Windows Dedicated Host - How to install software on your dedicated box?


We at HostingRaja provides our customers with Plesk Panel for Windows Dedicated Server. Plesk is a well-known hosting package that allows a web server administrator to set up new domain, account, email account, applications and DNS entries via a web-based interface.

Mainly there are two ways to install software on your server:

  1. Install software using your Plesk control panel.

  2. Install Software using RDP (Remote Desktop connection)


1. Installation of software using Plesk Panel.

Open a Web browser and type : yourip:8880 into the address bar of your browser.

From main page of Plesk panel, click “Applications

Click on All Available Applications

Enter your desired application in the search box and press enter, if your desired application is there and click install.

If you don't find your desired software in the application area then you can not install it from Plesk panel. For for installing that particular application you need to access RDP on your system.
