As you can see, ISPmanager was compared with the highest Plesk 12 version – Web Host, unlimited in domains. Two basic conclusions that could be done based on this comparison:

  • In terms of features, ISPmanager Business is the best alternative to Plesk 12 Web Host (both are for shared hosting providers, both have resellers and CloudLinux). ISPmanager Business can build a cluster of nodes.
  • ISPmanager Lite is the alternative to Plesk 12 Web Pro and lower editions. ISPmanager Lite doesn’t have domain limits.
