The std_fwd node is used to specify standard forwarding for sites within a subscription. When the user goes to a site on which the standard forwarding is set, Plesk redirects this user from the requested URL to the destination URL. This is done explicitly: the user sees the real ‘destination’ address in the path bar of the browser.
The std_fwd node is structured as follows:
- The dest_url node is required. It specifies the URL to which the user will be redirected explicitly at the attempt to visit the specified site. Data type: forwardingUrl (string, 1 to 255 characters long, spaces not allowed).
- The ip_address node is required. It specifies IP addresses associated with the site. You can provide either one ip_address node for the site's IPv4 or IPv6 address or two such nodes for both of them. Data type: ip_address (
The following sample packet specifies standard forwarding for a new site:
<packet> <webspace> <add> <gen_setup> <name>newdomain.com</name> <customer-id>1234</customer-id> <ip_address>126.96.36.199</ip_address> <ip_address>2002:5bcc:18fd:c:123:123:123:123</ip_address> <status>0</status> </gen_setup> <hosting> <std_fwd> <dest_url>www.olddomain.com</dest_url> <ip_address>188.8.131.52</ip_address> <ip_address>2002:5bcc:18fd:c:123:123:123:123</ip_address> </std_fwd> </hosting> </add> </webspace> </packet>
