Data loss is something that can happen at any time.

In DirectAdmin, Backups option enables clients to save the data without any problem.

Backup Management in DirectAdmin

DirectAdmin is a web-based hosting control panel designed to simplify website administration works. It has three access levels as AdminResellerUser. Also, the DirectAdmin control panel is accessed by a web browser at http://{domain}:2222/.

One of the main advantages of this hosting control panel is easy backup management. This is a feature that every smart Webhosting provider looks for.
