Not long ago, we have briefly spoken on Plesk Onyx vs cPanel. There are pros and cons of these control panels. However, I like Plesk Onyx a little more.
In Chinese, we call it 先入为主 means the first impression. Honestly speaking, it’s easier to navigate on Plesk as compare to its competitors.
Recent years, Plesk Onyx is stable and reliable, it is not bug-free, actually, I haven’t seen anything like that. When I have encountered an issue, at most times I’m able to get a solution or at least a workaround from the knowledge base.
I felt that the support team has done a very good job. People like us prefer looking into the KB than writing an email to the support team. Basically, we want to solve the issue fast.
Other things I want to mention, it is their extensions. I’m overwhelmed by the extensions available. They do not cost a lot and there are many for different purposes.
If you are a Plesk Onyx user, I can see a few of them are useful. Like the Kernelcare, imunify360 and anti-spam from SpamExperts and MagicSpam. There are a few free extensions are useful too like the watchdog, Pagespeed etc.
In Plesk Onyx, you can switch on HTTP/2 when your Nginx is enabled. HTTP/2 is faster and more secure if you are not aware. I also suggest you use PHP-FPM for better performance, the PHP website performs better in FPM.
