Plesk is a popular multi-website management tool, which is accessed via a web GUI. It makes it easy to perform simple server tasks such as create mailboxes, FTP accounts, manage all aspects of DNS, manage files and databases, control permissions and create additional domains or subdomains.
The simplicity of the interface makes it simple for even non-technical users by the offer of one-click installation of popular applications such as WordPress.
Plesk covers both server and account security via both LDAP and Active Directory authentication out of the box. Additionally, Plesk offers Two Factor Authentication and has a built-in WAF. Fail2Ban is software that monitors logs and has the ability to ban IPs if it detects multiple authentication failures. One-click HTTPS, Let’s Encrypt SSLs and a CloudFlare backed product called ServerShield all work together to provide a robust suite of security tools for users.
Any control panel’s success is reliant not only on the security but also the ease of use. The continual iteration of Plesk’s UI means it is simple even for a beginner to use. Modern standards like full cross-browser support, fully responsive design, high res iconography and retina support makes using Plesk simple, intuitive; and visually a pleasure.
Plesk works with both Linux and Windows. Plesk is also a multilingual control panel, making it a suitable option for any business no matter what server configuration they have or where they are in the world.
Plesk offers mobile apps on iOS, Android and even Windows. All server management tasks are able to be completed wherever you are and whatever device you have access to. Any new features added to Plesk will also be supported on mobile.
Plesk is a great tool for starting out, but it does require extensive technical knowledge and support. At Hyve, we can provide 24/7 support and have qualified engineers who know the control panel inside out.
