How to Manage Domains on a Dedicated Server

On our shared servers you are able to manage both the billing and server functions when you login to your customer account. If you own a dedicated server you will only be able to manage the billing functions of your account from the customer login. For additional information on the differences between the billing and control panel functions please see The Difference between Parallels Business Automation and Parallels Plesk Panel.

Connect to the Plesk Control Panel on your Dedicated Server to Manage Domains, Mail, FTP and other Server Settings
  • Launch Remote Desktop to connect to your dedicated server.
  • Double click the Plesk shortcut on your desktop. 
  • If you do not have a shortcut open a browser and navigate to https://localhost:8443. Notice that this uses the secured https protocol and the URL begins with https unlike regular URLs. 
  • If you do not want to remote into your server Plesk can also be accessed remotely using the full IP address of your server. https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8443.
You can also give your clients (named Customers in Plesk 11) access to the Control Panel to manage their account and domains. If you want to give them the ability to allocate resources to their customers, make them Resellers, not customers.
