What is DirectAdmin hosting?

DirectAdmin stands as a web-based hosting control panel that offers a more affordable alternative to popular control panels like cPanel. Its pricing structure makes it an attractive option for website owners who are looking for a cost-effective solution without compromising essential features and functionality. Despite its lower cost, DirectAdmin still offers a comprehensive feature set that covers essential website management functions. 

In addition to its affordability, DirectAdmin also stands out for its resource efficiency. It operates with fewer system resources, such as CPU and RAM, compared to other control panels. Faster loading times and a seamless user experience can positively impact visitor satisfaction and overall website performance, leading to increased user engagement and improved search engine rankings.

For website owners seeking a more budget-friendly hosting control panel, DirectAdmin offers an enticing alternative that doesn’t sacrifice on crucial features and functionality.

The Spire Network

Powerful Infrastructure

Our enterprise-grade hardware is geared for performance and reliability, utilising the latest AMD EPYC and Ryzen CPUs and 100% NVMe SSD storage.

We deliberately overspec every server we commission to ensure generous resource allocation and consistently high performance at all times.

Security Focused

In the modern world, security is paramount when considering technology and its uses.

Our fully-redundant network is located within a world-class European datacenter, and boasts industry-leading hardware and software level DDoS protection, firewall security and network and power failovers.

Fiercely Independent

Spire Hosting is a family-owned business based 100% in the UK. No conglomerates involved or clueless shareholders dictating terms!

Built for Sustainability

Our hardware is designed to be extremely energy-efficient, and is powered by 100% renewable energy (Hydroelectricity, if you're curious).

Furthermore, we carefully consider the impact of each of our day-to-day business operations, and offset our carbon footprint via regular tree planting.

Simply put, Web Hosting is a service that allows individuals or organizations to make their website accessible on the internet. A web hosting service provides space for your website’s files and databases, and allows users to access them. 

There is often confusion when it comes to the distinction between “domain names” and “web hosting”.

Think of your website as a house – you might consider Web Hosting to be the foundation, or the land on which it sits.

A domain name (or URL) is the address by which you visit the website – e.g. spirehosting.co.uk!

The sky really is the limit! Our shared hosting plans rely on CloudLinux, cPanel and Apache, which is the perfect backline for most websites including WordPress and many other CMS platforms.

However, if you’re looking for something a little more bespoke, we are able to offer custom VPS and hosting packages upon request. 

No! We like to take a “keep it simple” approach – One of our core aims is to demystify the world of web hosting!

The tools provided, including our built-in WordPress manager and site builder make administering your website a doddle, and our friendly, UK-based support team are always on hand to assist and offer advice if you need it.

We have specially designed a migration tool so that you can migrate your site over in just a few clicks. This migration suite can be found within your client area, or, alternatively you can submit a support ticket to our team and we will migrate it over for you whilst you wait!

Yes – Simply head to your client area, where you will be able to upgrade your account. Alternatively, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll be happy to advise you on the best options available to you.

We back up all sites a minimum of once daily. These daily backups are then retained for 14 days, with further weekly backups available for up to 30 days.

All backups are securely stored off-site, so in the unlikely event of failure, your data will be safe.

We pride ourselves on providing an excellent service. This is why if at any point you are unhappy with your service we’ll provide you with a full refund* – no questions asked!

*within the first 30 days of your subscription/plan
