Currently we host a site constructor tool with a dedicated panel and we would like to add email hosting using PPA services.
We have already installed the system and customized the PPA panel which will be accessed by our panel.
We would like to know if it is possible to use Single Sign-On (SSO) access on some manner (with PPA API or other module), so our customers don't need to enter with user and password again to administrate their e-mail accounts.
I indicated that I've basically been using my webhosting company as "file storage".
1) I create all my files in .html using notepad
2) My files are limited to .html, .jpg, .gif, (and a couple of .js and .css) files.
3) My domain is not connected with my webhost; I use the nameserver zoneedit.com and I use URL forwarding and mask/cloak the domain the address bar (using multiple domains) as follows:
domain1.com --> forwards to [url]
domain2.com --> forwards to [url]
domain3.com --> forwards to [url]
4) For uploading files, I go to ftp://123.456.78 and drop/drag/copy/paste files into the window using my browser
5) I'm able to password protect the subdirectories as I choose.
I called my webhost, Hostik, and told them that I was unable to do anything on my web console. I can't change a password, create a user, or even access my usage/bandwidth quotas.
They told me that I'm on an "old server" using the windows-based console (probably C-Panel / Control Panel) and they're in the process over the next three months of transfering everyone over to "Plesk".
So, they set me up with a new Plesk account, while keeping the old one in place, so that I could move/transfer my files to the Plesk account.
When I went to Plesk, I realized things are not the same:
1) In my Control Panel / C-Panel, I had a unique IP URL Address - [url]
2) In Plesk, it seems there's a set IP URL Address - [url] - that everyone shares.
3) I was told that in Plesk, many people use that IP URL address and that I'm supposed to place my files into the "httpdocs" folder.
Appearently, this is a system of shared hosting whereby many people have the same IP URL address (different from what I had before) and it recognizes each account by the login or something, so the "httpdocs" folder would identify my domain.
I was then told that in Plesk, I must have my domain affixed to the Plesk account.
In other words, I can no longer do what I was doing before, having my domain separated in another location and using URL forwarding from an outside nameserver.
So, my original question is what's the difference between Plesk vs. C-Panel/Control Panel?
Perhaps I answered most of it above.
Is it correct that I can't do things the way I've been doing them so far if that's the case?
It might be that Plesk is not for me and I may need to find a host that gives me my own unique IP URL Address. However, I was informed that not many companies are doing that as most are switching over to Plesk.
In addition, Hostik does not offer multiple domains.
In response to this thread, David recommended I try synhosting.com
synhosting.com has "Multiple Websites". I assume this means mulitiple domains. Correct?
What's my best option at this point?
1) Find a host that has C-Panel / Control Panel (if any there are)?
2) Use a service such as synhosting.com and move all my domains over to them?
3) If I do use synhosting.com, am I required to move my domains over to their nameservers?
4) I have my MX Mail records pointing to Fastmail.fm for my email virtual domains. Would I still be able to do this if my domain is dedicated to a webhost and opt not to use their email feature?
5) Should I get rid of this old-school thought of using my web host as "file storage" and stop this practice of using URL forwarding and cloaking?
I asked my current vps supplier about changing the certificate used to secure the plesk control panel as the default one causes certificate warnings. Their response was "dont worry about the warnings, the control panel is secure and trying to address the error can cause problems in plesk itself".
Is this correct?, I know the cp is still secure but customers arent going to think ssl certificate warnings are OK. I think their response was more of we cant help you so dont worry about it type response (a.k.a the brush off)
Is this an issue with plesk? vps is windows server 2k3
switched to ipower.com and not getting any help - really stuck as my customer wanted better spam filtering so I went to them on a recommendation and I do not know how to turn on and what is the best setting for spam filtering with their panel. Also using HORDE where I can set a filter using rules but it only works if I log on and hit apply filter so my customer still gets it in his in box -
I've been having a few issues with the control panel navigation is running slow even though I have heaps of resources available and free. The server is located locally and have no problems surfing websites attached to the same server.
When I login as admin, it can take 25 seconds to load into the first screen.

I have tried issuing a /etc/init.d/psa restart command and has made no difference.
I have a website works with Crystal Report, it worked with Windows server 2008 and Plesk Panel 10, now I upgrade my windows server to 2012 and plesk 11.5 and I gave this error: Server Error in '/' Application.....Please see the attached file (Error Image)
I check many things, for example I run the website on windows server 2012, just With IIS and it works fine, then I install the plesk 11.5 and take the error again.. now I sure 99% the error related to plesk....
I'm Unable to Login to Control Panel, this issue started few days back, in that time i'm using Plask v11.5, When i try to log in browser try to log in and few minutes after it showing Error 500, Application error, I try to run reconfigurator.exe to verify & fix the Plesk installation, everything updated fine but issues still exist today i decided to upgrade to v12 and i upgrade to V12, everything installed fine and but still login issues there.
This time whey i try to login, i'm not getting any error message, but after some time i got mail from the server "alarm level changed. Server health parameter "Services > Plesk CPU usage" changed its status from "green" to "red"."
Is it Normal that NAT / Internal IP Address shows up in customer panel ? It shows up in the detail page of Web Hosting Access, detail page of Mail Settings and on the detail page of Adding new databases.
DNS and on the section of Web Hosting Access in the front page of Websites and Domains are showing the correct public IP address
Attached is one of the screen that I'm talking about (Web Hosting Access)
I have been a solid cPanel / WHM user for the past 2 years, we have now since downsized our hosting requirements and also wanted to cut our panel costs and so we moved to PLESK 12 Web Edition.The server is on a trial license and has been working fine with no problems for the past 2 weeks. Today all of a sudden none of the websites are accessible, although I can ping all IP's on server and login via SSH.I cannot access any websites or hosting control panel, I have disabled IP tables as this was the cause of a problem last time.
Why this happened was there an update at around 5AM this morning which could have caused this?I have restarted the server, I can successfully ping / resolve address from SSH.
I purchased a Host license.Major customers in China. There is a facebook link in the panel.But China does not allow access facebook. This leads to a very slow access speed! Can I remove this link? If so, how to remove?
I can not log into to plesk right now. It's display message " Unable to read Control Panel configuration file: date_default_timezone_get() [function.date-default-timezone-get]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_ timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.We selected 'Asia/Krasnoyarsk' for '7.0/no DST' instead".

I am facing the following issue: Web Presence Builder icon is missing from Customer Control Panel.
I tried to apply the following solution from the knowledge base: [URL] ...., however I ended at step 2, because there is no "Sites published with Web Presence Builder" parameter in any of my Service Plans.
I am running plesk Panel 11.5.30 instead of 10.x. and step 1 tells me the parameter "Sites published with Web Presence Builder" equals 10.
