Method #2: Access Plesk directly

To log in to Plesk directly, follow these steps:

  1. In your web browser, type the Plesk address for your web site. The address is https://www.example.com:8443, where example.com represents your domain name.
    Alternatively, you can use the address https://server.com:8443, where server.com represents your server name.

Logging out of Plesk

You should log out whenever you have finished using Plesk, because this notifies the web server that you have finished your session. If you do not log out, the server automatically closes your session after a set period of time. However, there is a small possibility that an attacker could exploit the open connection before this automatic logout occurs.

To log out of Plesk, follow these steps:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click your username:

    Plesk - Username

  2. Click Log out:

    Plesk - Username - Log out
