User: Plesk CP Instructions

Online User Support for Plesk Control Panel
DOMAIN OWNER
Also referred to as owner/user
This section is where the hosting account (domain owner/user) can manage their website. Note that the domain owner and account owner can be the same person on a single user account (yourdomain.com); permissions are set for your domain's owner/user and other users for yourdomain.com must be set if you want another person using yourdomain.com.

Login
The yourdomain.com owner/user would have to have permissions to manage their own domain. AceShells& More must grant these permissions. By default, we give these permissions. If you want yourdomain.com to be forwarded to another URL, let us know this first (see next paragraph). The yourdomain.com owner/user will use their domain i.e. yourdomain.com in order to login with the password we granted you in the “manage their own domain section.” Note the account owner/user can mange everything about the owner/user from owners username and password.

If the domain user account is setup with either frame forwarding or standard forwarding, the only thing the owner/user can do is view preferences and modify the Bounce messages, Create and manage mail users, change the status from frame forwarding to standard forwarding or visa versa, manage MYSQL databases, and change password.

Control Panel login: https://www.yourdomain.com:8443
Type in your login: yourdomain.com - Your login is your URL address without the "www."
Type in your password: xxxxxxxx

Note that the SSL certificate will be Plesk. AceShells& More is using the Plesk Certificate for now. Don't worry about the questions your browser may ask. Just accept the ceritficate.

Preferences
Domain user can change response to bounce messages.

Report
Domain user can view their permissions and basic stats. The webalizer link is where they can view their web traffic stats

Mail
To create a mail user:

Type in username and click add.Check Mail box and give it a password, this will allow mail to be stored on the server for the user.

Mailbox quota, is for setting a limit for mail storage. Unlimited will max out with the domain limitation.Redirect, allows you to forward mail to another email address.

Mailgroup, creates a group mailing list using this created email address.Auto Responder, this allows you to create an auto response to mail sent to this email address.

DNS
As the domain owner and/or user you can only view the DNS settings but cannot change them. Only your hosting provider (AceShells.com) can makemodifications to it.

Hosting
Allow you to change your ftp login name and view your hosting settings.

Web users
Allows you to create web users i.e www.domain.com/~username if you grant someone else access to yourdomain.com.

Directories
Allows you to create password protected directories.

Certificate
If this is activated you can manage your SSL Certificate Note you would need a dedicated IP address to use this feature. Currently, we do not offer activation. However, you can use a third party who lets you use their secure site through a link or java applet they supply you with.

Anonymous FTP
This will allow you to have user login anonymously to your ftp server. This requires a dedicated IP address. Currently, we do not offer anonymous ftp for security reasons. Our servers are running smoothly with no breakdowns and that's the way we want to keep it.

Database
If permissions are set, the domain can setup MYSQL Databases for the domain. You must be knowledgeable in MYSQL in order for it to work. The servers support it as the software is installed. However, we cannot teach it to you. It could be possible for a third party to instruct you if you want to pay the $60 - $100 and hour fee.

Domain Users
The domain user can change the password to login. Please keep a record of your passwords as your passwords are hidden from us and we can't retrieve it for you. This is a security measure for domains on our servers. If you don't remember or you lost your record, you can easily change the password in your control panel.

Domain User FTP Upload
The following is a list of basic directories and what they are used for.

Anon_ftp: Where files are uploaded and downloaded from when anonymous ftp is activated. As said above; not activated on our servers.
Bin: System files for your site, you should not touch anything here.
Cert: This is where all your secure cert info is stored if activated and activation is allowed. As we said above, we do not activate this feature (SSL) on your hosting account. See "Certificate" above.
Cgi-bin: This is where you can place your cgi scripts.
Conf: This is for the server, nothing should be change here.
Error_docs: These are the html files you would change to make your own custom error files.
Httpdocs: where your html files should go.
Httpsdocs: where your secure html files should go.
Logs: This is where your site log files are left.
Pd: This is for the server, do not use
Web_users: This is where your webusers files will be, under their username.
