Accessing/Managing your Plesk Windows Hosting package

Primarily, there are 3 methods by which you can manage your Plesk Windows Hosting package with Verve Logic:

Managing your Plesk Windows Hosting package through your Control Panel with Verve Logic (Anchor: logcp)

Note

This method is recommended if you yourself are managing your Plesk Windows Hosting package.

  1. Login to your Control Panel, search for the domain name for which you have purchased the Plesk Windows Hosting Order and go to the Order Details view. 1

  2. Click the Manage Web Hosting link to get automatically logged into your Plesk interface.

Managing your Plesk Windows Hosting package through an IP Address

Note

This method is typically recommended if you wish to delegate management of your Plesk Windows Hosting package to a Web Designer and have not modified your domain name's Name Servers to the ones recommended by Verve Logic or created the necessary DNS Records on your existing Name Servers.

Alternatively, you may only provide FTP access to your Web Designer by creating another FTP User for him/her. 2

Retrieving the IP Address and Login credentials of your Plesk Windows Hosting package

  1. Login to your Control Panel, search for the domain name for which you have purchased the Plesk Windows Hosting Order and go to the Order Details view. 3

  2. Click the Admin Details link.

  3. Your Plesk IP Address is visible next to the Address field, under Plesk Login Details.
