    I popped to my account to modify my site and found that it changed color. and shape. and everything else! I'm still trying to decide weather I like this change or not.
    As a programmer, I use the file manager a lot and the transition became difficult.
    Who is fond of the change from cPanel to DirectAdmin?
    (and has anyone found information about changing back?)

    I dislike cPanel as a company, but their software does a lot of things and after all these years, it's now pretty stable. DirectAdmin is really basic, but you lose some of the neat features that only a small number of people used. Because of its simplicity, I think it will cause new users less problems, and ultimately the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. I'll miss the DNS editor and the email tools, but really, with CloudFlare and Gmail (which are definitely better than cPanel in the first place), you don't need them.

    Good riddance cPanel.
