Hello wlraider81,

For web server (in case you don't need ASP) you always go for linux CentOs or Ubuntu (Centos is your first choice).
We and our customers are not fans of Plesk we advise you to take look on www.webuzo.com (webuzo is an great stable and secure single user control panel developed and supported by Softaculous Ltd which again is leading company in the hosting software industry) and www.interworx.com ( InterWorx is the most secure Control Panel today and is not that expensive).

You will can install it on 512MB of RAM but we suggest over 1GB .

Hello,
you can install Plesk on Ubuntu/Debian or Centos. I prefer to use debian 8.5 Jessie but that's only my opinion.
You should go with a linux VPS because it will be just more expensive to use Windows.

To run Plesk properly, 2GB+ RAM is better.


Install Plesk 12.5 (stable)
Code:
sh <(curl http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer || wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer)
Install Plesk Onyx (pre-release)
Code:
sh <(curl http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer || wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer) --tier testing
Plesk Onyx is not released yet, so there is no support from Plesk, but I'm using it for few month now without any trouble, and it include all new features (Docker, NodeJs, Git, System updates, Nginx Only)

So installing Plesk Onyx is better because you didn't get any problems with it?

I read these on Plesk's official website to install Plesk for Linux/Unix

Download the autoinstaller from Plesk's website:

Code:
# wget http://autoinstall.plesk.com/plesk-installer
Add execute permissions to the autoinstaller:

Code:
# chmod +x plesk-installer
Launch the autoinstaller:

Code:
# ./plesk-installer
Why commands above are different from this command

Code:
sh <(curl http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer || wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer)


and this command for installing Plesk Onyx

Code:
sh <(curl http://autoinstall.plesk.com/plesk-installer || wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/plesk-installer) --all-versions
It is a custom installation

Does it have any differences with your command (one-click installation)?

Code:
sh <(curl http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer || wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer) --tier testing

What is pricing for webuzo? and can I have a license just for some website? what is about lifetime license?
If comparing with other hosting panels like cPanel, plesk, directadmin then how about webuzo?

Can I use these commands if I install plesk on Windows hosting? what windows version would you recommend to install plesk?
After install I want to host 1 to 3 sites with Plesk license, $5 / a site is not expensive but I want know how stable plesk is? and will it consume more server resource over hosting panels?

On a windows hosting, you can directly download the executable here : http://page.plesk.com/plesk-free-download-wp
Plesk is compatible with Windows Server 2008R2 and 2012/R2. But you should really try it on a linux server. If you don't need a complete ASP support, Windows will be slower, will need more resources and will cost more.

Plesk is really stable on linux (I can't talk about Windows, I have no reason to use it) and you have 10 domains for $5 - 30 domains for $10. The license limit the number of domains, that mean you can create several subdomains without paying more.

Plesk stability :

For webuzo, it's a cheap control panel but I will have to test it today to see how it look really. But for Interwox, their last new was posted in september 2013, I'm not even sure they are still alive :lol:.

Its reason why i am wanting to try it.

I have 2 options

- Buy plesk for 3 domains, but $5/ 10 domains, can i get plesk only for 3 domains with lower price?
- Buy plesk lifetime license but seem they don't offer this in their store.

And plesk are already built-in addons/software which I can enable them with just clicks like in other control panels?

I am seeing it has two packages Web Admin and Web Pro, what is the difference between them? can I get full functions and addons with Web Admin package?

InterWorx is pretty alive, actually we are in contact with one of the Interworx developers.

When you have an close to the perfection software posting everyday is useless.

Take for example cPanel, the most used commercial control panel still open to vulnerability and root exploits they need 6 to 12 months to fix random single bug :) and still they are posting everyday .

Webuzo panel might be cheap in price but that does not mean that is cheap on features , stability and security.
The differense between free and premium version (2.5$/mo) is that with premium version you can install over 350scripts with 1 click and generate backups through the panel. With both versions there are no limitation on the # of domains. Also you can go 1 time premium just to install newest versions of PHP and other scripts once your premium license expire you can still continue using it under free license but with latest script versions :).

Also there is 15days premium trial so you can use the trial time to upgrade everything

I would advise you to install Plesk at least because very soon comes a completely new version Plesk Onyx with revolutionary new features like Docker, Git and Multiserver support. Look at their forum news about this version. This is really breakthrough.
