We are excited to announce that we have partnered with the industry leading Plesk control panel. Plesk is the user-friendly control panel included with each of our Windows Hosting solutions making it easy to access your files, databases, websites, email and more. This partnership will allow us to work more closely and collaborate with Plesk to continue to provide our customers with the very best hosting solutions possible.
Since its launch in 2003, Plesk has grown into one of the leading worldwide web hosting control panels. Easily manage your web hosting account with its web-based interface. Plesk is particularly adept at offering an intuitive manner to get websites up and running quickly.
The Plesk control panel is both a secure and international-friendly solution, being available in over 30-languages. Plesk also offers 1-click installs of many of the most popular blog, CMS and CRM software so its users don’t have to worry about install files for those solutions. The bottom line is that Plesk is a mature control panel that both expert users as well as users who have never run a website before can both appreciate.
Plesk is included with each of our Windows Shared, Reseller and VPS solutions. Both A2 Hosting and Plesk were represented at the recent CloudFest event giving users the opportunity to learn more about both organizations.
Both A2 Hosting and Plesk attended CloudFest taking place in Rust, Germany from March 10th-16th. CloudFest is a large scale series of conferences aimed at the web hosting, cloud and service provider industries. These conferences are focused on the philosophies of growth, connectivity and learning.
CloudFest attendees have direct access to the most recent technology, trends and innovation relating to online communication. As part of CloudFest’s goal to present the latest technical innovations, Plesk unveiled version 17.8 of their control panel!
There are a number of exciting new features and enhancements in Plesk v17.8. Many of these features involve support for the best development tools, improvements to their user interface and easier backup options. The newest Plesk features include:
- Improved UI speed when restoring backups stored in remote storage
- Adding an “Assistance and Troubleshooting” section for improved, easier support
- A number of updated icons and descriptions for specific Plesk components
- The ability to store backups remotely from both Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive
