Virtual Dedicated Server with Plesk Obsidian


Rent your Virtual Dedicated Server now with Plesk Obsidian - the successor of Plesk Onyx. The latest version of Plesk Obsidian makes it easy to configure your VD Server and manage and administer your websites. With just a few clicks you can configure the most important tasks and services via the user-friendly web interface. This allows you to quickly and easily take your website live and protect it with SSL certificates.

More robust, safer, faster

In the course of the new Plesk Obsidian version, Plesk has implemented some known feature requests. Under Linux based systems (CentOS 7, Ubuntu 16.04/18.04 and Debian 8/9) Plesk services are restarted automatically after a crash. In addition, the disk space required for individual record backups via remote storage has been reduced. This reduces resource consumption and effectively backs up more data. Good news for NGINX users: The PageSpeed module, which is used for performance optimization of websites, is now precompiled by default. This leads to shorter loading and execution times of the module.

WordPress Smart Updates

Some users use WordPress to manage their websites. As soon as new versions are available, it can happen that new updates of WordPress do not capture the dependencies of the website and paralyze it with error codes, display errors or bugs. To solve this problem, you can now add WordPress Smart Updates to your Plesk. This extension copies your website or subpages and updates them - isolated - to the latest WordPress version. At the end the copied website is checked for the above mentioned problems. Afterwards the admin can take the page live or not for the time being.

SEO Toolkit

The SEO Toolkit allows you to increase the traffic of your site and thus maximize its potential. With the "Vsibility Score" you can see how good the visibility and ranking of your website is on the most popular search engines. In addition, pointers are placed on non-optimized areas of a website, so that it becomes clear exactly where an intervention is useful. In addition, the keywords with which you are ranked are displayed.

Monitoring with Grafana

The predecessor HealthMonitoring was replaced by Grafana Charts and comes with useful features. Grafana is a visualization tool and can communicate with various databases as a source. In addition, users can create and edit new dashboards to customize the overview. Always have all resources, processes and services in view with Plesk Obsidian and Grafana!

Improved security

With Obsidian, your Plesk application is protected immediately after installation. Optional free plug-ins such as ModSecurity (Modsec) are pre-installed. With ModSecurity you can make extensive firewall configurations to protect your Plesk infrastructure. The special feature of this extension is the filtering of outgoing and incoming HTTP requests. This allows you to essentially control the flow of information and protect your website from malicious external influences.

Improved docker integration

Docker enables Plesk to isolate applications into separate containers by virtualizing an operating system based on the Docker open source software of the same name. These created containers can be transported as individual files, simplifying the delivery of your applications and the separation of your server resources. With Plesk Obsidian, the integration of auxiliary services such as Varnish, MongoDB, memcached and many more has been significantly improved. Plesk sets up the services and integrates them smoothly into your website.
