New features in the control panel for our shared hosting

Since many years back beebyte has an extended and great partnership with Plesk. Plesk is a market leader when it comes to creating control panels for web hosting, automation and managing of websites. 
Last couple of years, since signing a partnership with Automaticc, Plesk has focused greatly on managing websites built upon WordPress. For example Plesk early introduced the features or creating staging / cloned websites for WordPress, easy installation of SSL certificates via LetsEncrypt and a great tool for checking security compared to WordPress industrial standards and recommended settings.
Last week Plesk released their latest version, called Plesk Obsidian. As this article is being written we at beebyte currently are about to upgrade all our shared web servers to this release. If you are lucky you might already have it on one or more websites!
Below we list the most important news in Obsidian;


The most obvious change compared to earlier version is the new graphical user interface. The new interface is leaner and more light-weight compared to the previous one. Its also easier to navigate and you have more information up-front.
