How to Create a Subscription and/or Domain on your Dedicated Server
When you create a domain or subscription and domain in Plesk, the file strucuture is created in the C:\Inetpub\vhosts\[domainname] folder. The website and application pool are created in IIS. The DNS records are created based on the DNS template. Plesk also creates the primary FTP user and applies the appropriate permissions to the new users created with the domain.
