Plesk Panel 12

Many folks who need web hosting these days want the simplest method for managing servers. To many, it is expected that graphical-user-interfaces (GUIs) are provided along with hosting. The good news is that City & District offers the top-rated control panel in our plans.

Hosting control panels are web-based interfaces allowing administrators and/or users to manage various server services from the comfort of a web browser.

Plesk is the most popular web control panel for Windows servers.  Plesk comes in several different editions, each tailored for specific hosting use cases. The user interface is regarded as a bit cleaner than cPanel. In terms of features, Plesk and cPanel don’t differ much. Both are in use by big hosting companies (often in a branded form) and other many customers.

Empowers Customers with Self-Service Capabilities

Plesk comes with a user-friendly self- service interface that allows City & District’s customers to install applications on their own, without needing to enlist City & District’s technical support team. This not only enables City & District to make more efficient use of its manpower resources, but also provides customers with greater flexibility and agility to meet their business requirements.

Enables Market Differentiation with New Services

Odin is constantly adding to the APS catalog, allowing City & District to introduce new services and gain an edge over more established hosting providers rather than compete solely on cost. For example, City & District has introduced Web Presence Builder, an intuitive site-building tool for customers who are designing and building their own websites.

Simplifies Website Management

Plesk also uses an identical interface for both Windows and Linux, which reduces the learning curve for IT personnel. “We don’t have to work with two different applications with different hosting settings. If you know Plesk for Linux, you can manage Plesk for Windows and vice versa,

Offers a Win-Win Solution with Virtuozzo

By deploying Plesk on Virtuozzo, City & District offers resellers the option to start small and incorporate their branding into their websites without needing their own dedicated server. “It is a win-win situation,” .“We benefit in terms of getting more business from resellers who can start with a very low financial commitment. When they grow, we can easily upgrade them to a dedicated server or offer other services and technical support.”
