If you enter[edit]

If you enter incorrect password for more than 3 - 4 times, the account gets locked for half hour to one hour. What I want to know is that is this facility given by PLESK Control Panel or is it dependent on the WebServer ? [ which is just controlled by the Plesk UI ] The Plesk software controls the timeout, not the server OS. However, here isn't the right place to discuss this. Try the SWsoft fora instead.

Plesk etymology?[edit]

I would like to know the possible meanings .. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:27, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Plesk on Russian means "splash" (swash; plash). They say wife of one of the Plesk architectors invented that name at night %)

The article on Plesk seems to be (indirectly) advertising the SWsoft company and its products. Please make changes and consider revising the article. Teckie 02:34, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

the article seems factual to me

//(Jason Gignac)

I agree. The second paragraph of the security section, in particular, with its use of opinion words (easily configured, diligent, 'typically in 3rd party components', etc) offers what sounds like an assurance that the problem has been resolved, instead of data that might lead an impartial observer to agree that its been resolved — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jasonpgignac (talkcontribs) 19:35, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Seems NPOV to me[edit]

It is a factual reperesentation of the Plesk product, with historical insight into the development of software technology in a remote region of the world. I have been a Plesk user for less than 1 week, and have no fiduciary link to Plesk or any competitor.


The article is factual and unbiased. Had there been / if there is a page for cPanel, it'd probably read similarly. I work for a company that resells Plesk, and not one word of it that I have read is untrue or undiscoverable by researching elsewhere via Google. In fact, although I am not the original author, I cannot think of any changes that will still convey a truthful description of Plesk. You write, "Please make changes," but then fail to offer ideas as to how to change it yourself. Remember this is a WIKI, and anyone can change anything at anytime.

The bit about programming remotely is somewhat off-topic, but the article looks fine. What's not NPOV about it? One-dimensional Tangent (Talk) 00:19, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

NOT NPOV, Bad Style[edit]

This article badly lacks standards.

  • An introductory sentence should read like "Plesk is the name of a computer program/software used in the internet industry"
  • NPOV: XXX is something by YYY clearly is advertisement for YYY (that it is by YYY does not contribute to the meaning of XXX)
  • NPOV: The text reads pretty much like copy and paste from sales literature (which normally doesn't present falsehoods (so is factual) but usually doesn't point out weaknesses, leaves much room for interpretation (how many thousands?, what exactly means 'manage'?, where is a link to the user's manual?) and thereby tends to support fallacies). NPOV is not the same as factual (or would anyone agree that "Sahara is one of the few places on earth where rain won't spoil holidays" is NPOV?)
  • Relevance: why is XXX worth to be distinguished from web hosting automation solutions in general.
  • Language/Style: The language used appears to address neither expert (no truly technical details are exposed) nor layperson (none of the technical terms is explained/paraphrased).
    • To your first two points, uses the same intro, so it seems fine to me.
    • Relevance: all the big 5 web control panels have wiki articles, Plesk is used a lot.
    • Language: Why would their be any technical details, this is an encyclopedia not a technical manual. (talk) 19:57, 4 February 2008 (UTC)


This article doesn't discuss Plesk's license. It seems like a glaring omission. I added the word 'commercial' in front of the words 'web hosting application' to make this clearer. After reading Plesk's license agreement on SWsoft's homepage I am confident that the word is appropriate.


I would say this is still a stub... should a stub template be added? Tim 06:25, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Only one Windows/Linux Based[edit]

Only one on the market? See ZPanel article.

SWsoft is Russian[edit]

"The company behind Plesk, SWsoft, operates principally from Herndon, Virginia."
As far as I know, SWsoft is based in Russia. --Daniel15 (Talk/Contribs) 09:15, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Its headquarters are in Herdon, VA. Its R&D is in Moscow and it has sales offices in Germany and Singapore. Missy Prissy 22:05, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion Contested[edit]

Hey there, I'd like a chance to rewrite this article. Please do not delete. TruckMonkey (talk) 21:29, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

I've combined the security and criticsms into one section. I removed the 'problems' with upgrading content because no specifics or references were given.TruckMonkey (talk) 22:02, 5 February 2008 (UTC)[edit]

I am very annoyed. Sometimes when I try to go on the website known as, the following message appears:

This is the Plesk™ default page If you see this page it means:

1) hosting for this domain is not configured or 2) there's no such domain registered in Plesk.

For more information please contact Administrator.

However, the administrator's email address is It seems to me as if Plesk are nothing but a group of cyber-surfers blocking interesting sites for no reason whatsoever. Will someone please tell me why this is? —Preceding unsigned comment added by George.millman (talkcontribs) 10:41, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Plesk is a piece of computer software, it's not a group of people. It sounds to me like the website you visited has not configured their Plesk software correctly. (talk) 20:13, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Competing software - Proprietary vs. Open source alternatives[edit]

There should be a classification of competing software into proprietary and open source (/ free). E.g of the latter is OpenPanel.

It might also be better to change the title to 'Alternative software' instead of 'Competing software —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:09, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Why would you add 'alternate software' to a page that has to do with Plesk itself? it is more likely to add alternate softwares into pages like 'web hosting' where you should give different alternative to the same solution. YifatAmichay (talk) 08:17, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
