Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and answers about BuyVM DirectAdmin Licenses.
Can I buy just a DirectAdmin License?
No. Reselling DirectAdmin licenses (for external use) is not allowed under DirectAdmin's Terms of Service.

If you wish to get a license for outside use, please visit the DirectAdmin website.
Is this a trial license or limited in any way?
Nope. The license is a full blown license with all the trimmings.

The only limitation is that the license can only be used on BuyVM services.
How many licenses can I get?
You can buy as many licenses as you have BuyVM services.

You can't have (nor would it help any) multiple licenses on a single service.
What are the system requirements for DirectAdmin?
We recommend you have at least a 1GB KVM Dedicated Server Slice to run DirectAdmin.

For larger website counts we highly recommend getting a 4GB or 8GB KVM Dedicated Server Slice for the added CPU cycles.
What operating systems are supported?
DirectAdmin supports CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and even FreeBSD.

Installing DirectAdmin on an already used server is unsupported. Please only try installing it on a freshly reinstalled KVM Dedicated Server Slice.
Can I import my cPanel backups?

DirectAdmin is able to easily import all "Full Account" cPanel backups.
