Today we’re happy to announce that updating your (dv) Dedicated-Virtual Server 4.0 is easier than ever. Starting today, (dv) 4.0 customers can access new Parallels Plesk features with the push of a button and set their servers to apply future updates automatically. Read on to find out more.

The Parallels team has been releasing security updates and new features for their Plesk Control Panel at record pace.  Until now, accessing them required complicated terminal commands that  needed to be repeated for each release. With the Plesk Update button, you can safely and easily patch your Plesk installation with just a few clicks, setting it to automatically update in the future.

We recommend all (dv) 4.0 users take advantage of this opportunity to stay up-to-date by following these step-by-step instructions:
