What Is A Plesk?

100% Uptime SLA, 24/7/365 Live Support & Fast Cloud Servers

Plesk control panel, like cPanel, is web hosting control panel software that allows you to manage your web hosting account easily through a web-based interface. On a single computer, Plesk lets you control thousands of virtual hosts. With Shared, VPS or even Dedicated Hosting, you can use the Plesk control panel. The Plesk control panel automates several activities to minimise operational costs and resources for web hosts while increasing profitability, effectiveness, and customer satisfaction at the same time. Most configurations for Plesk allow you to:

  • Upload and manage files
  • Create user accounts for FTP
  • Create and manage email accounts
  • Add new domains and subdomains
  • Create and manage databases such as MySQL and PostgreSQL
  • Backup and restore site files
  • View web log files
  • Manage DNS and other resources

There are four separate login levels with differing degrees of functionality for Plesk (Administrator, Client / Reseller, Domain Owner, and Mail User). It runs on the operating systems of both Linux and Windows. Parallels provides multiple tutorials for the Plesk Control Panel, so you can quickly learn more.

What is Plesk good for? 

Web sites are set up and configured easily using a fast and efficient web-based interface with menus and support files that are simple to use. The control panel at Plesk is:

  • Automated
  • Modular (easily install new features)
  • Secure
  • Internationalized (available in several different languages)
  • Cost-effective

The Plesk Control Panel is a very sophisticated control panel that should fulfil most, if not all, of your needs for web hosting. It does cost more than most other control panels, but providing an easy-to-use, efficient interface might be a great investment. On Parallels' own website, you can read about Plesk and explore the functionality, advantages and even check out a demo of Plesk.
