Plesk Helps 1&1 IONOS Launch WordPress Offering at WCEU

Plesk at WCEU 2019

Over 2,700 WordPress lovers attending this year’s WordCamp Europe (WCEU) event in Berlin have broken yet another attendance record. And since WordCamps continue to attract more people year after year, we get a great opportunity to contribute to the WordPress community! Here’s what went down this year, alongside our partners 1&1 IONOS.

Plesk Appeared with 1&1 IONOS for WP Pro Launch

WordCamps are the place to be if you’re after the hottest trends. Or direct feedback from WordPress users of all skill levels and profiles. Well, the voice of WordPress users is super important for us and one of the key drivers to further enhance our famous WordPress Toolkit. So we’re always happy to share our insights and help you build the perfect WordPress offering for your customers.

Plesk and 1&1 IONOS at WCEU launching new WordPress offering

Our partners 1&1 IONOS have already done just this. They introduced their brand-new WP Pro offering, powered by Plesk, to the public at our joint booth at WCEU. This new offer complements the 1&1 IONOS WordPress portfolio with a powerful package. Featuring the latest Cloud Server technology, dedicated resources for high-performance sites, Varnish Based Caching, Smart Updates and various Plesk tools. Thus, suiting the needs of professional WordPress users and agencies.

Launching Your Own WP Offering with Plesk

Now you can follow 1&1 IONOS and do the same! Launch your modern WordPress offering for web pros or agencies and build awareness for it within the community by sponsoring a WordCamp with us. Are you interested? Let us know by dropping an email to [email protected] and we’ll work together in order to make it happen!

Plesk’s Virtual Reality Surprise at WCEU

At this year’s WordCamp Europe, our booth had even more first time experiences. WordPress enthusiasts were able to feel the Plesk world at their very fingertips, through an innovative VR experience. By wearing the VR glasses and maneuvering the joysticks, our guests could step into an alternative universe. One where Elvis Plesky safely guides you down the futuristic pathways of server management.

Connecting with the WordPress Community – My First WP Install

Last but not least, we’re delighted to share with you a glimpse from the very heart of the community. Their first ever WordPress install memories. We’ll first take this opportunity to thank Josepha Haden, Marcel Bootsman, Monique Dubbelman, Dianne Wallace, Caspar Hübinger and Bas Brader. Because they graciously accepted our invite to sit down in front of the camera and let their memories flow.

Now, let’s close this review by reminding everyone that next year’s WordCamp will happen  in Portugal, between June 4-6, 2020. So see you (and hopefully even more Plesk partners) there in Porto. We can’t wait!

What a journey! But we couldn’t have achieved so much without the engagement and support of our customers and partners. You drive us to develop better products, service and solutions. So let us take a moment to thank you for being great, and present Plesk’s top wins of the year.

1. New Plesk Onyx 17.8 Release

We took your feedback and gave Plesk Onyx a huge update in March. Thus, better aligning our complete platform with the way web professionals work. We focused on five main areas: Site performance and speed, SEO tools integration, WordPress Toolkit efficiency and ease, tighter security and Cloud integration.

2. Major Industry Events

From Cloudfest in Germany to WordCamp Europe in Serbia, to J and Beyond in Germany and WordCamp US in Nashville. These were only a few of the events that allowed us to connect with new and old friends this year. Plus, learn and grow from the communities and the great minds we met. We even organized our own successful APAC Partner event in Singapore to better connect and exchange ideas with our partners.

3. SolusVM Joins the Group

London-based SolusVM from OnApp is a virtual server management system that offers Infrastructure-as-a-Service hosting. And is trusted by thousands of service providers. Plesk vowed to carry on its growth strategy and elevate it from a single server control panel to a future-proof cloud platform. In the same way, SolusVM boosts Plesk’s offering as it now becomes a complete solution, thanks to combined skills and resources.

4. New Plesk Editions

Providing even more solutions, to more users. Plesk WordPress Edition offers Managed WordPress Hosters a complete solution to manage, secure and grow their business. While Plesk Business and Collaboration Edition combines all the features of a corporate grade collaboration suite. The ready-to-use solution includes communication, performance and security tools too.

5. More Partner Success

This year, in our efforts to get closer to Partners and provide better solutions, we refocused our Partner Success Team. Thus, better serving our partners, no matter where or how big. Providing more resources and support, better initiatives and offers, dedicated partner events and much more. Want to become a partner too and reap our special benefits?

6. Plesk Extensions of the Year

We’re constantly searching for new ways to deliver better solutions to plug into your Plesk.

We’ve made leaps forward in providing add-ons for web development and apps, security and monitoring, backup, Cloud, DNS, and more.

Now that we’ve had a look back at the good stuff, we can continue flying forward. We hope to carry on exceeding expectations in 2019. So from all the Plesk Team: Thank you – and we’ll see you next year!
