    Hey Guys,

    I'd like for my users to be able to login through an address like

    rather then having the :8443 on the end.

    Can this be done?

    Sorry this cannot be done as the URL you want will access the port 80 which is for Aapache and Plesk runs on Port 8443.

    So this is impossile.

    Feel free to contact me for issues and contracts at bandurao@gmail.com

    Things looks somethig different:

    1. Plesk uses Apache for CP management
    2. IIS is used for web-sites
    3. Ports must be different

    Therefore Apache and IIS must use different ports , however there is trick that can be done:

    1.Redirection, put redirection code in index.htm, or, it will be better, to login.html.Code in login.html simply redirects to port 8443
    In this case user can type:
    http://my.domain.com/login.html and will be redirected to

    When you create a domain the default index file is created under its document root that is as follows:

    One more thing to consider:
    1. When you use redirection you need change default page for your domain, or people instead of browsing your site will be redirected to login page
    2. You can make it as follow
    a) create some page (e.g. main.html)
    b) go to IIS mmc->right click site-> properties
    c) click Documents tab-> click add
    d) click document name in text box (e.g. main.html)
    c) enjoy Plesk :)
