Restricting Administrative Access

To enhance security by preventing unauthorized access, you can restrict administrative access to Plesk from specific IP addresses or networks.

To restrict administrative access to Plesk:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings > Restrict Administrative Access (under “Security”).
  2. Click Settings, select one of the following radio buttons and click OK:
    • Allowed, excluding the networks in the list to allow administrative access only from specific IP addresses or networks thus prohibiting all others not including in the list. It allows you, for example, to secure access from particular suspicious IP addresses.
    • Denied from the networks that are not listed to prohibit administrative access from specific IP addresses or networks. It allows you, for example, to deny all incoming connections except for ones coming from your own IP address.

      Note: If you select “Denied from the networks that are not listed”, add your own IP address to the list of networks. Otherwise, you will not be able to log in to Plesk with administrator's rights from your IP address.

  3. Click Add Network and specify:
    • Individual IP addresses (for example, 192.168.1.110)
    • Subnets of IP addresses (for example, 123.0.0.1/16 or 123.123.*.*)
  4. Click OK.
