As official launch partners of Plesk Onyx 17.8, we’re pleased to report that as of today, all new Reseller Hosting accounts are being created with the latest version of the software. Plesk Onyx 17.8 provides a range of improvements to the control panel; you can read a full list of the changes here.
For existing users of our Reseller Hosting plan, your version of Plesk will remain the same until you let us know you’d like to upgrade. This is considered a major release so even containers running Plesk 17.5 with auto update enabled will not update without manual action. With any new release we always recommend caution. Ideally we’d recommend you wait at least 30 days from the launch of the new software before considering an upgrade. That way we can keep tabs on how the new software is performing and iron out any teething issues that haven’t come to light in our testing ahead of the official release.
As ever, if you decide to upgrade please do get in touch with us directly. An upgrade might not be as simple as clicking a button, and might require a migration of your container to a new system first. At any rate, we recommend you contact our support team so we can review your account before undertaking any major system changes.
