Web development and maintenance can be the most annoying thing sometimes. Even for tedious small tasks, there are so many things that can go wrong and so many variables that you haven’t thought of, it’s just a huge hassle. Which brings me to Plesk.
Plesk is an ever-evolving platform that makes server management easy for anyone.
If you’re a web developer or a web designer, chances are, you probably heard of Plesk before. Afterall, Plesk is a leading control panel in the US that also captures roughly 75 to 80 percent of the European market. However, if you didn’t know about them, here is a little rundown of what Plesk does.
Plesk is a great developing tool for IT professionals.
The platform enables you to ease most of the daily tasks in website administration, even if you are managing a huge number of sites created with different apps and technologies. From building, securing, and running Plesk is your ally. You can build your website or application in a ready-to-code environment with an intuitive interface. The platform secures your applications and websites automatically and automates all server related tasks and components to run and scale your web applications and websites.
Basically, Plesk is the only tool you’ll ever need to build, secure and run websites and applications in the Cloud. For about 10$ a month you get 30 domains, WordPress toolkit, a developer pack, subscription management and account management.
Okay, that all sounds great, but how is that different from every other competitor out there, you might ask.
Well, the company recently launched the new Plesk Onyx, and everybody loves it. The new platform is all about speed and automation. Plesk Onyx isn’t just another sysadmin tool, it became a fully functional WebOps solution for web professionals.
