Hello Bitdragon,

Yes, you can definitely use the Plesk Premium Site Builder on a subdomain. Note that the Builder works on a license per published domain website basis. If you have already published a website, then you have consumed the license. You can easily tell if your site is published by simply looking at the website in the Builder administrator. If there's a green checkmark next to it, then it has been published.

However, the an additional license for the Premium Site Builder is only $12 per year. And you can obtain one very quickly and easily. You need only login to to your Account Management Panel (AMP), go to Additional Services and Select OTHER. Then select your subscription, and you will see the option to add another Builder license.

You can find the directions for this process here:

Note that after you have added your license, if you intend to publish a SUBDOMAIN, you need to go into the PUBLISHING settings and make sure that your working directory reflects the location of the subdomain that you created. You will also need make sure that your Site URL also matches the subdomain location.

As per your example, the working directory for Your domain of would look like this:


You would not be specifying the HTML file when publishing the subdomain. Also, please note, that the path for the main domain in that URL, should reflect the root folder that you have created when you added the ADD-ON domain (in this case you added: You can find this information in the ADD-ON domains section of the Cpanel.

If you continue to have problems with publishing or are unable to get the additional license, please contact technical support, or reply to this post by leaving a comment below.
