I use Plesk to manage multiple website projects at Andela. Using Plesk makes it easy to perform basic actions like creating emails ,uploading files ,pointing server to domain and more importantly the ability to perform all of the aforementioned actions remotely. I find it easy to use and edit large databases as against with alternative control panels.The fact there is a plan for every budget only makes Plesk more attractive from a financial perspective. The navigation is intuitive and menu icons are named appropriately ,making it easier to find your way around the homepage as a new user.Installing new extensions on Plesk is easier than on other server control panel solutions.

Our servers are always-on!It's very customizable, has a perfect first party support, the API is open to almost anything you can imagine, a big market for third party invoicing addons, the graphics are very nice and has a lot of plugins. It even has support for Docker now.

We have been using plesk in the control panel for more than 2 years, we have not had any problems yet. Everything works smoothly, quickly and comfortably. We've tried other hosting boards, but none is equal to this.
