Adding and Removing IP Addresses - Plesk

To view the IP addresses you have at your disposal:

Go to Tools & Settings > IP Addresses (in the Tools & Resources group). Your IP addresses are listed.

  • The IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Interface columns show which IP addresses are on which network interfaces.
  • The Resellers column shows the number of user accounts who are assigned to a given IP address. To view the users by names, click the respective number in the Resellers column.
  • The Sites column shows a number of websites hosted on an IP address. To view the domain names of these websites, click the respective number in the Sites column.
  • To update the list of IP addresses and their status, click Reread IP.

To add a new IP address to the server:

  1. Go to Tools & Utilities > IP Addresses (in the Resources group), and click Add IP Address.
  2. Select the network interface for the new IP from the Interface menu. All network cards installed on your server are shown in this menu.
  3. Enter the IP address and subnet mask in the corresponding box (e.g.123.123.123.123/16).
  4. Select the type of the new IP address, shared or exclusive.
  5. From the drop-down box, select the SSL certificate for the new IP address. You can select the following certificates:
    • Default certificate - the certificate that comes with the Parallels Plesk Panel distribution package. However, this certificate is not recognized by web browsers as it is not signed by a Certificate Authority (a warning message appears). The default certificate is used to provide access to the control panel via the https protocol (https://server-name-or-IP-address:8443/).
    • Other certificates - the certificates (self-signed or signed by a Certificate Authority) that you added to the repository of SSL certificates (about adding certificates see the section Securing Sites with SSL encryption).
  6. If your server is running Windows operating system, select the FTP over SSL checkbox if you want to enable the ability to use secure FTP connection (FTP over SSL) for the domain on an exclusive IP address.
  7. Click OK.
