In today’s episode, we welcome Lucas Radke from Plesk to give us a tour of Plesk and all the services they provide. Plesk can be used by many different target audiences, starting from single end users of WordPress right up to big cloud services like DigitalOcean.

We discuss many interesting aspects of managing WordPress servers, including security, caching, managing multiple WordPress installations and their updates, backups, staging as well as Plesk tools for SEO.

Plesk has been making a big effort in the WordPress space in recent years and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the various services they offer and the situations which would warrant using them.

While many people default to hosted management solutions, they sometimes ignore the fact that having a DigitalOcean or Vultr VPS with a panel like Plesk can be more than enough for their WordPress hosting needs and save a ton of money in the long run. As we discuss with Lucas, one needs to carefully analyze their needs before selecting a hosting solution.
