Plesk automatically generates predefined user roles, which you have the flexibility to modify or create custom roles. Here's a brief overview of the default roles:

  • Owner: This user enjoys full access to all settings and server management functions.

  • WebMaster: Users in this role can manage assigned subscriptions, including tasks such as creating new websites and configuring DNS records, mail, and FTP. However, WebMasters cannot create new Plesk users or manage roles.

  • Application User: A user with restricted access.

  • Accountant: This role offers the most limited access in Plesk. Accountants can only view details of assigned subscriptions and lack the ability to modify any settings.

  1. To craft your own custom role, simply click on the "Create User Role" button.
