This template is based on AlmaLinux OS 8.x with a preinstalled Plesk control panel, based on the latest version of Plesk Obsidian.
The Plesk control panel lets you improve your web hosting service, increasing performance, speed and security.
The Plesk control panel offers a range of tools to help you manage your hosting and domains, as well as those of your customers.

The simple user interface is easy to use and doesn’t require any complex commands.
In addition to offering the option to install your favorite CMS, such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and more, the Plesk control panel makes managing security aspects easy.
Having a control panel for your services offers numerous benefits, but Plesk also enables you to resell your web hosting service, providing tools to help simplify and improve managing your customers.
