    I was wondering about some things. I stupidly thought that this was going to be easy to set up Plesk. I don't think I understand the Basics of the Plesk platform. My goal was to run one website from it with its own mail server. That has turned into quite a process that had great failure.

    Any way...

    What is Plesk?
    Is it for those who want to run several websites and be a shared hosting company themselves?
    I

    What is he whole concept of clients.....?

    Any way there is an minimal understanding in a flowchart way what Pleask does and is capable of doing. Can anyone explain it like that?

    Plesk is a control panel to manage a server and the sites on it. It's free if you only use it for one site, but it's meant for a shared hosting setup (not free).

    The admin creates several clients (persons with a separate login to manage their sites) and a client can have multiple domains.

    OK, What does client N stand for? And How do you set up the DNS for these sites?

    Hello,

    There is one thig that you must know:
    Plesk has 3 types of accounts built in its architecture:

    Client account
    Domain account
    E-mail account

    The Client account is basically the reseller account (can have multiple domain accounts under it)

    The domain account is a type of account that will basically store the customer's website

    The e-mail account is the type of account that e-mail users can connect to and set different types of setup for their e-mail accounts...

    The Server option on the left setups global parameters/applications/options...
    So for example to setup the DNS template for all domains to be created go to Server-> DNS and setup the default DNS options. (notice that here we setup variables, not the actual values)

    When a domain gets created it will follow that template and create all the DNS entries automatically for that domain...

    I hope this clear a little bit more of the Plesk's world...

    Welcome,


    Regards,
    Filipe Miranda

    N stands for an unlimited amount of clients. So you've got client 1, 2, 3, 4, ...., N (for example client 58).
