Secure and easy server management

I am very happy with Plesk as a web hosting management system. Its pricing is cheaper, features are great, now I do not have to worry about managing my secure server anymore.

Pros

Plesk is easy to set up, provides a feature-rich user interface for managing multiple websites. Supports Nginx, regular backup, and migration from popular web hosting management systems. The pricing for VPS with 10 domains starts at $11 per month which is an unbeatable price in the industry.

Cons

Plesk does not offer a single site license.

Reasons for Choosing Plesk

Cheaper and reliable server management with a beautiful user interface.

Reasons for Switching to Plesk

Plesk is cheaper and comes with all the needed features for web hosting server management.

Plesk Review

A great experience! If you are uncomfortable with performing updates, changes or maintenance via a command line. Plesk allows you to perform most of these tasks through a user interface. It's an ideal CRM for web hosting.

Pros

Mostly everything! Plesk is great platform for managing a large number of website for clients. You can create and customise your own subscription plans, limiting or extending resources per client. The software is intuitive and you have available the essential features for managing website hosting.

Cons

One missing feature that would be very useful. The ability to upgrade your databases to newer versions of MySQL (5.5 > Current). Plesk already provides the capabilty to upgrade the PHP versions per website. Having the feature to upgrade the databases would be an extremely useful addition.

Reasons for Choosing Plesk

We required more customisation and control.

Reasons for Switching to Plesk

We required a better control panel to manage numerous websites and clients.

Pricey, lacking in features with terrible customer service

Poor service, very expensive, wouldn't recommend.

Pros

It's reasonably easy to use, but not as many options as the price commands.

Cons

Expensive for what it is. Customer support is horrific. You buy through a reseller and all support has to go through them, massively increasing time for support. Features are lacking and the price is astronomical for how basic it is.

Reasons for Choosing Plesk

Price. Mistake - cPanel is more expensive but product and service are infinitely better.

Easy and complete management on servers

Plesk has helped me manage servers, VPS and dedicated servers easily and effectively. Much easier than others in the field.

Pros

Compared to other products, the server management is another world and even more so for people with little knowledge of terminal code.

Cons

Maybe comparing other products, the lack of some specific functions. But that does not hinder at all the good performance it has.
