  • Applies to:
  • Plesk 11.0 for Windows

Release Notes

The functionality is available as of Plesk Panel 11.0.9 MU#39.

Manual Installation

To install SimpleDNS Plus manually as a Parallels Plesk Panel component, follow these steps: 
  1. Log in to the Parallels Plesk Panel server as Administrator using Remote Desktop.
  2. Stop the old Plesk DNS service. This is necessary for the Simple DNS Plus server that is being installed to properly register itself in the system.
  3. Obtain a SimpleDNS Plus server distribution package and install the application on the Parallels Plesk Panel server by running the package installer.
  4. Select the HTTP API option of the SimpleDNS Plus server, set the server address to 127.0.0.1, and specify the connection parameters (port and administrator password).
  5. Go to Tools & Settings > Server Components and click on the "Refresh" button. The SimpleDNS Plus server entry appears in the Plesk components list.
  6. In Parallels Plesk Panel, go to Tools & Settings Server Components > DNS Server > SimpleDNS Plus and specify the same connection parameters (port and password) as you did on the SimpleDNS Plus server. 

Important: When you have installed SimpleDNS Plus 5.2.x, make sure to enter the valid license key prior to using the server. Otherwise (with an outdated trial key or a key from another server), some operations cannot be performed and the server cannot work properly.

Manual Upgrade

To upgrade the SimpleDNS Plus component manually, follow these steps: 

  1. Log in to the Parallels Plesk Panel server as an administrator using Remote Desktop.
  2. Obtain a SimpleDNS Plus upgrade package and apply the upgrade to the existing installation.
  3. Go to Tools & Settings > Server Components and click on the "Refresh" button. The upgraded SimpleDNS Plus component entry appears in the Plesk components list.
