What’s Going on in this Video

The Security Advisor Extension comes pre-installed with your Plesk control panel and is available right from the Home screen. You’ll get 3 tabs to manage: Domains, WordPress and System.

  1. First, you’ll see how Security Advisor helps you protect all of your website domains with Let’s Encrypt! SSL certificates. All this with a click of a button.
  2. We’ll show you how to switch your WordPress websites to HTTPS. But note that if WordPress was installed by means of WordPress Toolkit, they’re already switched to HTTPS.
  3. The System tab advises you to allow server protections – enable HTTPS/2 and protect Plesk control panel itself with a Let’s Encrypt! certificate. Also, installing third-party security extensions.

In the end, you’ll be protecting Plesk and all your website domain using the same helpful extension – the Security Advisor.

Security Advisor Key Features

  • One-click SSL
  • One-click HTTP/2
  • HTTPS for WordPress
  • Centralized security management

Nowadays, HTTPS is essential for any website. When you turn HTTP/2 on, you can improve your page-response-times by 10%. So make all your sites and apps secure with this free Plesk extension. Then have a look at our Plesk Security course below for more ways to up your security.
