Open Plesk with domain

Apache DNS Ubuntu 18.04

Hey there!

I’ve created a droplet with Plesk and Ubuntu preinstalled. Everything works fine so far!
Is there a way to open the Plesk-Interface by using domain instead of the ip:port? Do I have to realize that with apache or does Plesk has an build-in support for that?

If your domain is currently pointing to your Droplet IP and is accessible, you should be able to use the domain and prefix the port to access Plesk.

Plesk uses SSL by default, so you may see a security warning unless you’ve configured an SSL certificate for your domain.

For example, if my domain is, I can then use the following URL to access Plesk:

If you’ve not yet added your domain to Plesk, you can click on Websites & Domains from the left side panel, followed by the Add Domain button. Once the domain is added, update the A entry for your domain to point to the IP of the Droplet where Plesk is installed and allow the DNS to resolve.
