Mapping Subdomains To Different VPS's

Dec 11, 2008

I was wondering if it is possible to host subdomains on different VPS's? Here is what I am trying to do -> Hosted on VPS0
- -> Hosted on VPS1
- -> Hosted on VPS2

VPS0, VPS1, VPS2 have different IP addresses.

I tried using A records to point subdomains to different VPS but VPS requires a "primary domain" looks like. Do let me know if this is possible. I tried google but not sure what exactly I shoudl be searching for.

Wildcard DNS Subdomains Working, But Existing Subdomains Not

May 7, 2007

I've set up the affiliate manager from for a client of mine. This includes the setup of wildcard DNS so that each affiliate can have and have it count their clicks - which works properly.

What isn't working properly is that he also has, which is loading the main website page instead of his forums. He is using cpanel to add the subdomain, and it isn't failing, so I'm not sure what's going on with it.

Here is the relative section from the httpd file.


ServerAlias *
DocumentRoot /home/residual/public_html
BytesLog domlogs/

User residual
Group residual
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/residual/public_html/cgi-bin/

DocumentRoot /home/residual/public_html/forums
BytesLog domlogs/

User residual
Group residual
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/residual/public_html/forums/cgi-bin/

And the bind file for his domain

Domain Mapping ..

Dec 24, 2008

I have a new domain for an online store which I am trying to map to a certain web server(launchsplash_com) for just their Launch Page to show up as homepage when my website is accessed (the ecommerce software has its own default homepage, which I prefer not to show up). The registrar for the domain is Godaddy but hosting is done with a different company - Server Intellect.

The issue is mapping my domain to Launchsplash's server does not seem to work. And I am not sure if I am doing the right settings through the host control panel. As per LaunchSplash company's instruction - I create a CNAME record name - www_mydomainname_com and CNAME record data - mydomainname_LaunchSplash_com

Since the domain is not being hosted with Godaddy, the total dns control for making dns changes is disabled in godaddy control panel.

I do not wish to do the forwarding option, since that shows up the forwarded domain name.

Is Domain Mapping Good Or Bad?

Apr 9, 2009

If you want to use several domains for your single website, from SEO-reasons or from any other reasons (which?) is it better to forward your domain to that sub-domain or should it be mapped in the DNS in CNAME? =

It's not the same issue like with Google Apps, whether you should use your own domain, e.g. or whether you should use the domain offered by Google for your Sites. The reason is that is a part of the single website called, thus, it is not an external website hosted somewhere else.

Domain Mapping Clarification

Jun 19, 2009

i currently have a site on a domain. my client would like the "main" domain to be .com instead. I should add that BOTH .com and will be used.

The company is advertising itself as, so people will associate the business with, not

I have both domains, and I understand domain mapping is used for this purpose, but before I go and screw up anything, could someone please clarify.

Is it possible to "domain map" so that visitors go to, they will see the website as .com, but the site itself will actually be on the "" server.

I don't particuarly want to transfer the site from the to the .com and set up a redirect.

I know I could use a redirect .com to, but the client specifically wants ".com" to be the site visitors view. (they bought and set the site up first, just to be annoying)

Mapping User Paths

Nov 1, 2006

I'm not even sure I'm asking this in the right place, but here we go.

We are working on creating some load tests for our system and we need to figure out how a "normal" user navigates our system.

Is there software out there that will show use how a user navigates our system via reading the apache logs? Will awstats do the trick?

Mapping An External Domain To A Subdomain?

I have a website where users can sign up and create a site. They can access their website by typing

However, I would like to add to this the ability to buy a domain name and point it to

so would translate to (external domain and associated user are mapped in the database)

Do I need my own DNS server for this or is there a simpler solution? Also, how should the database lookup be performed for this to work?

Remote Web Folder Mapping Technology - Does It Exist?

Mar 20, 2009

Currently my companies global website “” is hosted in a shared hosted environment, our own U.S. website “” is hosted at our datacenter.

Here is my question, we have a redesign project. My goal is to lose the “” sub-domain and move our new U.S. site under the "" domain using a “/us/” folder delineation.

Is it possible with modern web server technology to setup a something like virtual directory/folder, redirect, alias or remote mapping of the “/us/” folder that points to a separate server hosting our U.S. site outside of shared hosting environment for our "" site, e.g.?

•<global website content/structure > - Hosted at in a shared environment on Web App Server running Coldfusion
•<U.S. website content/structure> - Hosted at our datacenter on Web App Server running IBM WebSphere

Unfortunately I cannot merge the two sites together based on the web server technology and lack of budget/resources to accomplish.

Linux Server: Mapping Ftp Account As A Drive

Apr 9, 2007

any idea if this is possible? basically what i'd like to do is make a "virtual folder" in my linux box that is actually a connection to an ftp account on another server.

so for e.g. if i say cd /myftp it'll show the contents of that directory as though it was a standard folder, however it is actually connecting to some other machine via ftp?

Apache :: Domain Mapping That Don't Involve Wordpress?

May 6, 2015

I used to have a server which had domain mapping via wordpress... a friend of mine had this up for me and every time I added a new website to the same server/ip-address, I just modified the .htaccess for example:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}
RewriteCond $1 !^domain
RewriteRule (.*) /domain/$1 [L]

Anyway, I no longer have this server and as a result, I have websites that are not being mapped correctly, many domains point to the same ip address.

I have tried to use name-based virtual hosts but it seems as if this is being ignored... I did restart Apache by sudo service apache2 restart

I'd really like to get my websites working again without buying multiple ip-addresses.

Apache :: Network Hard Drive Mapping

Apr 2, 2014

So I have question regarding apache on windows and hard drives.

I have a virtual rack what i connected all my servers upto, Then I mapped all my servers hard drives together so they can all communicate and share data from each other.

But I have apache installed on 1 server hard drive C:/

Can I run apache from that mapped hard drive on the other servers ? Or would that cause problems ?

Also they are all windows 2008 running the latest apache from here.

Shared Hosting Supporting Wildcard Request Mapping On IIS

May 22, 2007

I need a shared host account that can support wildcard mapping of all HTTP requests through the ASP.NET engine. This is required in order to fully support the UrlRewriting techniques I want to use. Anyone know of any affordable hosts that can support this? Of course, as my site grows I'll consider upgrading to a VPS (and further depending on the growth).

WHM Subdomains And DNS

Nov 8, 2009

I'm setting up an auto-configuration script to setup accounts in WHM and create subdomains and so far everything is working fine!

But we have a problem - when an account is setup and the subdomain is not working yet when a customer visits it he gets wrong dns information and then when the domain starts working it's not working for him.

I know that flushdns solves this issue under Windows but I don't want to make my newbie customers run complicated commands.

Will a 5 minut delay solve this issue from the moment the account is created to the moment the customer visists the site?

SSL And Subdomains

Apr 27, 2008

I have a question about SSL certificates and how they function with subdomains.

Right now we have [url]. This subdomain houses our client management tool.

We wanted to use an SSL cert on the above domain so I purchased a wildcard SSL. * SSL was ordered and setup.

However, now when we enter[url]we're seeing the content from, not

I understand we could use [url]but isn't the point of the wildcard SSL so I can do what I want... access [url]?

This is a cPanel/WHM setup.

SSL And Subdomains

Jan 30, 2007

I have googled high and low and i'm about to explode. This has been an issue for the last 4 days...

I have

I bought a SSL cert for

I installed the cert

[url] shows the right content

[url]shows the content for [url]
I've had this working before on site5, but I share a dedicated account now with WHM/cPanel and it's not working.

it's like the subdomain is being ignored.
Tll me if i'm wrong, but each SSL needs its own IP correct? i added an IP for and WHM seems to have set it for all the subdomains as well.

I purchased a dedicated server several days ago, and realize that this will be a learning curve for me since I'm not experienced in server management.

I have a quick question about subdomains.

My domain names have resolved (or are still resolving). I created two subdomains on a domain, but I can't access them. I'm not sure if there is anything else I should do to get these subdomains to work.

I'm using Plesk8.1

My domains are registered at GoDaddy (and some at RegisterFly)

if I can provide you with any information such as my DNS template, etc...

I know this question has been asked loads of times, but I don't seem to be able to find the answer I'm looking for.

I'm looking to host the forum part of my site on another server. The main part of my site is on a shared hosting account. Which is fine. I'm adding a forum to the site, and was planning on hosting this on my VPS account as a subdomain. As my shared hosting package is only small.

I've edited the DNS with my domain registration provider and added a A record for pointing to the ip of my VPS account. I then created a account on my VPS for the domain/subdomain. However I don't seem to be able to get the subdomain to work

Do I need to ask my shared hosting provider to do anything? or do I need to edit anything on my VPS? The subdomain doesn't appear to be resolving.

Subdomains With Different Passwords

Jun 16, 2008

I'm planning on buying my first domain in order to host various sites of mine in one place. I like the idea of subdomains to separate them, but I was wondering... Is it possible to access different subdomains using different passwords? I'm planning to let a friend of mine use a subdomain to host a site of hers that's related to mine, and I'd like it if she had the security of a different password. I just want to know if I can even do this, and if so, what hosts offer this option?

.htaccess Subdomains

Jul 13, 2008

to have redirect to

to do this, I have:

1) created a DNS record at my hosting company, * and it works, any made-up subdomain correctly points to my server.

2) using Plesk, I created a DNS record, *

3) in an .htaccess file, I put:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ([^.]+) [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [L,R]
... but the thing doesn't work, I keep getting the server's default page:

This is the Control Panel default page

If you see this page it means:

1) hosting for this domain is not configured


2) there's no such domain registered in Control Panel.

Cpanel / Whm And SSL's On Subdomains

Mar 9, 2007

I have recently run into the need to setup subdomains on one of my site's with their own SSL certificate. Cpanel only allows one SSL per domain.

Does anyone have experience or a recommendation on how to setup a subdomain with it's own SSL.

My thought is to setup a separate hosting account for the subdomain. i did this in plesk a few times successfully, and in theory it should also work in cpanel. With the separate account, i can install a separate cert and the problem is fixed, but I'm not sure if it will work.
