In this section, we will describe general Plesk server settings. These settings include a set of parameters related to statistics, and miscellaneous options such as server-wide permissions for customers. You can edit the general server settings on the Tools & Settings > Server Settings page.
You can configure the following statistics-related options:
Here you set the period for which the server will store web statistics and traffic statistics gathered by Webalizer or AWstats programs. By default, Plesk keeps the data for the last three months.
Here you select object types that Plesk will take into account when calculating disk space usage.
This option lets you define how Plesk will count the disk space used by each object: by its size or amount of used disk space. For information on how exactly Plesk calculates disk space usage, see the section About Disk Space Usage Calculation.
Here you select what types of traffic Plesk will count when calculating traffic: inbound, outbound, or both of them.
In addition to the settings related to statistics, you can edit the following settings:
The host name of the Plesk server.
We recommend that you select this option. Otherwise, users will be able to create fake subdomains and set up websites and email accounts which could be used for spamming or even phishing or identity theft.
When you add a subscription for a hosting customer, you specify a name of a system user associated with this subscription. On behalf of this user, the customer accesses the server over FTP or SSH, works with the file system, and so on.
By default, customers are allowed to change the names of system users associated with their subscriptions. Use this option to prevent customers from modifying these names.
Note: This option works only for customers who are not granted the Hosting Management permission. This permission enables customers to modify the name of the system user even if the option is selected.
The main domain of a subscription is created when you create the subscription. The name of the main domain is the same as the subscription name. By selecting this option, you can prohibit customers from modifying this name. Note that the Plesk administrator and additional administrators are able to modify names of customers' subscriptions, even if this option is selected. By default, this option is not selected.
Note: You can change this option programmatically. For details on how to do it, see CLI Reference.
