    Is there a way to access a site hosted on Plesk before DNS changes have propogated?

    ie. I have a site foo.com and would like to upload all the content to it, but foo.com is still pointing to the old server.

    Is there an address such as pleskserverip/foo?

    You can use the Plesk site preview, or you can modify your local PC's HOSTS file to point the domain to a specific IP address.

    You can find the site preview button under Domains. Typically the URL will look like:
    Code:
    https://www.yourdomain.com:8443/sitepreview/http/somedomain.com

    Thanks. I didn't think of changing the hosts file.
