You will receive a welcome email when your Directadmin account is created.
Here is some of the essential information that you will find in the welcome email.
You will always log into the Directadmin main menu by pointing your web browser to a URL that looks like this:
For the majority of customers the Directadmin host at this time is called "sunshine", so you will access your Directadmin account by pointing your web browser to:
Your initial (nearly-empty) web site home page is accessible at these URLs, where DOMAIN is the initial domain assigned to your account and USERNAME is your username.
You may receive mail via POP or IMAP by connecting to mail.DOMAIN and you may send mail via SMTP by connecting to mail.DOMAIN. If you have difficulty sending mail, perhaps your high-speed connectivity provider filters out SMTP port 25 (which many do). In that case, enable authenticated SMTP. Then you may want to check to make sure your mail client is connecting to port 587, not port 25.
You may connect directly to sunshine.rahul.net (instead of mail.DOMAIN) for sending and receiving mail.
Use the ftp server: ftp.DOMAIN
Some ftp clients will also accept an ftp URL like this:
If you wish to use a custom domain, please see also the FAQ entry Domains in DirectAdmin.
