Introducing the DirectAdmin Pro Pack

We include Pro Pack by default with retail Lite/Standard licenses, or licenses having support period extended.

This pack is not mandatory for shared or personal hosting, but will offer significant enhancements. We already have these features included:

  • Python/Java/Ruby/Perl/NodeJS support with the use of Nginx Unit
  • Per-User Redis manager
  • Additional features for Nginx (automatic CMS templates, WordPress+FastCGI cache support)
  • Ability to throttle resources per-user (CPU/RAM/IO etc.)
  • Admin SSL (SSL administration, ability to use cross-user wildcard certs, replace expired certs with Let's Encrypt)
  • More advanced Email Track&Trace, Email Summary
  • Web Terminal
  • GIT manager

The following are already available in alpha channel:

  • IMAP sync for Email synchronization
  • ClamAV scanner for filesystem scans

The following are in progress:

  • Advanced GUI for account migrations
  • WordPress manager

And we plan to introduce these, among much more, in the future:

  • Advanced backup manager, allowing user-level per-file (and per-database) restores from the backups
  • DNS synchronization with external providers such as CloudFlare

How to enable the features

After license upgrade, you just need to restart DirectAdmin to have the Pro Pack features displayed.

Then you could go to the admin panel and see if you notice the e-mail tracking feature, which would verify the Pro Pack features are there.
