Hi @jnasser,

In theory you should be able to configure your WHMCS billing to deploy webistes on your plesk droplet with DigitalOcean. There are no such limitations so you should be able to do so.

Having said that, you’ll need to acquire a droplet with Plesk from the MarketPlace of DigitalOcean and configure it to your liking.

I can’t think of any other ‘extension’ which would work.


  • No i don’t mean extension exactly, i mean my current vps on (1&1) using plesk .

    if i want to extend my current server to digital ocean is that possible, do i need to buy plesk license again.


    • Hi @jnasser,

      There are 2 options. One is to get the automated Plesk Droplet from DigitalOcean’s MarketPlace - With Plesk on DigitalOcean you get access to a modern and lightweight stack to build, secure, and run websites and applications through one intuitive browser-based interface. The 1-click version of Plesk on DigitalOcean is FREE for up to 3 domains.

      The second options would be for you to create a droplet and install Plesk manually on it however then you’ll need to provide a license for Plesk.

      To directly answer your question, I don’t think Plesk allow for the same License to be used on two/three or any number of servers but one. Most probably you’ll need to acquire a new one.

      Having said that, this is something you should contact Plesk Support about it. They might have some offers for you.
