Plesk Reviews

Using Plesk panel for ~8 years

Positive Review by adrianTNT

The panel is very reliable in my opinion, I never needed any other features than what it has now.
It has nice styling and a good user interface.
Nice monitoring tools like "Health Monitor" that will show you what is happening on the server and what might slow it down. You will see CPU and memory usage separated by services (MySQL, Apache, etc).
Price seems to be much lower than cPanel, at least at my host and this is for Dedicated server, for VPS it is usually even lower.


Steer clear

I've been a sysadmin on a parallels cloud server setup for around 8 months. I oversaw development of a store and let me tell you...

Parallels products are rigid and barely customizable. Highly recommend you look elsewhere for a good solution that you can customize.

Setup is also not straightforward at all, and licensing is stupidly complicated. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
