    Heya folks,

    I'm moving servers and before I finish moving files I don't want to change the site's DNS because the new server is pretty empty as we're still moving all the files..

    But I would like to see how the site looks on the new server - to see if I configured everything right and all, is there a way to do it?

    Say I configured the domain yada.com using plesk on my new server whose is but I didn't yet set the domain's dns so going to yada.com won't lead me to the new server - is there anyway to get to yada.com site hosting on the new server to load on the browser? by going to

    Thank you,
    - Ben

    In the control panel, go to Server - IP addresses.

    Click on the '0' (zero) under the Hosting column for the IP address

    Select the radio button on the end of the row for the yada.com domain.

    Click on the link above 'Set as default'.

    Now if you browse to URL it should show you the yada.com site.

    This assumes your Plesk server has DNS entries for the domain which point it to (you have to pick an IP to setup the hosting on the Plesk server) regardless that you have not submitted the DNS changes to the registrar.

    It works! Thank you so much!

    Thank you so very very very much! it works perfectly! I'm really new to plesk so I might hit you folks with more questions I can't find out the answer too (I see a lot of those flash tutorials but they are too slow and always go around my questions without hitting them hehe)

    Thank you SOOOO MUCH!
