Auf der Linken Seite haben Sie eine Übersicht die wichtigsten Menüpunkte. In der Mitte können Sie dann jeweils die Settings and call up subitems. On the right side you will find further menu items and a small overview of the resources used by your Hosting accounts and depending on availability, other options.

Websites & Domains

Here you will find all important Settings options of your account. Here you can download more Domainsadd subdomains, or aliases. For each Domain you will get your own listing like in this example for the domain ihrefirma.de.

The domains can be set independently of each other. For example, you can assign a different php version than the other domain and test the effects on settings very well.

Under the domain name there are many symbols and icons for the individual sub-items. Informative is the specification of the storage path in this case "httpdocs" and the used IP address for this domain.

Below you will find the file manager with which you can store files directly on the Edit Webspace or upload and unpack Zip archives.

eMail and Database Settings can also be accessed directly here.

If you are with Node.js or Ruby you can also directly develop the respective Apps restart or edit. It makes sense to use these options on a v-Server where you can also activate additional ports.

Die einzelnen Punkte zeigen wie Ihnen in dieser Übersicht.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Webhosting access


In this menu item you can manage your access to your webhosting account. The system user of the operating system is specified here with which you can log in via FTP. Access via SSH is usually possible with a shared hosting Tariff not allowed. However, you can also set this in this menu item if you have the authorization to do so.


FTP access


Unlike the webhosting access you can use the FTP User define and also further FTP User create e.g. to allow separate FTP access for a specific domain directly into the directory of the domain.

With an FTP program you can then transfer your Data to the Webspace upload. With this Function there is the possibility to give another user access to parts of the account so that he independent can upload data.








Hosting settings

Hosting settings

This key function provides the most important settings for your account. You can change the hosting type in the hosting settings for each domain. You can fill the domain with your own content, redirect it to another domain, or simply choose no hosting, e.g. to use only the email function.

In the web hosting options you can choose a preferred domain. So either the domain itself yourcompany.com or the www.ihrefirma.de. The . Web server then redirects the domain independently with a secure 301 forwarding.

Here you also have the possibility to TLS support and select a suitable certificate if you have already set one up. With the permanent 301 redirection, you can then also use the web server here to automatically redirect all requests from http://ihrefirma.de to https://ihrefirma.de.

In the Web Script and Statistics settings you can activate various options such as SSI, CGI or FastCGI, as well as the php Select version and statistics software. The latest version is always recommended.

Git for Plesk

Git is a Software for distributed version management of files. Originally intended for version management of source code Git is also used today to store so-called flat structured data records directly as a file.

For developers a nice thing and easily set up in Plesk.


PHP settings

php settings

In Plesk you can define the PHP version for each domain. So it is possible to use e.g. php5.6 for a domain because the software is not yet available for php7 or you can always use the latest php7.1, or you can use php as FPM application from the Apache or from the Nginx.

This page displays the values defined by the provider. So the memory limit, the time a script runs, or receives data, the maximum file size that can be transferred. You can define some more settings like display_errors to avoid errors directly show ...to leave.

Plesk Ruby

Ruby is an object-oriented programming language. Plesk now offers the possibility to start your own applications.

Plesk Ruby Settings




With node.js small applications can be executed on the server side. Especially own web servers. In Plesk you can directly activate the apps, define the port and configure the application. With shared hosting accounts you usually cannot open separate ports, so that you can only access the defined port with a proxy redirection in nginx.

Settings for Apache & nginx

Apache nginx settings

In the Apache and nginx settings you can define different parameters. With our developer systems you can enter additional instructions here, which you must otherwise define in an .htaccess file.

You also have the option to use nginx directly without the redirection to Apache.

Sinnvolle Einstellungen sind z.B. das direkte Cachen von Seiten, oder die direkte Bearbeitung von statischen Daten durch den nginx bevor dieser die Anfragen an den Apache Webserver zur Bearbeitung weiterleitet.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]



Plesk offers many applications that you can use with a few Clicks install can. The system then downloads the latest version directly from the manufacturer and adapts it to the webhosting account. If you click on the small arrow next to the "Install" button, you can create a custom Installation and make a few entries that are to be set directly with. For example the database name, the password or the path in your webspace where the application should be installed. We recommend to install the application always in the root directory of the domain, so that you don't have to install redirections set up must. If you want to install multiple applications, simply create a subdomain and install the application there.

Plesk Apps

With Plesk Apps, there are many apps that do not make sense in the web hosting plan and require additional installations on the server. Therefore, although there are many apps available, many of them are too specialized for you to use. In the V-Server tariffs there is usually a Administrator access and further applications can easily be installed on the server.

In addition to the Plesk Apps, there are often other apps from Softacolous with hundreds of current apps like nextcloud or Contao. You see, with a good Web host you get everything your heart desires at no extra cost for each click.



file manager

File manager

With Plesk's own file manager, you can easily upload, edit or copy files to your web space. It is also possible to upload files or directories packed with Zip to the server and then unpack them. If you don't have an FTP program at hand, you can easily manage your files.

Web statistics

Web statistics

The web statistics give you a good overview of your access to your website with visitors, the browsers used, the pages accessed and the origin.

There are currently 2 different programs that generate your statistics. Awstats and Webalizer. Both evaluate the log files stored by the web server and generate graphics and tables for statistical analysis and display them in a html page.

Awstats Overview


eMail addresses

eMail addresses

The e-mail functions are very extensive. In this menu you can change the size of the IMAP/POP3 mailbox, change the number of messages you are allowed to send per hour (spam protection), change the password, or define an email forwarding. eMails are always stored in the mailbox itself, which of the email address corresponds. In this example, the mailbox is dipsy@ihrefirma.de. It can be accessed via the IMAP or POP3 protocol.

You can also define a forwarding, e.g. to forward your e-mails to another e-mail address. You can also define email aliases createso that you not only receive emails from dipsy@ihrefirma.de, but also from lala@ihrefirma.de.

Under the item Automatic Response you can define a so-called Auto-Responder. If someone sends you an email, you can send them an automatic reply, e.g. that you are currently on vacation and the email cannot be processed immediately.

The Spam and virus protection is always active. Here you can make a few settings if necessary and put other senders on a blacklist.

eMail settings

In the e-mail settings you can manage the e-mail function of your domain.

You can decide what to do with e-mails for which there is no e-mail address, e.g. someone sends you an e-mail and mistypes their name. Here you can then decide whether the eMails rejected or should be assigned to a specific e-mail mailbox. In this way you can also create a so-called catch-all *@ mailbox.

You can still use the Webmailer select. Available are Roundcube and Horde. The webmailer is always accessible via https://webmail.ihrefirma.de. You can also enter a certificate here if you have created one. Otherwise your webmailer is only accessible via http:// and does not offer a Protection. You should not call this unencrypted.

Under the menu item outgoing mail control you can define again how many emails can be sent per hour and whether the sending of emails may be sent by a script. The latter may be a problem if your Website hacked and the attacker can then simply send out mails.


SSL/TLS certificates

SSL certificates

At Administration menu you can easily Certificates manage, install a new one or extend it. Besides the free LetsEncrypt certificates, you can also use them for higher-value Certificates that offer a green address bar and display your company name or certify all subdomains of your domain. The name SSL is now obsolete and meant Secure Socket Layer. Since the abolition of SSL and the switch to TLS (Transport Layer Security) one speaks only of TLS certificates.

web application firewall


The web application firewall is an effective protection of your Internet site against attacks from the Internet. Certain attack patterns are recognized and the call is then executed by the Firewall blocked. You should always leave this protection on. For some older non-updated CMS there could be problems. In this case you can check the logs (Error Log) to see which firewall rule blocked access. You can unlock individual rules or in extreme cases of course the firewall switch off.

Password protected directories

Password protected directories

You can create individual directories with a Password protection and grant access to the contents only to certain users. With this function you can easily select the directory and also allow multiple users with different passwords define.

Copy Website

Copy Website

With this useful function you can easily make a copy of your website and place it under another subdomain or domain in your account. For example, if you have installed a WordPress in your account and you want to test what happens with some changes, you can copy the installation to a subdomain. Plesk will then copy the data to the directory of the subdomain accordingly. Optionally you can also copy the data to a FTP server upload.

It should also be noted that the Databases cannot be copied. You would simply have to create a new database, copy the content and adjust it in the configuration files.
