Setting Up Domain Forwarding?

Dec 26, 2005

I've taken a reseller account from ResellerZOOM which came with WHM/cPanel. I've my own private nameservers(meaning I got my own IP). I've a domain that I want to be forwarded to my blog, just like domain registrars offer domain forwarding but the registrar I registered my domain with doesn't give domain forwarding. so I was thinking that maybe I can point the domain to my nameservers & then have it forwarded to my blog. The thing is that I haven't used WHM before & I don't know how to do it, create some DNS zone maybe!!

The only way I know is to create an account for that domain, allot it some diskspace & then redirect via .htaccess file, which would be overkill IMHO. I know it can be done without creating an account, some other way.

Setting Up Domain With Lighthttpd

Jun 9, 2009

its been long time since I have set one and its been really bugging with the feather theme interface, which I haven't used before

now, here is the pt.

I have 3 ips , I want the main ip to be unique
i.e assuming .2, .3 and .4 are the the ips we have ben provided with, where .2 is the main ip of the server (lxadmin)

now, in the dns template, I have 6 options where ip has to be assigned, as -
base, cp, mail, ns, ns1, ns2

I have set the base,cp, mail, ips to .3

I don't have a clue on what to set for the ns, ns1, ns2

I want .3 to be shown as the pinged ip when site is pinged.

We have set .3 and .4 as the nameserver ips in the registrar, so do I need to provide .3 as the ns1 ip and .4 as the ns2 ips or both the ips have to be .3
and what should be the ns ip?

DNS And Domain- Setting Up DNS With DirectAdmin

Jul 23, 2009

I've got DirectAdmin installed, and my domain name ( hosted with

I'm wondering how I set up my DNS so that whenever I point more domains to my VPS their DNS will be set to and

Would it be as simple as pointing my domain to my VPS IP, then setting up this in DirectAdmin?:

Add Zone
Domain Name:
IP Address:
Name Server 1:
Name Server 2:

Would I enter:
Add Zone
Domain Name:
IP Address:
Name Server 1:
Name Server 2:

Then point my domain to, and set it up my domain at like so:

Add New Child Name Server
Host Name:
Ip Address:


Add New Child Name Server
Host Name:
Ip Address:

Would this work? I'm looking to do a quick shift from my old CPS (LXAdmin) to my new VPS (DirectAdmin) with at little downtime as possible. Do I need to set up any other records for the domain for my email accounts to work, or would DirectAdmin take care of all this?

Setting Up A Main Domain And Nameservers

Apr 24, 2009

I have recently just purchased an unmanaged vps from poundhost. I have never used a vps before so we shelled out for a WHM control panel! The issue now is that we do not have a nameserver set up or any main domain to use as a nameserver.

We have the main IP address and two additional IP's given to us by poundhost, how do I use these to start hosting and managing websites?

Setting Up A Site In A .local Domain

Jun 10, 2008

I have a web server running Server 2003 and IIS6. I can access everything fine via IP. Now I want to have a domain name work with it.

The server is in a .local domain environment. Does anyone have any info on how I should setup DNS for the web server if the domain itself is not getting any DNS info from the outside?

Is it just a matter of adding new A and NS records or do I need to be in a FQDN domain for it to work?

Setting Up New Domain With Hosting Package

Jul 7, 2008

I ordered a domain from Name and a shared hosting package from Hawk Host. How do I set them up so they work together? I thought all I had to do was add the Hawk Host name servers to my Name account but that doesn't seem to be helping. I don't have any webpages up yet but I do have some files uploaded to be used as a redirect for a game server. The redirect isn't loading properly most of the time and when I type my domain name into a browser my directory won't show up either, just the parking page. I ordered both of these last week.

Domain Name Server (DNS) Redirection / Setting Up Zone(s)

Oct 24, 2007

I have a quick question about some DNS zones I'm trying to set up for a customer. I figured I would try asking the community before bugging our top-level admins (they have enough to do already, and I'd rather learn this myself).

We have a customer for whom we are managing their DNS. The site is actually hosted elsewhere, but the DNS originates on our server.

They have another site that is hosted with us, and they would like to set up a subdomain redirect from the remotely-hosted site to the site hosted on our hardware. So, the situation looks something like this: : hosted elsewhere (primary IP not ours), DNS with us : redirect this to

I could edit httpd.conf, but it would be easiest (for firewall reasons at the moment) if I could enter in the proper zones via WHM zone editor. I'll be able to see the results either way. I tried setting up the 'A' and 'CNAME' records, and I got as far as directing the 'A' records for the subdomain to the local IP, but I'm not sure how to finish it off (assuming I'm going down the right path). My own knowledge level in this regard is somewhere between novice and intermediate (which is why I have partners and admins ).

Setting Up Domain To Point And Mask To The Hosting Service

Apr 10, 2008

I have a domain name from godaddy and recently got a host plan in hostgator.

As this is the first time I use hosting, it is very confusing how to set it up properly.
So far what I figured out and was able to set is the DNS in godaddy and the add-on domain in hostgator.

So now I was able to point 'MyDomain' to direct to 'hostgatorDomain/MyFolder/' (names just for example).

The problem is that masking is not turned on and who ever clicks 'MyDomain' will get to the right location, but the address will change to 'hostgatorDomain/MyFolder/'.

How to do the set up so the URL will not change?

Apache :: Setting Up A Local Domain With Working Override

Feb 25, 2014

I'm trying to accomplish two goals: First, get "Pretty Links" to work on my local Wordpress instance; second, to set up a local domain for the site.I have a fresh install of Apache 2.4.6 running, and I'll I've done is enable the rewrite and vhost_alias mods. Nevertheless, here's my apache2.conf: URL....

I need to have AllowOverride set to All. This, I gather, allows .htaccess files within the subsequent directories to alter the apache config. To try one thing at a time, I'm accessing the site from localhost/var/www/dhae/Wordpress (foregoing the domain). I tried altering the 000-default.conf to oblige this: [URL] .... -- all I added was the <Directory> section. This didn't work, and neither did changing the AllowOverride to All in the apache2.conf.

I wondered if perhaps I needed something more specific to the directory, so I tried using my second goal to accomplish this. I wrote the dhae.conf: URL....

I've also added the following line to my HOSTS file:

This hasn't worked either. I've tried virtual host config stuff as much as I could find, and I'm just not having any luck. What I have even came from this site (URL....).

Don't Use Namecheap Webhosting

Mar 17, 2008

I've just received my second suspension from them, for having 5 visitors on my website, which was abuse of their resources.

I had issues with them last month, they claimed I was using too much resources and had to upgrade to Business class. I've paid for two years there as it is.

Every time I would get these notices, I'd work with them and it was found that one comment bot was hitting my site repeatedly (one post several times in a row which really shouldn't cause any problems anyway) and would cause things to raise. In their email, their support said:


Your account is unsuspended now. Please check and prevent future overloads.
Also we can block ip addresses of your referrals, when all connections is from one ip instead of suspending your account. Should we block and similar?

When I said yes, I was sent this reply:



IP blocked in our firewall. We'll act similar way, when your account will be leeched from one IP. Now this ticket is being closed.

So tonight, I redo a post, since their hotlink protection isn't stopping hits on the photo being linked to, which involved uploading an image and deleting the old, and shortly thereafter I get this:


Dear Customer,

We have suspended your account due to resource abuse. Please find the related information below:

| 306259 | username_wrdp2 | localhost | username_wrdp2 | Sleep | 50092 | | |

All of them supposedly me. But at any rate, only 5 users at namecheap can apparently bring about a suspension. I have never in my life had such treatment by a host. Most of the site is a static site, where most people land. And this is for less than 50 people on a daily basis.

They may have a good reputation as a domain reseller (yes, they're now ICANN registrars, but they haven't switched over yet, they're still reselling for Enom) but they had better rethink their webhosting.

People I know who have WordPress pages at places like Dreamhost, Lunarpages, all the rest have way more traffic than I do and yet they don't have these problems. I'm just sick at they way I've been treated there.

Whatever you do, don't host with namecheap. I'm truly sorry I did. And if anyone wants to verify that I host with them, it's, obviously a really exploitable site. It's about haunted lighthouses.

Anyone Using Namecheap Hosting

Nov 19, 2008

I signed up for namecheap hosting for 1 month just to check how good they are. I hosted my banners site over there {snip} and it is opening OK.

I was wondering who else is using their hosting from this forum?

I saw a thread on WebHostingTalk about namecheap hosting and the members who participated there are very satisfied with the hosting but when I asked about it on DP forum the members were just against of it. According to them Namecheap is good only for domains not for hosting.

Would you like to share your experience (if you have used namecheap hosting)?

Namecheap Hosting

Sep 2, 2008

I recently started using for shared hosting. It's only $3/month.

They have fairly fast download speeds (like if I download a big picture from my own website).

But their "processing" speed seems a little slow? I'm not sure, because this is new to me and I have nothing to compare it with. But if I look at a page that uses WordPress where the server is being asked to look up stuff from the SQL databases and form the html on the run, it seems to not be very responsive sometimes - to load the posts that have a certain category associated with it, it sometimes takes 3 seconds to load after clicking, sometimes 7 seconds. Not very scientific I know, and there's other factors, but just to give an idea.

For $3/month, I guess I shouldn't complain. But if I choose to give my readers (my parents and my one friend) a better browsing experience, would I get better response times by paying a bit more?

Anyone have experience with namecheap? I've also considered GoDaddy, but don't like their advertising strategy. Makes me feel like a high schooler.

I should also ask - how's the webmail service on other shared hosting companies? Namecheap's webmail is really really slow. Ok, $3/month isn't much, but the webmail is much slower than my website. Is that "normal"?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Setting Up Separate Mail Accounts For Domain Alias?

May 6, 2014

I've got a situation in which I need to have a set of mail accounts that share a domain name with a domain that's already in use as a domain alias and because the domain is already in use, I'm unable to create a new account using that domain. I tried explicitly adding "www" to the domain alias so I could keep the address as an alias and reserve the "" name for use as a separate account, but Plesk won't allow for that.

How to address this? The idea I'm currently considering is to delete the domain alias and then create the new account and manually set the DOCUMENT ROOT of the new account to refer to the other domain's document root. I'm sure this could create some difficulty in Plesk so I'm looking for input before trying it. I'm actually not even sure exactly where I would be able to redefine the document root with Plesk allowing the change and not overwriting it later.

If all else fails, I can setup a new account on a different and unrelated Plesk server, but I'd prefer not to do that.

They will reply me but I want to know your advices too about Namecheap. Is it good choice to host a VBulletin forum on shared hosting from Namecheap?

Or I should buy their Business Hosting Package?

I don't want to buy VPS or Dedicated Server because I don't have much knowledge of hosting and I have heard that VPS and Dedicated servers are very difficult to manage for person like me
