Download the Open Preview Version of Parallels Plesk 12

The hosting market has changed. Gone are the days when “good, better, best” hosting plans attracted customers and grew your business. WordPress powers as many as 20% of sites worldwide; AWS has become dominant in the IaaS space; and Wix has 40 million sites and continues to grow. Parallels Plesk Panel 12 is a collection of Web Server Management tools that optimize the user experience and address the primary ways your customers use infrastructure for web hosting. Plesk 12 has been re-invented with offers to meet the challenges and opportunities in the new world of hosting.

Plesk 12 will address four key roles with four editions which will allow for tailored choices based on your customers’ overall needs. Plesk Web Admin Edition offers simple company website and domain management; Plesk Web App Edition offers powerful server management and custom application hosting; Plesk Web Pro Edition offers management of customers’ websites and domains including our new WordPress toolkit; and Plesk Web Host Edition offers secure WordPress and domain management tools for multi-tenant, install-anything hosting.

Download the open preview version of Plesk 12. This download introduces numerous enhancements in mail, including protection from outgoing spam, Dovecot mail server support with server-based email filtering, protection from email interception, and the ability to switch off mail service for individual domains. Plesk 12 presents security improvements for server services and customer websites, made possible with the help of two well-known third-party security applications: the Fail2Ban intrusion detection and IP banning system, and the ModSecurity Web Application Firewall (WAF). The new WordPress toolkit within Plesk 12 includes WordPress auto-detection, mass management, vulnerability scanning, and easy-to-use hardening tools. Stop flying blind. Let the WordPress toolkit be your weapon of choice to protect your network!

Download today.

Learn more about the WordPress toolkit, the new security core, and how solutions-based offers can help you reach new audiences and expand your channel. Join us on April 24 or May 7 for our Plesk 12 informational webinar, Parallels Plesk 12 Reinvented: Reach New Audiences and Expand your Channel.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service: There is No “One Size Fits All” Solution

The global IaaS market is predicted to grow 25% annually to $42.1 billion by 2016, but this strong overall growth curve should not be taken as an automatic guarantee of success for your business. Because no single cloud management platform can cover every use case, this creates an opportunity for service providers to differentiate and compete for customers, but it also means there will be difficult choices regarding virtualization technology preferences, underlying operating system support, API and application integration, deployment types, scalability and infrastructure requirements.

Fortunately, Parallels Automation enables you to deliver IaaS services across a wide range of cloud management platforms and virtualization technologies. Whether you want to host your own infrastructure on-site, or resell syndicated services from an upstream provider, Parallels Automation provides cloud enablement for a broad range of IaaS solutions running side by side, helping you to improve operational efficiency and to serve more customers regardless of their technology preferences. It’s really a future-proof platform.
