Plesk has recently introduced several new Plesk Toolkits that can significantly impact your customer experience. Here’s an overview of what’s fresh.
- WordPress Toolkit
- Joomla Toolkit
- SEO Toolkit
- Extensions Catalog
Let’s dive in!
1. WordPress Toolkit
This toolkit is truly remarkable. To start, it harnesses the world’s most popular CMS, WordPress. Plesk describes it as “the most comprehensive, secure, and flexible toolkit for WordPress.” What sets this CMS apart is its user-friendliness and simplicity, and the Plesk WordPress toolkit takes it even further.
The toolkit offers a one-click installer, making the deployment of your first WordPress site a breeze. After installation, you can stage and test your creative ideas in a sandbox tool that requires no plugins. This enables efficient content deployment to your live site. Moreover, it includes built-in security features to safeguard your website, including a security scanner.
But wait, there’s more! The toolkit simplifies processes like staging, cloning, syncing, updating, migrating, and other high-risk tasks with one click. If you manage multiple WordPress sites, you can even perform updates individually or across all your sites simultaneously.
If this sounds overly simplified, the toolkit also provides advanced features for high-level developers. You’ll have access to WP-CLI, maintenance mode, debug management, search engine index management, and more.
2. Joomla Toolkit
The Joomla toolkit is akin to the WordPress toolkit. It offers a user-friendly feature that lets you build, secure, and run all your Joomla instances. Just like the WordPress toolkit, there’s a one-click installer to simplify initialization and getting started. Built-in security functions and a security scanner come preconfigured, requiring no expertise in security. Finally, you can update and monitor all your Joomla sites from a single dashboard.
3. SEO Toolkit
When it comes to SEO, it can be a puzzling terrain for many developers. What needs to be done? What should be the focus? The SEO toolkit becomes your optimization guide.
It enhances your search engine ranking by testing, analyzing, and monitoring your website and your competitors. The included SEO Advisor generates a task list that provides insights into your website’s ranking. You can also run a Website Audit to calculate an Optimization Score based on standard SEO rules and practices. These tools are highly effective for assessing your SEO progress. The toolkit even offers a rank tracker to detect domain popularity in search engines, a great tool for tracking your progress. Last but not least, it includes a defense mechanism to monitor bots. The log file analyzer helps identify visiting bots with additional insights per bot.
Overall, the SEO toolkit is an extremely useful tool that excels at organizing, analyzing, and assessing your path to SEO success.
