Could Parallels Plesk Panel help control your hosting?

09/28/2012 | Internet hosting |

Companies looking for dedicated servers on which to host websites will need a quality control panel in order to make the most of their site, with one option for this being Parallels Plesk Panel.

According to Parallels, this is the most widely used hosting control panel solution available, being used on over 250,000 Windows and Linux servers around the world. It noted it is highly popular with web hosting providers, website owners and developers due to its flexibility, scalability and powerful range of features.

The latest version of the software is Plesk Panel 11, which includes a wide range of new capabilities, such as a fast alternative for Apache called nginx. It supports all major operating systems including Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS, as well as Windows Server.

Parallels Plesk Panel 11 is also fully IPv6 compatible, which may be a key consideration for website owners, as the number of IPv4 addresses is rapidly running out. This month, it was revealed that the European system has hit its limit for IPv4 addresses, so it will be essential for web hosting providers in future to ensure their servers and tools are able to handle IPv6.

It also has easy-to-use tools to help build a high-quality website with as little hassle as possible, thanks to Parallels Web Presence Builder, which offers a graphical user interface with point-and-click and drag-and-drop capabilities and more than 100 preset templates.

In addition to this, Parallels Plesk Panel supports many virtualisation technologies, such as Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, as well as including robust security measures to ensure all areas of a website are protected from unauthorised access.

Craig Bartholomew, vice-president of panel products at Parallels, said that the company takes security "very, very seriously". In an open letter to individuals considering adopting Parallels Plesk Panel 11, he highly recommend people on earlier versions upgrade in order to take advantage of improved security features, such as better password encryption and frequent MicroUpdates to address newly-identified vulnerabilities.
