The new Plesk 10 hosting control panel – Our first impressions
As a loyal customer of Parallels for the past 7 years who has been using the Industry standard hosting control panel, Plesk for our web hosting automation needs, we are excited with the latest release of their control panel – Panel 10. In the past few weeks we have been evaluating Parallel’s new release of Plesk Panel version 10. It is pretty good with respect to managing user level permissions. From this version onwards, web hosters would need to maintain the recommended user hierarchy while creating users, E.g. Reseller > Client/Customer > Domain/Subscription. Domain Administrator feature has been deprecated and a role based user access level has been created, e.g. certain users can only configure email ids, some users cannot access ftp options and so on.
Another feature which has been added in the Linux version of Plesk is the option to create additional FTP users, which will benefit organisations which require additional ftp users with restricted access to their folders and a primary admin user to manage the individual ftp users from a single console.
New client dashboard with an enhanced menu system. The new menu is more user friendly and faster access with respect to earlier Plesk versions.
