    frequently asked questions
    What happens if I need more than 100 domains?
    We move your hosting to a VPS server. This has no limits on domains and designed for scalability.
    What is DirectAdmin?
    DirectAdmin https://www.directadmin.com/ is an extremely flexible, stable and fast host panel running on Linux.
    How does DirectAdmin compare to cPanel?

    The short answer is that it compares very favorable in most aspects. DirectAdmin https://www.directadmin.com/ is an extremely flexible, stable and fast hosting panel running on Linux. It is not as well supported as cPanel, but then again nothing is… It is much better priced with an unlimited license option.

    What is the Linux Build and Web Server software that will be running my website?
    Linux OS 7 with Apache 2.x
    What does ttfb mean? (in website context)

    ttfb stands for “time to first byte”. In context to web site page load this is a very critical statistic used by search eninges to assist in index ratings. In simple terms, it is the number of seconds (or rather hopefully part thereoff) that it takes for a web server to start delivering the first byte of data to the client opening the web page. Lower is better!

    What version of PHP do you support.
    This is a moving target, we support PHP7.4 at the time of writing but our servers provide backward compatibility from 5.6 upwards.
    What mail software do you support?
    Exim Mail Transfer Agent with Dovecot IMAP/POP3 server. SpamAssassin for spam protection. RoundCube Web Interface.
    You do daily backups of all data. How do I restore this?
    You are able to backup and restore your own data in the DA panel. If you need data to be restored from an administrative level you will need to log a call for us to restore your data.
    What is MariaDB and what is the difference between this and MySQL?
    MariaDB is database software. MariaDB is an improved version of MySQL. There are many white papers that list the key differences, but in short MariaDB is faster, handles more connections and is open source.
