Question

How to configure DNS zones for domains if Plesk 12.0 is running behind the NAT?

Resolution

  1. Install the 'NAT Manager' extension:

    • Go to Plesk > Extensions > Extensions Catalog
  2. Match internal IP addresses with appropriate external IP addresses :

    • Go to Plesk > Extensions
    • Click on NAT Manager
    • Select private IP address and add appropriate external IP
  3. All 'A' records in the DNS zone for newly created domains will be matched to the appropriate external IP .

  4. For existing domains, you need to apply your DNS changes:

    • Go to Plesk > Domains > example.com > Websites & Domains > DNS Settings
    • Click on Apply DNS Template Changes
