How to set Parallels Plesk's SEO redirect feature to be disabled (Preferred domain value to "None") by default for new domains.


Currently, this option is not available. Feature request PPP-5274 has been created.


As a workaround, an Event Handler can be created to set "Preferred domain" to "None" (SEO Redirect disabled), triggered by creating a domain with hosting.

For Windows

  1. Create an Event Handler triggered by physical hosting creation. Go to Tools & Settings > Event Manager > Add New Event Handler:

    Event: Physical hosting created
    Priority: lowest (0)
    User: Plesk Administrator
    Command: c:\seo.bat <new_domain_name>
  2. Create an C:\seo.bat file using Notepad and save following line in it:

    "%plesk_cli%\subscription.exe" -u %1 -seo-redirect none

For Linux

  1. Create an Event Handler triggered when hosting settings are created. Go to Tools & Settings > Event Manager > Add New Event Handler:

    Event: Hosting settings created
    Priority: lowest (0)
    User: root
    Command: /usr/local/psa/bin/subscription -u <new_domain_name> -seo-redirect none
