    Hello

    how do i view my website via ip address. when i type in the ip address in my browser the site display the default plesk page

    i have already set correctly the ip address on that site.

    is there any way in viewing it directly thru ip address?

    Is this IP resolvable to domain name? Do you have PTR record for this IP?

    On any computer connected to internet. On unix you can use 'host' commans and IP of your domain. On Windows - 'nslookup' command.

    To specify what Web site will open when users refer to the Web resource on your server by an IP address:
    Go to Home > IP Addresses (in the Server group) and click the respective number in the Hosting column. All sites hosted on this IP address will be listed.
    Select the site you need and click Set as Default.

    Hi

    i followed your instruction it still points to the default plesk page.

    i went to home > IP Address then selected the IP address > set the default domain > www.mydomainname.com

    default plesk page is still showing up....

    since it didn't work i went back to


    home > IP Address on the right portion theres a domain row with a number so i click on it then set www.mydomainname.com set as default.

    still it shows me the plesk default page.
