Plesk Panel Access

    Hi there. Firstly sorry if this question has been asked or resolved before but I can't seem to find the answer using the search function.

    hopefully its a simple one.

    basically i understand that plesk runs on 8443 which is cool. however for my users to access it they must use a specific url i.e. https://mydomain.com:8443

    i'm hoping that i can change that so they can all use https://theirdomain.com:8443 which will allow access to the control panel without forwarding to the host url.

    in essence i want to stop the users seeing a forwarded url. is this possible?

    if i am not clear, please ask for more info..

    As soon as the theirdomain.com is setup in DNS to point to the IP of your server - it should not be a problem to access Plesk via https://theirdomain.com:8443

    make sure that they use https:// otherwise plesk will re-direct them to the default plesk URL.

    Ok thanks for the info. It got me thinking and allowed me to create a solution to my problem.

    Firstly I removed the errordocument redirect if you are using http instead of https. I used rewrite commands for this instead.

    Secondly I created a .htaccess file that would redirect any admin.domain.com to https://admin.domain.com:8443.

    This means of course that the user does not need to remember the port number. I achieved this using a rewrite as well.

    As I said thanks for the help, it led me to understand and create a solution.
