When creating a plan, you are prompted to specify a number of service plan parameters. These parameters are grouped with a number of tabs:

Properties of a hosting plan and subscription are grouped as follows:

  • Resources

    These are hosting resources provided with a plan. Includes validity period, policy on overusing resources, system resources like disk space and traffic, and service resources such as websites, subdomains, mailboxes, databases, and so on. For example, the Domains resource sets the number of domains that a customer can register and manage in Plesk.

  • Permissions

    Includes provided services and privileges.

    Note: Some permissions prevent settings of the corresponding services from syncing.

  • Hosting Parameters

    Includes parameters of the provided hosting service.

  • PHP Settings

    Includes the customizable PHP settings. The PHP settings have a great importance as they affect the work of the major part of web applications. Learn more about how to adjust PHP settings for service plans in the section PHP Configuration.

  • Mail

    Includes parameters of the provided mail service.

  • DNS Specifies if the DNS zones of the subscription’s domains should be primary or secondary.

    Note: In case the DNS zone management privilege is provided, this parameter is not synced, and subscribers can set up this parameter on a per-domain basis.
