On Windows Hosting

If your domain name is not pointed to your HostBreak Windows web hosting account, and you want to use a temporary URL to view your account on the server, please use the following:

Plesk 9.5 Customers
http://server.nameserver.com/$sitepreview/yourdomain.com/

You can find this link in your account welcome email.

In the example above, if the server was alpha.hostbreak.com, and your account was xyzblog.net the URL would be:

http://plesk.hostbreak.com/$sitepreview/xyzblog.net/

Plesk 10/Plesk 11/Plesk 12 Customers

http://clientdomain.tld.69-4-94-116.plesk10.mywebsitebox.com

You can find this link in your HostBreak account welcome email also.

In the example above, if the customer domain was "demopage.com" the URL would be:

http://demopage.com.69-4-94-116.plesk10.mywebsitebox.com
