In terms of security Plesk often have to face many criticisms. The system is not that secure as the users share the same resources. They can access the files of other servers connected in the system. Accessing the root system and exploiting the resources is also possible in Plesk VPS hosting.
Plesk comes in two main versions for simplifying the over all management. The Linux and UNIX systems mainly implement the Plesk 7. It is easy to manage the web server in these systems through the Plesk software. It allows the restart of the system for enhancing the performance. The spam protection is much more efficient in Plesk7 to filter all emails supposed to contain spam.
The login in plesk is implemented in four levels:
The administrators are allowed access through special login level. This gives him the access to manage everything in the system. The master level login helps him to manage all the virtual servers together. The administrator can give certain specific rights for the user. The clients can login and create new accounts. Domain owner gets access for administrating his domain. This is extended to include only his domain. The users have the facility to maintain passwords and other settings on their own. The access to this is provided through the mail user login.
The reduced expense and the user friendliness have always made Plesk the best of the virtual private servers hosting systems. The administration of the web sites is no longer a head ache and the management task is more simplified.
