    2 in decimal is 10 in binary

    10 looks a bit like IO

    Solus dot IO = Solus 2

    Confirmed :D

    Thats not how it works.
    Sure they will drop the legacy version in like 1 year after release.

    So either you keep it outdated and unsafe or you upgrade or develop your own.
    If you want to do it, start now.

    They got you by the balls.

    Obviously everyone's experience can be different, but after just leaving a shared hosting provider offering Plesk and cPanel I'll take cPanel any day of the week. Plesk was horrible to maintain, whereas cPanel just never had issues.

    We also had very negative experiences of Plesk's support service, but cPanel were incredible and went above and beyond every time

    For sure it made me a massive cPanel fanboy

  • Tr33nTr33n Member

    LTniger said: Plesk delivers. Always.

    Plesk is buggy as hell. cPanel, in comparison, works much better.
    Since cPanel now also belongs to Oakley Capital, of which Plesk is also part of it, it may well be that cPanel gets worser or Plesk becomes stable.

    Just a view point why Plesk sucks:

    • No service check. There is the watchdog extension, which does only work after fixing Plesk Bug #PPPM-8683. However, watchdog only checks if the service is running, but not if it works correctly. cPanel checks if the service does response.

    • Default configuration of the services is bad. You need to tweak every single service, even the mailserver.

    • No decent mail server configuration possible, as Plesk overwrites it over and over again. This is especially stupid because you can not customize the smtpd_recipient_restrictions option without developing your own methods to undo the automatic reset of Plesk.
      Also, you can not send mails over different IPs without breaking any standards like RDNS and SMTP hostnames.

    • Updates often broke systems in the past. Last critical issue i know was 16 days ago: EXTWPTOOLK-2519

    I could continue the list forever. Just try to install modsecurity over CLI and use the tortix rules (on CentOS 7, dunno if it works on other OS correctly). Right, it does not work on the first try, this is why i need to do shit like: https://pastebin.com/dfcGCU1Q

    The main goal of Plesk is to add as many features as possible. Whether they work reasonably does not matter.

    I hope SolusVM keeps being stable. The hope dies last.

    I only tried cPanel once and I can't understand why there's such a hype around it.
    Ugly design and the interface is too complex and not very user-friendly.
    I'd prefer Plesk or even a free Panel like Keyhelp at any time.

    I must admit that the old design wasn't nice, but paper lantern is definitely a much needed improvement

    For me the key thing is stability. The amount of times I had to run "plesk repair X Y" compared to having any issues at all with cPanel while working in my last job (I left a few days ago to go somewhere else) is just crazy.

    I can trust that cPanel won't go down randomly overnight, I can't say that about Plesk. But as always, YMMV of course

    Met Phil at CloudFest. The new version does seem to be better and aimed at competing against DO/Vultr.

    Phil/Solus seems happier under the new ownership. Onapp and Solusvm were competing products if Solus tried to add features or Onapp tried to make a lite version.

    This version is still 6 months away and will have some price hike. Migration should be possible for existing nodes in-place.

    All makes sense.

    Plesk bought it to turn a profit, and given they already raised prices on Plesk, Solus will get the same.

    The Onapp conflicts were pretty public. There was all this talk about adding OnApp's Federation systems to Solus but that never happened.

    A long time ago Phil had posted a roadmap plan for Solus and much of the feature set looked to be targeted right at OnApp customers. Its always been obvious that Solus was bought out to keep it out of OnApp's way, not for it to be properly developed.

    Since I can't edit this. I think I will take this back after realizing it's not completely logical. I would gladly pay a little bit more for Solus to be maintained better and new features added. Since I like Plesk, and gladly pay money for that product, I can't complain here. Heh, I pay for in license costs for Minecraft servers than I do VPS.

    I really haven't because I have a hard time trusting people, and I have little skills in that area so I'd be paying someone or a group, and then I wouldn't be able to sleep at night without a security audit.

    I don't think it will be too bad, Plesk's existing products aren't that bad compared to alternatives. I'm just glad things are actually moving more.

    Any news on this.. have given any idea on dates ... testing ... pricing ... anything other than a sexy holding page? GL

    I received following newsletter one week ago:

    Technology is radically changing many aspects of daily life, as the digitization of processes and tasks is transforming the way we manage virtual infrastructure, virtual machines and applications by leveraging them into the cloud. The customers of 2020 will be more informed and in charge of the experience they demand. They will expect hosting companies to anticipate their individual needs and customize the experience.

    At solus.io we see the hosting industry going through rapid change. Not only do we want to understand and anticipate this change, we want to impact it.
    Why solus.io?

    We will take the complexities out of virtual infrastructure management by offering blazing fast, on-demand VMs, a simple API and an easy-to-use self-service control panel for customers on top of a powerful administration control panel for service providers.

    You'll be amazed at how fast and easy your customers can build cloud servers. The setup of the solus.io platform is super quick and painless.

    Here are three reasons to consider solus.io:

    1. Simple and easy-to-use UI

    The controls of the popular cloud providers make you feel like you’re in a jet cockpit. There are way too many knobs, dials, switches, and levers to deal with. solus.io’s user interface is super simple, but feature packed. There's just enough links and buttons that give you access to the available functionality.
    solus.io Interface

    This doesn’t mean the platform lacks functionality. It does have everything it takes to deploy and manage virtual machines on the fly. It comes with an intuitive user interface to control all of your virtual servers. Create, resize, rebuild and snapshot with single clicks. An experience designed around the user instead of technology.

    1. Automation and Integration

    For automation and integration with 3rd party tools, solus.io exposes a simple but fully featured, modern REST API incorporating role based access - designed for cloud service providers, their resellers and end-customers.

    1. Features & Performance

    solus.io’s simplicity doesn’t come at the cost of performance. Open-source KVM, high-density OpenVZ with it’s premium features or even cloud computing? With its admin user interface you are able to keep control of all your servers.

    ..there’s more in the pipeline, we’ll keep you updated!

    Stay tuned!

    Agreed. I'm definitely crossing my fingers. I must say, after Plesk became it's own company, the product has improved significantly. I do have hope for SolusVM for the first time in a long time.

    OnApp were dragging their feet. Plesk aren't and Phill is still involved, so I think solusvm2 will actually happen this time.

    Not really - I think what you're missing is the key point "is anyone else likely interested in further discussion on the topic". The two threads you necro'd don't have that - if OP didn't get their answer, they would have followed up. With the next version of solusvm there is a very large number of providers and a decent number of end users who take interest in updates on this and it is very much still an ongoing topic.

    How much developing SolusVM alternative will cost? Less than $1 this time?

    Oh, sorry because Plesta (Solus)/ Softaculous (Virtualizor) will find this thread and buy them thus killing all potential startups. Haters will disagree.

    Always trying to be negative ^^.

  • These 2 idiots quoting my last sentence without trying to understand what it meant towards the previous reply.

    The thread was closed before people even have the chance to show interest. Now that's bias and power abuse. My replies were also follow-ups for the OP and "relevant".

    And what is this shit @alexvolk doing and replying in all my posts. I'm not even talking to you. Go find attention somewhere else. You are bringing other argument into this thread which has nothing to do with OP questions. Hijacking another thread just to pick a fight? You have serious mental problem. $1 to develop SolusVM doesn't make any sense at all. What's your point? No idea what to pick then he about stop making yourself look stupid eveywhere n take your PMS pills.
