"Use Domain From Your Account"
If you are missing this option, please visit this knowledge base article:  Missing option 'Use Domain From Your Account'
Pick this option to link a domain name that is already registered on the existing customer account and is free to be used for Webhosting Plesk. DNS records will be overwritten when linking.

"Register New Domain"
If you want to register a new domain name for this new website please pick this option. Additional charges apply for the domain fee.

"Transfer Your Domain"
If your domain is currently registered at an external provider you can use this option to transfer the domain name to the control panel. A transfer code must be requested at your current domain registrar. Additional cost apply for the domain transfer.

"Add Your Domain"
In case you want to add a domain name registered at an external provider, and you don't want it to be tranferred you can pick this option. The domain will be added to the control panel, but no DNS hosting will be provided. You will need to manage DNS records manually on external provider side.
