Website Hosting

WEBSITE HOSTING

The Website hosting means that a website is physically located on the server.

For the website hosting type you can specify:

  • Document root. The location of the directory where all files and subdirectories of the site will be kept. You can use the default directory httpdocs or specify another directory.
  • Preferred domain. Typically, any website is available on two URLs: with the www prefix (like in www.example.com) and without it (like in example.com). We recommend that you always redirect visitors to one of these URLs (typically to the non-www version). For example, after you set the Preferred domain to the non-www version (example.com), site visitors will be redirected to this URL even if they specify www.example.com in their browsers.


Plesk uses the search engine friendly HTTP 301 code for such a redirection. This allows preserving search engine rankings of your site (preferred domain). If you turn off the redirection by choosing None, search engines will treat both URL versions (www and non-www) as URLs of different sites. As a result, rankings will be split between these URLs.
