    Well, it's definitely more simple. I use it on my VPS to manage my personal sites and it works fantastic. It's much cheaper than cPanel

    cPanel is quite robust, secure with regular updates.

    Depends.

    CPanel is much more featured and no. 1 choice. DA is robust but not so widely used.

    DirectAdmin is the fastest running control panel available. You can use it instead of cPanel.

    cPanel has more features than DirectAdmin, but due to the increase in pricing, many people are starting to use other panel software like DirectAdmin or Plesk.

    DirectAdmin has a much more simpler user interface in my opinion. cPanel is too overused.

    Lots of clients are choosing Plesk or DirectAdmin as a paid alternative. DirectAdmin is a sensible option due to lots of customizations available and Plesk Onyx is great with user interface. However, there are lots of free panels also to take into account, for example, Webmin/Virtualmin or VestaCP.
    Free panels are a great option for a side project.

    The main difference is cost. It will cost you less to get DirectAdmin license compare to cPanel.

    From the functionality point of view, cPanel offers more feature compare to DirectAdmin. Due to this DirectAdmin can be considered as lightweight control panel and it requires less server resources compare to cPanel.

    If you have low configurations server and you have skill, DirectAdmin is good choice but if you are going to use the server to host clients websites, cPanel is good choice. cPanel is more popular for end user and it has easy interface and widely used control panel.
