    You will see predefined user roles that are created by Plesk automatically. You can modify them or opt to create your own. Here is a quick overview of what these predefined roles are:

  • Owner - User with full access to all settings and server management functions.
  • WebMaster - The user can manage most assigned subscriptions like creating new websites and configuring DNS records, mail, and FTP. This role does not allow the user to create a new Plesk user or manage roles.
  • Application User - User with limited access.
  • Accountant - User with the most limited access in Plesk. This role allows users to view details of the subscriptions only to which they were given access, but they are unable to modify any settings at all.
  1. To create your own, click on the Create User Role button.
