    When you press the preview button from domain control panel you get a 404 (not found) error. The address of the broswer opened is: http://<host>/<domain.com> e.g. http://www.finexe.com / clientdomain.com

    Technical info:

    The 404 is due to that Plesk is trying to retrieve the directory below your default directory. In the file structure it wants to retrieve: c:\inetpub\vosts\finexe.com\httpdocs\clientdomain.com




    Two steps:

    1. Check that you do not have a default website for the IP the client domain is on from controlpanel: server -> ippool->ip
    if you do have a default:
    A. create a new domain with physical hosting
    B. change the default to it from server->ippool> #hosting
    C.Delete the domain
    you should not have a default domain now for the ip

    2. All logins should be made from the IP. e.g.: http://<ip>/<clientdomain.com>
