    Pros
    For me who manage small hosting services in VPS is a fantastic choice: it is fast, fast, at an affordable and reliable price.
    I really like that it is so easy to setup and that there is a great amount of information in the user forums and plesk help sections.
    I am hosting a website for my company and plesk it's perfect, much better than cPanel. Worked in past with it also on windows and does great job both on linux and windows server.
    Cons
    Pricey, lacking in features with terrible customer service.
    Unfortunately I am having in trouble for use it outside Google Platform.
    Not so fast in loading speed compared to cPanel. The dashboard can often be confusing with so many menus and options.

    For me the best

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Really really good in the end. I would make this choice again in the future.

    Pros

    For me who manage small hosting services in VPS is a fantastic choice: it is fast, fast, at an affordable and reliable price. He certainly loses in the competition with Cpanel but this is not necessarily a negative point. Finally UI and UX are really good.

    Cons

    It doesn't integrate well with Cloudflare and that's really a shame, the mailbox management isn't perfect and for anything you have to pay. And A lot. The subscription to a classic antivirus often costs as much as 3 times the subscription. Often these services are nothing more than adaptations of open source code.

    Good Alternative

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Pretty good, works well, solid for now. For basic use this is pretty good however if you want to start running a medium to large hosting company or if you have a lot of site this may start to add up

    Pros

    It does what it says and its foolproof. Pretty much anyone over the age of 13 could setup this software with a little bit of networking knowledge

    Cons

    I didnt like the fact that if you want to go above using basic functionality you would have to pay. Feels like a pay to win type of game :D

    My Prefered Hosting Control Panel

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    For me, it's the best in the market and the price is better than cPanel. I have many dedicated servers and I'm using a Plesk on all of them

    Pros

    Competitive Price WordPress Tools Ease of Use Customer Service

    Cons

    the migration tools need a lot of care and new development, especially when migrating from cPanel to Plesk. I have to pay for many important addons and I believe it should be part of Plesk features but not to pay extra for it.
