Plesk is a web hosting control panel that is associated with the Windows and Linux operating systems. It offers pretty much the same features as cPanel. Plesk users can manage thousands of virtual hosts on a single server. Plesk control panel can be used with VPS, shared, and dedicated web hosting.

Some of the main features of the Plesk panel are as follows:
