I heard that Nginx doesn't support htaccess file while 80% my websites are running with htaccess. My hosting provider is offering Plesk with cheap pricing, around $4 for a licence, I would take one but if I install Plesk on my host, how can I enable htaccess for all my sites?

Where can I configure this? fast and easy?

With Plesk you have Apache + Nginx. By default Apache will process the php and you will be able to use your .htaccess, Nginx is only configured as a reverse-proxy to handle static assets and make your website loading faster.
You can also switch to Nginx only, but this time you will not be able to use .htaccess files.

In case on Nginx you can use htaccess to nginx Plesk extension. It will convert apache htaccess rewrite rules to nginx rewrite rules automatically.

I think Apache + Nginx will not more better than running Nginx only, anyway it is a mixture of Apache and Nginx.
I am expecting to run Nginx independently because I read than Nginx is optimized and will not load tons of libraries like Apache so it is more faster.

You can also switch to Nginx only, but this time you will not be able to use .htaccess files.
Where to find these options in Plesk?
If I run Nginx only, there are issues or errors I should care?

Can you share full guide for this?
I would to test it for any WP sites when I have Plesk next days on my hosting.
