As you might expect, Plesk hosting is any service that relies on the Plesk control panel. You can find Plesk on shared, VPS, or dedicated servers, all fulfilling the same basic needs: simplified and automated management of domains, files, email addresses, security, content platforms, and other applications associated with running a website.
Plesk is most commonly found included with Windows-based hosting environments, though it can be used alongside Linux operating systems, as well. Your hosting provider will set up your account with Plesk already installed, so all you need to do is log in and get to work.
Hosting providers largely choose which control panels to offer, especially at the shared server level. However, VPS and dedicated server customers are more likely to have a choice between Plesk, cPanel, DirectAdmin, ISPsystem, or other panels.
