  • Plesk Web App Edition for Web App Developers, who build and deploy web applications. They want powerful server management tools for custom application development and deployment.

  • Plesk Web Pro Edition for Web Professionals, who designed, developed, and deployed their websites. They want a simple way to manage their customers' websites, including their growing use of WordPress as a CMS platform.

  • Plesk Web Host Edition for "Traditional" Web Hosters, who allow their customers to use their shared account in almost any configuration they want. They want secure WordPress and domain management tools to support their multi-tenant, "install anything" customers.
