The Plesk is all set-to keep on making the platform more usable and easy for the non-technical clients and earn it the favor of the non-technical clients as well. It has already started tangible efforts in the same directions. One of the major things apart from the simple interface is better availability of knowledgebase and relevant resources so as to educate the new users about the various feature and capabilities of Plesk.

- The limited features of Plesk were one of the reasons that prevented it to enjoy the popularity among the uses o the Plesk has certainly changed the things for the better.
Can work with Gitman
The Plesk now comes with the capable extension to integrate Gitman that is getting highly popular among the net users. The vital thing to be noticed here is that right now there are a very few web panels that support Github and being a branded panel the Plesk can reap really good benefits if it supports Github.
The ever-increasing community of GitHub can get attracted to the Plesk that can increase its clients base
When someone buys web hosting packages the major thing that concerns them is the ease of managing ther hosting panel. When it comes to the control panels the users generally rely on the reputed names produced by the good brands and offering user friendly features. While Plesk and cPanel are counted as the 2 major control panels, the Plesk is generally less preferred by the clients.

However, the advanced users who wish to extend their capabilities generally find it easier to work on cpanel due to its favourable ecosystem.
However, the good new is that the Plesk has introduced some key changes that male the platform appealing for both basic as well as advanced users with varying technical knowledge and expectations.
