As a Plesk reseller, you may get requests from customers that require customised branding for their hosting and with this article, you will be able to give that to your customers.
This how-to article shows you how you can add a custom logo using Plesk.
How to Add a Custom Logo to Plesk
First, log in to your plesk account with your username and password. Then at the left-hand side of the plesk control panel click Tools & Settings. Now, under Plesk Appearance, you will see five options:
- Branding – you can change the logo using this setting
- Skins and Color Schemes - you can change the way the plesk interface looks like
- Languages – you can manage the various language packs in plesk
- Interface Management – you can remove buttons and change the user interface (UI) here
- Custom Buttons – you can add shortcuts to your apps using this option
A new page will open showing the various options under the branding tab.
- The first option is the Title of Plesk pages.
You can change the title of your plesk pages to anything you would like, just uncheck the Use default button, add the text and click OK.
- The Second option is the logo file. This option lets you add a logo file from your local computer.
To add a new logo, simply click on Choose File and select a file then click OK. I created a logo using the free GIMP software.
Once you have saved the logo, click the Choose file option to upload the logo to your plesk.
Your logo should now be changed,
- The third option is the logo URL. This option is used whenever you want to link an image from a particular website to be your logo. I used the unsplash website to get a good photo of a MacBook.
Add the link to the logo URL, and then click OK.
Remember that you can only choose one option between adding a Logo file or Logo URL but not both. That's it; your plesk now looks more customised and has your personal touch.
