I was wondering if would it be possible to protect the “” URL from search engines listing perhaps using the htaccess to redirect the 8443 port from “DOMAIN” to elsewhere?

  1. Try to use (if I’ve understood your question right)

    <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow,noarchive"/>

    And google about robots.txt… don’t remember the syntax…

  2. You can read about using User-Agent detection with mod_rewrite here, how to setup your robots.txt for Google, Yahoo!, and MSN/Live Search – however, this all assumes sane and cooperative bots. There’s little that can be done to protect against agressive, ‘black-hat’ bots.

  3. You will need to create a robots.txt file containing the following:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    and place it in usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs. Note that the location might vary depending on your installation.

    Afterwards, verify that the file served at points to this file and has the same contents. Also make sure that (the port serving your public site [usually the implied port 80]) does not point to the same file. If it does then you site won’t be indexed at all.

    This file will tell Google and other bots to not index the Plesk pages such as the login page. For more info about robots.txt check the Google Help page about robots.txt or Remove a page or site from Google’s search results. Additionally you may want to add your domain to the Google Webmaster Tools and check that the Plesk pages have indeed been removed by checking the removals page.
