CPanel isn’t the only one that exists that serves the purpose of a Web Hosting Control Panel, there are other control panels that exist and one of them that is Plesk. BigRock allows users to use cPanel or Plesk but it depends on the purchase that has been made. Plesk would be available for those who purchased Windows hosting and cPanel for those who purchased Linux hosting. For this tutorial, we shall be showcasing some of the basic How to’s with Plesk using BigRock.
How to Login to Plesk using BigRock
Note: Keep in mind that Plesk is only available if you purchased with Windows hosting plans so if you had Linux hosting you would not be able access Plesk.
Open a browser and go to the URL of the login page to your BigRock account and input the credentials.
After you managed to successfully login, the page should redirect you to the main page where you get to see the “List of Orders” which is the list of domains that you have purchased from BigRock. Choose the domain that you would like to access Plesk with.
Look for the “Windows Hosting” section from the newly loaded page and click on the “Manage Web Hosting” this is assuming of course you followed the note at the start.
A new window will pop out which if you wait for it to load is the Plesk main panel for your domain.
It’s not that difficult isn’t it? The process is fairly similar as to when you accessing cPanel with Linux Hosting.
Changing Plesk Password
Just like in cPanel, Plesk also have a username and password that will be required in some processes regarding Plesk. So whatever reason you may have for changing the password (maybe there’s a threat of unauthorized access or it could be simpler reasons) then below will be showcasing the steps on how to change the password with Plesk.
Just like the previous set of instructions in this article you need to open a browser. Go to the URL of the login page to your BigRock account and input the credentials.
After you managed to successfully login, the page should redirect you to the main page. From here, you will get to see the “List of Orders”. It is where the list of domains that you have purchased from BigRock is. Choose the domain associated to Plesk that you would like to change the password with.
Look for the “Windows Hosting” section from the newly loaded page and click on the “Admin Details”.
A pop-up will welcome you with a header that says “Change Password”. As you can see, you will be welcomed with a “New Password” label with a text-field below. This is where you should input the new password that you would like to use.
After you filled the textfield with your new password, don’t forget to remember it. Click on the “Change Password” button next to it.
There you have it you have successfully changed the password.
Plesk may not be as profound as cPanel though it shouldn’t be providing much difficulty for users of it.
