Preview an Added Domain through Plesk

It is possible to add a domain to Plesk and set up the site associated with it even if the the domain does not point to the IP address of your VPS. When transferring your site from another hosting provider to a 1&1 Virtual Server, it allows you to ensure that everything is in place before you make the DNS transfer.

Plesk for Linux
After setting up the domain in Plesk, enter the following address into your browser:
http://<IP_address>:8443/sitepreview/http/<domain.com>/

Plesk for Windows
After setting up the domain in Plesk, enter the following address into your browser:
http://<IP_address>/$sitepreview/<domain.com>/
Please note:
The information in the brackets should be populated with your information (without including the brackets). Replace <domain.com> with the domain to be previewed as it is appears in Plesk under the domains section.
