Overview

Your server comes with Plesk 11 and access to three different Plesk control panels. Each panel is used for specific purposes.

  • Control Panel - The Plesk Control Panel lets you handle day-to-day activities for your domains. Add domains, email addresses, FTP users, and databases.
  • Server Administration Panel - This panel allows you to set up customer access via "subscriptions." Default admin panel. Particularly useful for resellers.
  • Power User Panel - This panel allows you to check on your server resources, start and stop services, and perform other top-level server administration tasks.
