Odin announces Plesk 12.5

Odin announced the availability of Plesk 12.5, which builds upon last year’s launch of Plesk 12 to provide an improved user interface and greater up-sell opportunities for providers including security features such as Server Shield Plus and MagicSpam.

The server administrator side boasts a completely redesigned look for mobile devices, making it easier for service providers to interact with customers and access self-repair tools.

Plesk continues to offer four different editions created to address the unique needs of web administrators, application developers, web professionals and hosting service providers.

The new interface allows users to easily install and manage their websites from a single platform. Enhanced migration tools allow for a simple transition from old to new versions and migration from cPanel.

The new version offers automated healing and recovery functionality is built into Plesk 12.5 so that many technical issues can self-repair without needing skilled support.

Through the built-in WordPress toolkit, Plesk 12.5 allows web professionals to mass-manage themes and plugins while simplifying the back-end administrative requirements.

Sidekick.pro, an extension, helps highlight new features without the user needing additional support. Self-serve tutorials take users step-by-step through tasks using text, voice and visual guides.

The latest version also has the ability to add on Server Shield Plus. This CloudFlare WAF (web application firewall) stops threats before they reach the server, works on the network edge, and doesn’t require the installation of any additional hardware or software. Additional upgraded security features come from new security packs, including MagicSpam which is included in both email security packs.
