How to Change the .NET Framework Version with Plesk Control Panel

By default Windows Shared Hosting Plesk Control Panel package comes pre-configured with APS.NET Framework version 2.0

When choosing your ASP.NET version through the control panel, you are actually choosing the CLR version (Common Language Runtime Version), This means that in order to use ASP.NET 3.5, you must select "Version 2" as ASP.NET 3.5 is an add-on for CLR 2.0. The same is true about ASP.NET 4.5 - selecting ASP.NET 4.0 actually loads the .NET 4.5 assemblies.

If you wish to change the version of ASP.NET Framework running on your website, you can do so from the Plesk Control Panel using following steps:
