Node std_fwd

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:

Node std_fwd

  • 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 (common.xsd).

 

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>123.123.123.123</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>123.123.123.123</ip_address>
		 <ip_address>2002:5bcc:18fd:c:123:123:123:123</ip_address>
      </std_fwd>
   </hosting>
</add>
</webspace>
</packet>
