Getting started with Plesk

Recommended Posts




Plesk is a commercial web hosting data center automation software developed for commercial hosting service providers. Plesk was designed to be compatible with Linux and Windows hosting services, to install and manage web hosting systems and applications on a single server. The control panel is designed to simplify the management and administration of the websites by automating various tasks on a single server.
Plesk's control panel allows a server administrator to set up new websites, reseller accounts, e-mail accounts, and DNS entries through a web-based interface. The administrator can create client and site templates, which predetermine resource-allocation parameters for the domains and/or clients.
