Pre-delegation access to FrontPage managed site with Plesk

On a server using Plesk, it is possible to setup event handlers that will create a host in the primary domain so that a client’s domain can be managed with FrontPage prior to delegation of the client’s domain name. For example, if the primary domain is “” and the client domain is “” with an FTP user of “acme” then the “” can be created and used until “” becomes active.

Place the following script in the cgi-bin folder of the primary domain:

Now from the Plesk control panel goto Server -> Event Manager -> Add New Event Handler

In the Event field select “Physical hosting created”.

In the Command field enter:

/home/httpd/vhosts/ <new_domain_name> <new_system_user> <new_ip_address>
