Plesk provides a new special modification of the user interface called the Power User Interface. It is designed for users who are not reselling shared hosting services or accommodating new resellers and customers, but need the full power of Plesk feature set over the Small Business Panel.

In this view, both server administration and hosting services management take place in the Control Panel. As this view does not assume a reselling service to others is needed, it does not provide facilities for managing hosting plans, subscriptions, resellers, and customers. Also, as the server administration functions are included into Control Panel in this view, the Server Administration Panel becomes unavailable. Power User Interface differences include:

  • Missing hierarchy of user accounts specific to shared hosting: no resellers, no customers.
  • Missing service plans, subscriptions, and limits on amounts of resources consumed by websites.
  • Single simplified admin interface for managing the system.

Power User Interface can be enabled with the poweruser utility:

# /usr/local/psa/bin/poweruser --on

Power User Interface also can be enabled after the Plesk installation at any time in Tools & Settings > Interface Management.
