I am trying to set up as following

control.domain.com to http://domain.com:8880/

Plesk is running on that port.

Infact if I would like any website hosted on the server if accessed with "control.*" should go to http://mywebsite.com:8880/?. Is that possible?. Or we have to write rules for each websites?.

I do not know to enter rule here, so added as a image

enter image description here

  • so when anyone open your site like mysite.com , you want to redirect them to mysite.com :8880? – Helping Hands Dec 19 '14 at 5:11
  • No,when someone visits control.mysite.com, he should go to mysite.com:8880. – user2544596 Dec 19 '14 at 5:21
  • you site built with asp.net? – Helping Hands Dec 19 '14 at 5:23
  • Not all of them. Some of them are php based. – user2544596 Dec 19 '14 at 5:41

Create a subdomain. for example: redirect.mydomain.com and add code to index.php (i will use php for redirect):


$header = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];

header("Location: http://$header:8080");


save and close.

Create default dns for control:

conrtol.domain.com and assign to redirect.mydomain.com

Thats all.

When you create a new site. Default dns control.domain.com will assign to new domain.
