Plesk

by v17.8 | CentOS 7

Scalable, and versatile website and WordPress management platform.

Plesk is the ultimate WebOps server control panel for managing website and application hosting. Get access to a simple interface to set up new websites, DNS entries, and backups. Manage multiple servers in one streamlined control panel that makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Add extensions to incorporate essential development tools, including Docker, Uptime Robot, and Joomla. For developers and server administrators who prefer to use the command line, that is still an option with Plesk.

Get your own WebOps server control panel with the Plesk One-Click App.

With a Domain Name

If you deployed your Plesk One-Click App with a domain name and it is pointing to the Linode’s IP address that is hosting your Plesk instance, then you can enter the domain name in a browser window to access your Plesk site. Ensure you are using http://.

For more details on registering your domain, see the DNS Manager guide.

Once you have accessed your Plesk app via the browser, you can log in using the admin credentials you created when deploying your app. This will be root for the username and the root password for the server. Then, begin configuring your site.
