The Ultimate Control with Plesk Onyx

Media Temple is proud to partner with Plesk on our VPS hosting solutions. Over the last month, we’ve watched (with glee) our VPS customers upgrade their servers to Plesk Onyx. Here are some of the integral new features in Plesk Onyx to simplify life for web developers worldwide.

Multiple Servers, One Control Panel – Managing multiple sites normally involves juggling multiple interfaces and logins. Plesk Onyx, however, allows users to manage all their Plesk servers just from one single control panel. Setting it up is surprisingly simple, and the Multi Server Guide is a great place to start.

Easy Updating – Ease of use is not just a trendy catchphrase with Plesk. Plesk Onyx centralizes system and panel updates onto one page. The best part? A new auto install tool makes it effortless to update and install Plesk, third-party extensions, and system packages.

Ready To Code in Ruby and Node.js – It’s now easier than ever to implement popular frameworks and languages into any site. The Ruby extension allows web apps built on the Ruby (both Ruby on Rails and Sinatra) framework to be supported on any given virtual host. Enabling the Node.js extension means all Node.js applications (using any version of Node.js) can be added to a site and managed from the Plesk control panel. Finally: Easy web apps for all!

Docker Support Is Here – Every day, web developers rely on containerization technology to power their latest and greatest web projects. With Plesk Onyx, now they can deploy and manage Docker containers straight from the Plesk control panel. Even better – it now comes with on-demand access to redis, mongodb, and memcache.

Deploying From Git – Website deployment (almost) always has its hiccups. Fortunately, the new Git Manager extension is a powerful tool to push website content live from a Git repository or pull it from a remote one. Learn more about (and install) the Git plugin here.

DNSSEC – What’s the point of having a great site without the top-notch security to keep is safe? The DNSSEC extension protects the DNS data of all hosted domains and allows user to set policies for KSK and ZSK. Install it here.
