Addon domain for plesk
I am a avid cPanel user. I love it and all of its features, however the company I work for has servers with Plesk installed. Today I had to launch a micro site with its own domain, but was a sub directory of the parent domain.
Plesk does have the option to create domain aliases but those are basically parked domains with no options beyond that. So, here is what I had to do.
Instead of adding a domain to the parent domain, I had to create a new domain by going to Domains -> Add New Domain.
Next I picked the client to get to the domain configuration.
The key is to select "0 - Domain Forward" as the template for the domain.
On the hosting page it will ask what kind of forwarding do you want to do? Pick "Framed Forwarding" which will redirect the user to parent domain without them knowing it.
On the next screen you can put in the url to the parent domain and subfolder and all is good!
