The Plesk 11 Control Panel uses webspaces and subscriptions to manage access to your domains and various control panel features.


Webspace is an isolated piece of hosting resources which will run your websites and mail. Every webspace is designated for multi-domain hosting, but you will need more than one to isolate different applications and limit user access.

Your primary domain will automatically be created as its own webspace.

Each webspace has individual access credentials (linked to a system user account), which allows you to limit user access to websites over FTP and SSH. Also, each webspace is associated with an IP address and an SSL certificate. So, you might want to have several webspaces if you need your websites to be hosted on different IPs or if several websites should be properly secured with SSL.


Subscriptions are used with the Service Provider view and are used by resellers. For more about subscriptions, please click here.
