Googlebot Root Domain

Aug 2, 2008

I am just wondering whether my idea will work for the google search engine.

Basically, I have my official VPS root (home/admin/public_html/) and this is where my main website will be hosted. However, since my VPS will be used for additional website, I will direct additional domains to it.

My second site hosted on this VPS may have a document root of (home/admin/public_html/advertising/). And my domain will then be setup to have that as its document root.

However, when google searches for my second site (e.g. will it go 'below' the domain root? For example, will it also creep the files under /public_html/ for this domain, even though the domains root is /public_html/advertising/?

edit: Or do people host multiple sites differently? Is this an appropriate method?

Root Domain

May 20, 2009

I have a server that I have a few domains on, and I have a question about the root domain. I initially picked any old domain, so now all of my name servers are pointing to this one random domain. I have since purchased a few more premium domains, and am wondering if I should change the nameservers to be the more premium domains? Does this matter? Should I have my "main site" be the root domain? Just trying to understand what the implications could be for me.

Domain Root And Subdomain Structure

Jun 22, 2008

I am a bit confused about domain and sub-domain setup for my website.

I have Wordpress and VBulletin Forum on my website like this:


Right now, my domain points to this folder:

I have a .htaccess file there which redirects it to the wordpress folder i.e.
Redirect permanent /index.php
DirectoryIndex index.php

But, I would like my domain name point directly to the wordpress folder like this:

But the problem when i do that is my "VBulletin" forum get's messed up because then:
[url]----------resolves to--------->

I m thinking to resolve this issues, I will have to add a subdomain for forums like this:
[url]-> [url]

But I am wondering if I do that, won't it fail again, because it will do this:
[url]-----will resolve to----->

Where Domain Document Root Settings Are In CPanel?

Feb 11, 2008

I've done some manual change of document root in httpd.conf for a user. I know that now, I don't need to to manual change since user can set there own folder!

Now, If I rebuild Apache, he will re-do all the configuration to the original one. Where can I find the settings for domain document root so I can change it and EasyApache will rebuild the httpd.conf correctly?

I don't want to remove the domain since I'll lost all email account!

ModSecurity Log - Googlebot?

Oct 3, 2006

Upon reviewing my modsecurity log today, I found an interesting hit from google.


Requesting IP: is

Date: 2006-10-03

Time: 07:10:16

Handler: mod_gzip_handler

Get: /page/index/1&show=25,07,2005?php%20echo%20$bmc_vars%5B'site_url'%5D;%20?%3E/profile.php?id=1

Mod_Security-Message: Access denied with code 406. Pattern match "echo " at THE_REQUEST

Mod_Security-Action: 406


The rule that set off this 406 response was:

SecFilterSelective THE_REQUEST "echo "

What I find interesting is that I do not have any such URL structure on this website that google requested.

Dreamhost Asking Clients To Block GoogleBot

Jun 3, 2007

Yes, it’s quite true. DreamHost representatives are asking their clients to block GoogleBot trough the .htaccess file, because their websites were “hammered by GoogleBot”.

Dreamhost representatives are also guiding their clients to make all their websites “unsearchable and uncrawlable by search engine robots”, because they cause “high memory usage and load on the server”.

PS: This is NOT a rumor. Multiple people are already complaining about Dreamhost asking clients to block search engine spiders. A post in QuickOnlineTips confirms this too.

Initial news bit via Zoso.

Stop Your Server From Blocking Googlebot

May 21, 2008

If your server is blocking googlebot from finding your robots.txt file, how do you configure your firewall to unblock it?

I've searched through Google and I've seen may people just say your firewall is blocking it, but none mention how to really stop it from doing that. Like does Google have an IP it uses, and if so, what is the IP you should whitelist for your server?

As I keep getting that message: Network unreachable: robots.txt unreachable
and I'm sure it's due to a firewall issue, just have no idea how to fix that.

Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Slow Domain Creation On Same Web Space And Doc Root - Authentication Error

Jun 26, 2014

We have more than 10 domains on the same webspace, sharing the same document root. When we try to add a new domain on the same web space (sharing the same document root) Plesk takes a long time to create it (about 10 minutes). While domain creation, all the other domains sharing the same document root and web space get an authentication error. When Plesk finishes, all domains work again.

Are Chained Root Ssl Certificates More Secure Than Single Root?

Nov 25, 2008

I have read that although chained root ssl certificates can be more difficult to install they are actually more secure since the root certificate cannot be compromised, only the intermediary.

Is this true? It looks like both google and amazon both use chained SGC certs.

FTP As Root

Jul 13, 2008

I just recently had someone from this forum install CentOS for me with ISPconfig and required modules to successfully run PHPmotion. However, the only FTP I can access are the ones I create FTP for in ISPconfig, such as web1_admin, web1_testuser, etc.

When installing a CentOS server with ISPconfig, isn't there a root to log into the FTP?

With the FTP accounts that I have, I cannot access public and home directory such as /var/www directories.

Is there suppose to be an account for FTP so I can succcessfully overlook the whole server?

I want to take a look at all the websites I have such as /var/www/, /var/www/, etc. all through FTP. However, I cannot do this. It's almost like I have no Admin power over my server.

He did not provide me with a root FTP account or any super admin FTP account. I am not sure if something suspicious is going on or not. Please help. I do not want to get hacked in and stolen files.

Root SSL Certificate

Feb 11, 2007

I have a VPS and have a problem regarding the SSL certificate cPanel uses for secure connections (webmail, WHM etc..) my original hostname was set to but then I changed it to another name. However on the SSL certificate it states the old hostname, which I have been told is a bit of a pain. I wondered if there was anyway to change the common name, maybe by editing the certificate on the server?
