HostPresto are now offering DirectAdmin based virtual private servers to compliment our Plesk and cPanel range. Below we’ve created a range of solutions to suit all requirements. We also offer DirectAdmin based bespoke solutions so please get in touch if you don’t find what you’re looking for.
Both DirectAdmin and cPanel are fantastic website control panels and come with all of the features you could possibly need in order to manage your website effectively. Common reasons for people typically choosing DirectAdmin over the likes of cPanel and Plesk tends to be resource usage, price and ease of use.
DirectAdmin - Features Galore
DirectAdmin is considered the most lightweight out of all of the popular website control panels but that doesn’t mean that it cuts back on features. You can still do all of the things you can do with both cPanel and Plesk.
DirectAdmin Virtual Private Server Features
All our DirectAdmin Cloud Servers plans come with these great features!
High Specification Servers
All of our DirectAdmin cloud server solutions are hosted on our top of the range web servers. All housed in our London data centre.
Monthly or Annual Billing
We offer a choice of monthly or annual billing. Annual billing enjoys a 2 month discount. You’re free to change the billing terms of your package as you see fit.
Super Fast SSD Storage
All of our VPS plans come with super fast SSD drives to help your website or your clients websites perform at their optimum.
Scale as you Need
You can scale up (or down) all of our VPS hosting plans at any time. You will see upgrade options in your client area where you can upgrade to a higher plan or simply get in touch with us should you require a bespoke solution.
Monitoring as Standard
We offer server monitoring as standard across all of our range. This means we keep an eye on your server for you, even when you’re not around and if anything goes wrong we’ll fix it without you needing to alert us.
Our self-healing cloud architecture when coupled with our advanced server monitoring solutions means we can fix issues before they become issues, automatically. This is how we achieve our industry leading 99.9% average uptime.
DirectAdmin, one of the worlds leading control panels.
Here's what makes DirectAdmin one of the most popular control panels out there.
Lightweight: DirectAdmin is considered the most lightweight of all of the big three control panels (DirectAdmin, cPanel & Plesk). So if you’re just looking for something with basic features, DirectAdmin is for you.
Less Resources: DirectAdmin uses significantly less server resources than the likes of cPanel or Plesk. So if you’re conscious about the resource usage of your control panel, DirectAdmin is definitely worth a look at.
Lower License Costs: DirectAdmin is becoming more and more popular as a direct result of the license cost hikes by its competitors.

"We’ve recently decided to take out a DirectAdmin VPS primarily due to the costs associated with running cPanel and I must say we’re impressed. It’s as feature rich as cPanel for a fraction of the price."
"I was skeptical about choosing HostPresto at first given they’ve only recently started supporting DirectAdmin but I can assure you, the support staff know what they’re doing. They migrated all of my accounts for me in a matter of hours without issue."
"I’ve always been a fan of DirectAdmin but until now I’ve had to host elsewhere, despite being a fan of HostPresto! Now they’ve started to offer DirectAdmin I’ve had them migrate my site. All went smoothly, many thanks to the team!"
