel importer so you just have to drop your cpmove files into a specific folder and it’s done.
The icons for sure need to be changed to something more fitting (they feel a little Windows 95’ish), but I think it’s a push in the right direction. No, the cPanel icons are trademarked to cPanel, using them will get you a C&D.
What else do you think DA needs to change to make a migration from cPanel to DirectAdmin better?
Remember, DA doesn’t have control over JetBackup or other 3rd party plugins.
