    By the way, what's the back door to the users site that I can give them to use until their domain name propagates?

    That's one thing Plesk should email to the user is this back door link when user registers.

    thanks

    I believe he is referring to 'site preview' or domain preview.

    To use this feature, your client would have to login to the Plesk control panel as the domain user, then click on the Site Preview icon on the Domain administration page.

    This is according to the Plesk Admin manual.
    http://download1.sw-soft.com/Plesk/Plesk7.5/Doc/plesk-7.5r-admins-guide-html/ch05s14.html

    The other way they can see the site is to have them change their workstation's DNS server(s) to your Plesk server's IP, then when the lookup occurs, your Plesk box will give them the proper IP and their browser will be able to bring up their domain properly even before propagation since the DNS server (your Plesk box) is the Master DNS server for their domain.

    On my server (running Plesk Reloaded 7.5) the link is http://xxx.xx.xx.xxx/$sitepreview/domainname.com/
    Where xxx.xx.xx.xxx is the shared IP address and domainname.com is the domain name of the site I want to preview. This is visible without the need to log in.

    This doesn't seem to work for me. I'm running Plesk 7.5.4 Linux. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    Sorry, I'm running the Windows version - it must be different on Linux

    Very clever... Didn't realize this would work! :)

    DaveNet, do you not see a "site preview" button. If so, use it and look to see how it works.

    Also, try this:
    https://xx.xx.xx.xx:8443/sitepreview/http/domain.com/

    Yeah, sometimes being 'old school' is a good thing.
