How do I log in to Plesk?

This guide will show you how to access Plesk, our hosting control panel of choice for all of our shared servers.

You will need to know only your Client Centre login details, which consist of your email address and a password you created when you created your account with us.

Shared / Standard Hosting

  1. Login to the Client Centre. If you are already logged in, when you visit that link, choose “Dashboard” from the menu at the top of the screen.
  2. Click the “Manage” button beside the hosting plan you wish to work on.
  3. Choose the big “Open Control Panel” button to log in to Plesk.
You should now be automatically logged in to Plesk!

VPS Hosting

If you have a VPS and you’ve got Plesk installed, follow these steps to auto-login:

  1. Login to the Client Centre. If you are already logged in, when you visit that link, choose “Dashboard” from the menu at the top of the screen.
  2. Click the “Manage” button beside VPS you wish to work on.
  3. Choose the small “Access Plesk” button under “Configuration”

Troubleshooting

Q: After following these steps, it does not log me in. I get a login screen for Plesk and don’t know your username and password.
A: Update your Plesk password to force a sync between the Client Centre and Plesk:
  • Follow steps 1 and 2 above
  • Choose the “Change” button under “Password”.
  • Enter your new password
  • Choose “Save Changes”
  • Now click the Open Control Panel button
