The Plesk’s main function is simplified administration of hosted
websites, mailboxes, and other network resources. As a reseller, you can
use leased hosting resources for your own needs as well as for selling
these resources to customers. For example, you can set up your corporate
website or mailbox on the Plesk server. To set up your own hosting
account, create a subscription in Plesk by clicking Subscriptions >
Add New Subscription. Then provide a domain name for this
subscription, specify access credentials, and choose a service plan and
add-ons if you need them. The subscription will appear in the list on
the Subscription page together with your customers’ subscriptions.
To start creating your website or to edit the subscription settings,
click the Manage in Customer Panel link next to the subscription’s
name. A list of operations available to you in the Customer Panel is
provided in the table below.
Your customers will have different levels of technical expertise and,
therefore, may have problems with managing certain settings of their
subscriptions. To assist your customers, you can log in to the Customer
Panel under a customer’s account and edit their websites and
subscription properties as if they were your own. To start managing a
customer’s subscription in the Customer Panel, find the subscription in
the list on the Subscriptions page and click Manage in Customer
Operations related to managing hosting accounts, such as managing
website content, adding and removing mailboxes, changing hosting
settings, and so on, are available to you in a separate interface called
the Customer Panel.
The sections of this chapter explain how to perform hosting operations
in the Customer Panel. The instructions are applicable to your own
subscriptions and subscriptions of your customers. This means that when
we say your website, your subscription, and so on, we imply both
your own and your customers’ websites or subscriptions. The table below
