Frequently asked questions

What is Plesk hosting?

Plesk is the leading secure Drupal and WordPress website management platform that provides a simple yet performant and scalable platform developed for modern website hosting that’s capable of managing multiple servers from the easy-to-use Plesk control panel. Plesk web hosting providers, like typical blog hosts, offer services and resources to host and make a Plesk-based blog accessible online, including storing the website’s files, managing server configurations, and providing the necessary infrastructure for the blog to be viewed online.

DigitalOcean provides all the blog hosting resources your Plesk website needs, from virtual private servers, to strong security out of the box, and storage to ensure an excellent user experience.

What do you get when you use Plesk hosting platforms?

Blog hosting sites like DigitalOcean provide the underlying infrastructure—in addition to helpful services and support—to get your blog accessible on the internet. All hosting sites should offer you access to the Plesk control panel, security (at minimum DDoS protection and firewall support), reliable uptime, a free SSL certificate, and the means to scale your resources, whether manually or automatically, when traffic spikes on your Plesk blog.

What are the best Plesk hosting sites?

We may be biased, but DigitalOcean is among the best Plesk host sites because we offer top-tier reliability, lightning-quick hosting thanks to widely dispersed data centers, and web hosting security that takes your blog experience seriously. We’re a Plesk host provider that puts simplicity and utility first—so you can focus on writing great content, from the first blog post to the last.

What is the difference between shared servers and dedicated servers?

Hosting on a shared server is a type of hosting where multiple websites share the same server. Dedicated hosting provides a dedicated server with all of a physical server’s resources for just a single website, offering better, more reliable performance but at a higher cost. A blog host that offers both options gives you more flexibility to decide what you’ll pay and when. DigitalOcean is one such blog host!

Do I need technical knowledge to use a Plesk host?

DigitalOcean offers a simple, user-friendly interface and 1-Click installations for popular Content Management Systems (CMS) like WordPress or Magento making it accessible to users who don’t have lots of technical knowledge. Some technical understanding will be helpful for more advanced customization or troubleshooting, of course, even with a tool as simple as Plesk.

A blog hosting service should give you the tools you need to succeed, whether you’re new to web hosting or a professional website builder just looking for a Plesk platform.

Can I set up a Plesk blogging platform on DigitalOcean?

You can spin up a Droplet and install Plesk in a matter of minutes, getting your blog up and running quickly. Hosting providers like DigitalOcean support blog hosting and give Plesk users a lot of tools to run their blogs reliably and securely.

What is uptime and why is it important for blog hosting?

Uptime refers to the amount of time a website is operational and accessible to visitors. It’s crucial for maintaining a positive user experience and for your blog to achieve SEO rankings. A higher uptime percentage (like the 99.99% SLA offered for our Droplets) indicates a more reliable hosting provider. Choose blog hosting that promises high uptime.

How much traffic can my Plesk hosting handle?

The capacity of your hosting plans to handle traffic depends on the type of plan you choose and the resources allocated (CPU, RAM, bandwidth). If you expect high traffic, choose hosting plans that offer scalability or options to upgrade resources so you can reliably host Plesk CMS.

What security measures does DigitalOcean offer for blog hosting?

You get customizable cloud firewalls, malware scanning, DDoS protection, and a free SSL certificate via Let’s Encrypt among other offerings. We also recommend regularly backing up your blog so you can quickly recover it in case of catastrophe.

What is a domain name and how do I register one?

A domain name is the web address that visitors use to access your blog—like www.digitalocean.com. You can add a your own domain to your DigitalOcean account, too, so that your Plesk blog has the address you choose. Domain names are essential to blog hosting since they are the address of your blog. While we don’t offer a free domain or website builder, purchasing a domain name through a registrar or otherwise acquiring a free domain is easy to do.

What kind of customer support for blog hosting does DigitalOcean offer?

In addition to excellent free support for all users, we offer a range of Support plans for users with more specific needs or demands. Blog hosting customers benefit from the same support as other users.

What are the backup and recovery options provided by DigitalOcean?

Backups on DigitalOcean happen weekly, but you can use SnapShooter to capture a copy of your data as often as you need to. Learn more about Backups >
