Plesk "Reloaded" for your Site's Daily Management

Plesk Reloaded is the newest release of the award-winning Plesk control panel software.

Plesk Reloaded is the newest release of the award-winning Plesk control panel software. Plesk Reloaded provides the power and flexibility required to stay in front of the competition. Since Plesk is fully managed by Avantex's tech support team, you can rest assured you have the best combination of tools and support in the business.

Formerly offered by SW-Soft, the company has now changed its name to Parallels and the software is now called Parallels-Plesk. At Avantex Hosting, we've been successfully using and offering Plesk to our clients since March 2001 and they are very happy with it. Additionally, Parallels constantly updates Plesk and continues to offer extended features like automated server control, server virtualization technology, third-party complementary software and expanded administration features that will not only save you a lot of time, but will also simplify your life at the same time.

Plesk Reloaded offers important new features:

Firewall Module The Plesk Firewall module allows you to configure a firewall on our servers by managing high-level rules. Create a rule by specifying that you want to allow (or block) network communications from a set of source IP addresses or networks to a set of destination IP addresses or networks using a set of TCP and/or UDP ports. The specified rules get translated into low-level firewall rules specific to your system. Additionally, commonly used network services (www, DNS etc) the Firewall module includes predefined service rules. Enabling and disabling access to these services is as easy as flipping a switch.

VPN Module The Virtual Private Networking module for Plesk Reloaded extends Plesk with the ability to establish secure communications over public networks. A Plesk host with the VPN module installed can participate in a secure peer-to-peer communication with another Plesk VPN host or with a UNIX or Windows machine without Plesk. The VPN module is based on the OpenVPN software.

File Server Module The File Server module enables Plesk administrators to share directories on a network directly from the control panel. Using Plesk File Server, you can share access to a directory on your server, grant access to this directory to specific users and assign read-only or write permissions for this directory. File Server uses the Microsoft SMB (Server Message Block) protocol to share resources on a Samba server for network users. For the Plesk File Server, the Samba server (version 2.2.x or 3.x) must be installed and properly configured.

SMTP Reject By default Plesk's Qmail will accept mail for any domain name that is properly listed in the rcpthosts/virthosts file. However, it doesn't verify that the username exists. As a result, when a message gets processed, a new MAILER DAEMON message is created. Spammers will take advantage of this to send their spam through a server (they put the intended recipient in the FROM box and a domain which behaves like this in the TO box). Plesk has pre-set Qmail to deny accepting the message altogether if the user does not exist on the server.

Counter-Strike GameServer One of the fast-growing segments of the Internet is Game Servers Hosting. Using the Plesk Module API, you can integrate virtually any game on your current Plesk server. As an example, Plesk Reloaded includes a fully integrated Counter-Strike Game Server. Just use our GUI to edit configuration files, set up, configure and monitor your favorite multiplayer online game.

Avantex deals mainly with the largest IT firms in the hosting industry.
