I am about to order a Windows VPS. The hoster gives me a choice of two configurations:
Windows Server 2008 64bit Windows Server 2008 64bit with Parallels Plesk Panel
Now, a few years ago I had a Plesk based VPS and I never saw any use for it. I felt Plesk was just what Remote Desktop is only with an interface I don't know, slower, less comfortable and slowing down my server. I administered the server via RDP and it worked just fine.
Did I completely miss the point? What is the benefit? I read the Wikipedia entry but it seems it's just an online-tool for something I get via RDP, too?!
