Sub-domain limit on Plesk (Free)

I’m using a Plesk Droplet and using the free version of Plesk. I already have two sub-domains running on the same setup along with one website. All using WordPress.

I’m facing DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error while creating third sub-domain.

Is there any limit on subdomains in Plesk?

Could you please make sure that the subdomain’s DNS records are pointed correctly? You can check the DNS resolution of the subdomain using this website -

If the DNS settings were recently updated you will see the DNS propagation all over the world.

Also you can try accessing the subdomain using alternative browser in the meantime or try to clear your browser’s cache and try again.

If the DNS is pointed correctly then you will need to wait for the DNS to fully updated which might take up to 24 hours due to DNS cache from all the ISPs.

Let me know how it goes.


  • Hey Alex, thanks for responding.

    I haven’t changed the domain name or DNS. I just created a sub-domain on an existing domain.

    As checked with the tool you mentioned, A record is all red crossed.

    I’m not able to figure out why it’s with this sub-domain only.
