Manage Plesk on the Go: Introducing Plesk Mobile for Android

These days, smartphones help us to make business work faster and support our customers from anywhere. Plesk is growing ever more smartphone friendly. In Plesk 12.0, we made the Power User Panel adaptive to the monitor size of the user’s device. In Plesk 12.5, the Service Provider Panel also became adaptive. But internet connection is not always fast and stable, it’s awkward to enter strong passwords on mobile phone, you may need to manage several servers, etc. The solution to these issues is Plesk Mobile App For Android! It is out now for Android devices, and an iOS app is in active development.

Using Plesk Mobile App, you can manage several servers as the administrator or a site owner.

Running Plesk Mobile App on Android for the first time

Plesk Mobile App For Android - Add Account

After adding a server as a site owner, you are ready to use the app.

After adding a server as the administrator, you might see the following warning:

Plesk Mobile App - Mobile Api extension Plesk Mobile App - Installing Plesk Mobile Api extension

It means that a required extension is not installed on your server. The extension provides a secure API connection and sends push notifications to your device. Just click “Install” and Plesk Mobile App will install the latest version of the extension on your server.

Push notifications are enabled by default. They will notify you about possible issues with your server and help you to keep the uptime high and your customers happy.

If you are a site owner

For site owners (and administrators too), there are several features that help you manage your sites in an easy manner.

Plesk Mobile - Manage hosts Plesk Mobile App For Android - Basic Statistics

You can quickly make changes to your site using the File Manager. You can edit files in the built-in editor or some more full featured third party app.

Managing the website content is not the only feature of Plesk. You can make any changes available in Plesk transparently navigating its interface, and you can add quick links for your favourite or most often used features.

If you are the server administrator

There are several options available only to the server administrator. If you used Plesk Mobile Manager before, you should already be familiar with them.

You can start and stop services on your server directly from your device.

With Plesk Mobile App, you can also do the following:
– Restart your server (requires the administrator’s password).
– Change the administrator’s password.
– Retrieve and roll back license keys.
– Restrict access to your server.
– Browse Plesk error and access logs.

Also on the About screen you can find the Odin support contact information and a link to the Plesk forum.

One of very useful additional features is transparent navigation from the app to native Plesk interface. Since it’s adaptive, you can fully manage your server without entering the password every time.

Plesk Mobile App For Android - server management
Note that you can manage several servers and accounts from the app. Just add them all and you won’t need to enter the password over and over again to manage the server.

So, if you have an Android device and a Plesk server, make sure to download Plesk Mobile App from Google Play!


  1. Plesk is one of the most powefull servers.

  2. “you won’t need to enter the password over and over again to manage the server.”

    I don’t want to store the server password on the phone. Please make storage of the password on the phone optional, not required, so that I can store a server account but choose to enter the password each time.

    • Plesk Mobile application does not store passwords. When you log in for the first time, Plesk Mobile generates authentication token on the Plesk server side and uses this token for communication.

  3. The latest version of Plesk Mobile v1.1.0 has an protocol issue with Plesk Panel Linux v11.5.30#55 running CentOS 6.4.

    I got a error msg about “Protocol version 16.6.0. is not supported. Current protocol version is”

    Ffix that please! thanks! regards!

  4. IOS app not connect to server

  5. 1) if multiple accounts are configured, it would be better to start the app in idle mode and wait which account the user selects for usage within the app (instead of logging in automatically with the account that was in use when exiting the app last time before).

    2) @data transfer for admins: there should be some info about the timespan that is represented by these traffic numbers. are they since activation of the server/license? or are they since the last reboot of the operating system of that server? or anything else? is there any option to reset the numbers/statistics shown?

    • Thank you for your feedback. I have passed these comments to Plesk R&D and they will consider them as improvements in future versions.

  6. Hi,
    I’ve installed this really noce app, but in one of my servers, it doesn(t work. I Can’t install mobile API from my samsung android phone.
