Setting up a WordPress website on EasySpace for Plesk Control

There are a couple of tricks you need to know to get it EasySpace and Plesk and WordPress to seamlessly work with each other.

Change your A record on EasySpace to as follows adding in the IP to your Plesk server.

Now add a domain from your Plesk Control Panel but do not tick the “www” box.

The URL for your new website is http://yourwebsite.co.uk – which is how WordPress wants to see it.

Now setup a subdomain for your website (tick Physical Hosting), leave the “www” box un-ticked and make the subdomain “www”.

Lastly upload this (modified) index.html

<html><head>
<meta http-equiv=”Refresh” content=”0; url=http://yourwebsite.co.uk/” />
</head><body>
<p>Please follow <a href=”http://yourwebsite.co.uk/”>link</a&gt;!</p>
</body></html>

As long as the you set the timeout of 0 (zero) seconds it accepted by Google as a 301 permanent redirect and will not affect SEO.

This means that  http://www.yourwebsite.co.uk will also work as  http://yourwebsite.co.uk

Done.
