Question

How to access a domain using the IP address instead of the domain name like http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ?

Answer

To specify which website will open when users refer to the web resource on your server by an IP address:

  1. Open Panel > Tools & Settings > IP addresses > <domain_ip. > Default site .
    All sites hosted on this IP will be listed.

  2. Click on the address assigned to the website and select the Default site from the drop-down list.

    Set domain here

    Note: The default server page will be shown if the Default site option is set to None

Additionally, it is possible to set the default domain using command line:

C:\> plesk bin subscription_settings --set-default example.com
