While loading the site, I see the following error:

This webpage has a redirect loop


The issue occurs when two different redirects are used:

a. Some CMS engines (like Joomla) have their own redirect system in an .htaccess file.

b. Parallels Plesk Panel (Plesk) has a Preferred domain option, which adds a 301 redirect for the domain.

If the preferred domain value in Plesk is set to "domain.tld" and CMS redirects all requests to "", you will get a redirect loop.


If you have a CMS with its own redirect system, it is recommended that you set the Preferred domain option to "None".
