Open Plesk with domain

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.

Hello, do I need to add my domain also to Digital Ocean panel or can I manage all DNS zone by Plesk? Thanks for the support.

  • Hi,

    In general, it is not required but it depends on what you want to get as a result.

    As an example: you can use Plesk for domains’ management and use the Plesk DigitalOcean DNS extension for integration Plesk with DigitalOcean DNS service. It means all domains will synchronize from Plesk with DigitalOcean DNS service and you don’t need to create additional slave DNS servers.
