How can I preview my Plesk site before switching the DNS?

Updated by Josselyn Rodriguez

After you create a website and put the files in the server, it does not become available on the internet right away. After you register a domain name or update the domain's IP address, DNS propagation has to complete before people can visit your website, which may take 24-48 hours. However, Plesk allows you to browse your website immediately after it has been published using the site preview function.

To preview a website:

  1. Go to Websites & Domains.
  2. Click Preview under the name of the website you want to preview.

Your website will open in a new browser tab and you can share the preview link with other people.

If the Preview button is missing from the Websites & Domains page, please contact us.
