Plesk: 1 month for free – only at Contabo

Surely some of you have clicked through our website before and compared our many offers of (virtual) servers. It quickly becomes apparent that we do not offer any preconfigured packages. Quite the contrary, we give you the freedom to choose what you really need out of our many upgrade options. In addition to a large selection of popular Linux operating systems and Windows Server, you can also add a panel, which simplifies the administration of your new server significantly.

In the past, we have advertised a very special promotion several times already: Exclusively at Contabo you can try the popular panel Plesk Onyx one month for free! This offer is available for all of our virtual private servers (VPS). You can add it to your order after clicking on "Customize & Order" during the order process and choose one out of the three editions (each provides a different range of functions).

Wait a minute, three different editions, which one suits my needs? Good question! 🙂 We cannot answer it for you though. However, we have published several blog posts about Plesk Onyx in the past in which we have explained the different editions and summarized many useful functions for you.

Now we have taken another step forward and created a dedicated landing page for Plesk Onyx, which contains links to the most important blog posts, giving you a good idea what Plesk Onyx is all about! You can find it linked on many subpages of our website, or you just visit the Plesk Onyx landingpage here!

Should all of this convince you to try Plesk Onyx now, you can do so one month for free, exclusively available for our VPS! Just select the suitable edition during the order process or click on it on the landing page (then it is preselected), order your desired VPS and you are good to go! 🙂

Should you have any questions or inquiries, we are available on 365 days per year. Just contact our customer support for assistance!
