How do I add a domain to Plesk?

Websavers Inc

When you first order your hosting plan, your primary domain is automatically set up in Plesk, however if you’ve registered additional domains, you will need to add these domains manually in Plesk.

You could add the domain as a standalone domain, or set it up as an alias such that it forwards to other domains.

After you have added the domain in Plesk, double check to ensure your domain registration points to your hosting with us, otherwise the steps you follow below will not actually make any noticeable change.

Add as a domain to set up hosting

Log in to Plesk then choose the “Add Domain” button.

If you don’t see such a button, you likely have our Helium or Carbon plan and require an upgrade to Titanium to host multiple websites under the same plan.

Once added in Plesk you can upload your website content using the Plesk File Manager, install WordPress (or other software) to get your website ready to go, or learn how to transfer your website. You will also want to add your mail accounts to Plesk, as you’d like them configured.
