On October 19, 2021, we have enabled single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
If you had already registered your account at Plesk 360 (formerly known as My Plesk) please use one for login. Otherwise please re-register it using the same email address as your existing Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account.

Let's Encrypt can not issue certificate for webmail only in Plesk if domain is hosted on another server: An SSL / TLS certificate could not be issued for example.com

    ok, so once you've done this — you just issue a certificate elsewhere and manually add it? because option 2 makes LetsEncrypt disappear as an option obviously ;)

    Hello @airplanenoise,

    This article is for situation when only webmail zone is hosted on the Plesk server. So to secure only webmail zone (for example, webmail.example.com), but not the main domain (example.com), the solution from this article should be applied. When you disable SSL/TLS Support option in Hosting Settings (resolution 2), Let's Encrypt is still available for securing webmail only:

     

    If you cannot issue an SSL for the main domain (for example, example.com, not webmail.example.com), you will need to search for another article as this one is not applicable here. 

    Let me know the detailed issue description so that I try to find the solution for you.

    thanks Yulia Plokhotnikova - yeah I can't issue the SSL for the main domain (example.com in your example) — cause it is hosted elsewhere. how can I secure webmail.example.com and other.example.com WITHOUT hosting example.com?

    Hello airplanenoise,

    Only webmail zone can be secured in Plesk when main domain is hosted on another server. Did you try to apply a solution from this article? Can you send the output of the same screen shots that i sent in the previous email so that I see your configuration?

    other.example.com cannot be secured on a Plesk side as main domain is not hosted in Plesk. Secure other.example.com on the same server where example.com is hosted.
