After a website has been created, it does not become available on the Internet right away.
After you register a domain name or change your website’s IP address, DNS propagation has to complete before people can visit your website.
It can take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours.
However, Plesk enables you to browse your website immediately after it has been published using the site preview function.
But there are times you may want to show your site to someone when your domain name is not registered yet.
There are several ways to do it without giving a person access to your customer account and here is one:
To preview a site:
- Go to Websites & Domains.
- Click Preview below the domain name of the website that you want to preview.
You site will open in a new browser window. You can share the preview link with other people – it works anywhere in the world.
If the Preview button is missing from the Websites & Domains page, contact our support team.
Note: The contents of password-protected directories might be inaccessible in the Preview mode.
