    Hi,

    Is it possible in Plesk to create a record named controlpanel.domain.com pointing to 10.10.10.1:8443

    Where "domain.com" could be the master domain in the server as well as any other domain hosted, an 10.10.10.1 is the IP address of the Web server.

    Best regards

    There is nothing Plesk-specific about setting something like that up. Just create the domain controlpanel.domain.com and have the index redirect to https://10.10.10.1:8443/. There are numerous ways to do that (JavaScript, PHP, frames, apache config, .htaccess, etc.).

    Thank you Breun,

    I thought there was a way to make it using the DNS management without system manipulation.

    Greetings

    I don't believe DNS has any notion of protocols (http://) and ports :)8443), so I don't think that's going to work.

    I understand now the first you said.

    The server manages the ports after the DNS resolution.

    Thank you

    I dont want to hijack this thread but I'm trying to do the same thing and all I can get from support is to manually create a subdomain for each domain and place an appropriate redirection page. I would prefer something automated and also something the client can not delete if they're feeling curious (they have management of their own subdomains).

    I'd like admin.clientdomain.tld to redirect to https://ourdomain.tld:8443 somewhat in the same fashion webmail.clientdomain.tld works.

    I'd like it specifically to go to our domain as plesk doesn't really care of the address in the browser and the security certificate is installed on our domain so as to avoid the security warning.

    I know plesk doesn't support this directly, but can anyone offer some assitance in configuring apache to do this? Thanks.
