Changing Branding and Interface Settings

This chapter describes how to select Plesk’s interface language, prohibit multiple sessions under your account, select the interface view, rebrand Plesk, and add links to external sites or web applications.

Change Interface Language

In addition to English (United States), Plesk can be viewed in a number of other languages. See the full list of supported languages in the Localization Guide.

If you want to switch Plesk to any of these languages, go to My Profile > Interface Preferences.


Prohibiting Multiple Sessions Under Your Account

By default Plesk allows multiple simultaneous sessions for several users logged in to Plesk using the same login and password combination. This can be useful when delegating management functions to other users or in case if you accidentally close your browser without logging out, thus becoming unable to log in again until your session expires. If you do not need this capability, to switch it off, go to My Profile > Interface Preferences and clear the Allow multiple sessions checkbox.

Changing Plesk View

Depending on your goals, Plesk provides two different views you can choose from when working with Plesk:

  • Select Service Provider if you use Plesk for selling web hosting services.
  • Select Power User if you use Plesk for you own needs, for example, to manage your own websites, email accounts, and other services.

Read more about the views in Interface Views.

To quickly change your view, go to My Profile > Interface Preferences and select your interface.

You also can quickly change the interface view by clicking Change View in the left bottom part of the page.


Add Branded Content

To disguise the fact that you are reselling another company’s hosting resources, you can add your own branded content to Plesk. Specifically, this content may be the following:

  • The logo in the top left corner. Upload your own logo and your customers will see this instead of the original Plesk logo in the Customer Panel. Use a GIF, JPEG, or PNG file for your logo, preferably not larger than 100 kilobytes to minimize the download time. To ensure that your logo will fit into the top area, we recommend that you use an image 50 pixels in height.
  • The URL to which the logo points. Make your logo a clickable link that points to your company’s website to let your customers easily open the website any time they are in the Customer Panel.
  • The pages title. Let your customers see your company name or other relevant text in their browsers’ title bars when they work in the Customer Panel.

To change any of these settings, go to Tools & Utilities > Plesk Branding.
