    I ask to excuse, my English is not particularly good.

    The first question, is there also a Plesk forum in German?

    The second question is more complex. I have opened my new Plesk and try to furnish a Domain, only for practice. The Domain should be fps-factory.de.vu and this I have also put on under the point "Add new Domain ".

    Now there I also see the Domain. How can I call this now about the browser? I can go on "Site Preview" and then he registers me index at the following address:
    https: // air961.startdedicated.com:8443/sitepreview/http/fps-factory.de.vu/? however, previous_page=dom_ctrl

    This cannot do the only possibility to indicate my address or? If there is not still the possibility about the IP + Domain, for example:

    http: // air961.startdedicated.com/fps-factory.de.vu

    I can`t reach the index.html of the domain directly in the browser. Can somebody say to me the path which is used under Plesk then?

    Many thanks Stephan

    Method 1:
    Set your new domain as the default domain for the IP address. Go to Server - IP addresses, click on the '0' zero in the Hosting column for the IP address. Select the new domain, click on 'Set as Default'. Then browse to http: // ipaddress

    Method 2:
    If you point your workstation primary DNS server to the Plesk server's IP address, then your new domain should be able to be browsed normally:


    There is currently no German specific forum, but there are a number of members who are German and visit the forums regularly.

    I hope I understood your question properly.

    Of Course... you understood my question correctly - but i couldn`t understood the answer :D

    I think we start at the beginning, this makes it probably easier.

    My Server IP is

    I have a Domain "fps-factory.de.vu" as the next - I open the Plesk to surface and go to "add New Domain " - this think I is right so far.

    Then I put down on top under domain the name following:


    Then I select mine template and with ip adress mine stands ip (Shared)
    Then I place a hook with Proceed to hosting setup and press button OK. In the next window I choose the Hosting Type physical hosting and confirm with OK.
    In the next window my FTP Login gives and password.

    I put a hook with PHP, CGI and mod_perl support. Afterwards again OK. Now I have my Domain main side. With Hosting stands (Domain has physical hosting on IP Now I can reach the side about site Preview and about FTP, but i couldn`t reach it about the browser.
    The link when i push Site Preview is:


    This is Online...

    If I click on DNS the following comes:

    Below completely on top DNS zone for the domain fps-factory.de.vu is a of master DNS server stands I have contained several areas Host / Record Type and Value which following: fps-factory.de.vu. NS ns.fps-factory.de.vu.
    ns.fps-factory.de.vu. A
    fps-factory.de.vu. A

    Till present so far I have come and now I would like to brag for the end still index.html with the DomainProvider / put down. In addition do not need I now the path to index.html on my server where I, however knows like him is. How do I call mine index.html for this Domain in the browser what have I made wrong or have forgotten? I should it the side his which one also under site Preview appeals. I believe, I need a quite slow explanation:D

    Thynk You very Much...

    You are transferring the domain from one host to another? The current IP address for the domain is different than (dnsstuff.com shows the current IP is

    Have you used FTP or SSH to upload your web pages (index.html)? If you have not, then you will need to do this next.

    When I browse to the Site Preview URL, it is showing me the page:
    You need to upload your web pages.

    I still have no sides upload. I would like to reach the index.html like Site Preview which points me the available standard index for my account, directly in the browser. That is this what I try.

    I think there must be a Path to the index.html, because i can work with the file per FTP or Site Preview. I thought for example the path is:


    I think it must possible to reach my site directly like Site Preview or I`ll be wrong ?

    After this i can upload my pages... because then they are reachable...

    As was posted earlier:
    In the Plesk Control Panel (log in as user admin):

    Click on Servers
    Click on IP Addresses
    Find the line with the IP address
    Click on the '0' in the Hosting column on that line
    Select the domain 'fps-factory.de.vu'
    Click on 'Set as Default'

    Then you should be able to browse to:
    and it will bring up the index.html file for your domain.

    If you are not the server administrator, and if this is a shared IP address with other domains (not yours), then this procedure will not work.

    better explanation....

    Hi Guys.

    I have some entries in conf files and maybe help ..

    for this example I will use my test platform (FreeBsd 4.9 + Plesk 7.5.4 + Sitebuilder)

    in /usr/local/psa/apache/conf I have de default http.conf with:

    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex at_domains_index.html index.html index.htm index.php index.ph
    p4 index.php3 index.shtml index.cfm

    and the last statment is:

    Include /usr/local/psa/apache/conf/sitebuilder.conf

    to load the specific parameters to SiteBuilder..

    Where I vave (and tested now this):

    DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

    If I move the index.html to index.htm the apache start do deliver the default index.php If I return the index.htm to index.html it delivery contents from this file..

    the apache version in default install form plesk in FreeBSD is 1.3.33 and it works.
