What is Plesk?

Plesk is a powerful, yet user-friendly hosting/domain manager. Plesk has a simple-to-use interface that makes editing your hosting details extremely easy.

What can Plesk do?

Through Plesk (included with all HelioHost hosting accounts), you can:

  • Create and manage e-mail addresses for your domain

  • Check e-mail using RoundCube -or- alter MX records for use with another e-mail service (such as Google Workspace - doing this will cause the Plesk built-in webmail clients to stop working)

  • Set-up e-mail clients for use with your e-mail addresses (through POP3/SMTP)

  • Update your HelioHost account information/password

  • Create and manage FTP accounts

  • Use the built-in Plesk file manager

  • Set-up FTP access using external FTP clients

  • View error logs for your site

  • Password protect directories on your site

  • Manage zone records (A, CNAME, TXT) for your domain(s)

  • Create MySQL/PostgreSQL databases/users (see MySQL Databases)

  • Edit SQL tables using phpMyAdmin/phpPgAdmin

  • Install software using Plesk Applications Installer

  • Manage Perl modules

How do I access my Plesk?

Plesk can be accessed by logging into the HelioHost website, and then pressing the Plesk button.
