As a client (or an end user) on a Plesk server, you can remotely administer your account. With PSA, you no longer need to depend on your Internet provider's system administrator to manage tasks such as adding email accounts, changing domain parameters or obtaining an SSL certificate; you can do it all via PSA's graphical user interface. PSA is user-friendly. You do not have to know operating system commands or complex programming languages to take full advantage of the product; rather you only need to know how to navigate using a mouse and standard Internet browser. By accessing the PSA through your web browser, you can:

  • View and change your client record

  • Change your login password

  • Reconfigure your domain

  • Change your hosting settings

  • Create CSR's or self-signed certificates and/or install SSL certificates (IP-based hosting only)

  • Create email boxes, redirects, groups and autoresponders

  • Create web users

  • Create protected directories

  • View status statistics relating to your disk space and traffic

PSA warns you of any consequences before allowing you to execute a major change.
