Creating Domains

Domains are created for a particular client. Before creating a new domain you should make sure that there are available IP addresses in the client's IP pool.

NOTE

You must officially register a domain and Internet address before you create it in Plesk. You can do this using the Register option available within Plesk or through any of the domain name registration services.

To create a new domain, follow these steps:

  1. At the Client Home page, click the New Domain button. The Domain creation page will appear.

  2. In the Domain name field - enter a valid domain name (e.g. mycompany.com) that is unique to the system. If you enter a domain name that already exists, Plesk will ask you to change it. The Domain Name field also has a prompt for the WWW tag. The WWW checkbox, when checked, indicates that the WWW prefix can be used when addressing the domain as well as the domain name by itself. If the box is unchecked, then the domain can only be referenced by its name without the WWW prefix.

  3. Select a template to be applied from the drop-down list.

  4. Select the IP address to be used for hosting from the drop-down list.

  5. Check (or leave checked) the Proceed to hosting setup checkbox if you wish to set up hosting for the domain after it is created.

    NOTE

    If you are creating a domain by a template that allows physical hosting creation, you will proceed to the Physical Hosting Setup page for this domain. Otherwise, you will be taken to the Hosting Type Selection page.

  6. When you are satisfied that the information is complete and correct, click Update.

    Clicking Up will discard all changes you made and return you to the Client Home page.

Once a new domain is created, a corresponding new entry is added to the list of domains.

Note, that after you have configured hosting for the domain, you can use the corresponding icon in the list of domains to view the domain in a separate browser window.
