I just tried westhost. Very nice folks, good reviews, worth a shot. I signed up for a regular hosting account that allows multiple domains. That didn't work for email. An email user has access to email under that users name for all domains attached to the account. so you can't have email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc. One info@ per account. I did find a hack for it, but it wouldn't work with web mail.
So now I need to find a host that separates mail by domain WITH webmail.
This is getting so tiresome. I have a VPS with "the planet", but so many things just don't work out of the box. I've been fighting with them about PHP not sending mail for months. DNS problems everytime I setup a new domain. There has to be an easier way!
15 domains, everything needs to work. I don't want to manage anything. No resellers. The company I host with will own the data center.
I have two domains as virtual hosts on same IP address.
I am getting certificate error for the second domain when I try to check email (using MS Outlook). I can't permanently "accept" certificate, it complains again and again. Certuficate I created and self signed for imap.domain1.com, but the second email server is imap.domain2.com, so it complains.
How do I set separate email certificates for two domains? Is it possible at all?
I currently have one server with multiple domains on it. I run apache with virtual hosts.
I want to setup email forwarding such that:
Email sent to <anyone>@aaaa.com ----forwards to----> <some email address> Email sent to <anyone>@bbbb.com ----forwards to----> <some email address> ... Email sent to <anyone>@xxxxx.com ----forwards to----> <some email address>
Any pointers? Im not even sure what to search for on the net.
i recently purchased my first vps from netdepot and want to transfer my 2 web forums from shared hosting. So what is the best and easy way to do this. I got the control panel Lxadmin and also webmin. I Switch Programed to apache and bind because i know little bit about them.
I run several sites and am wanting to setup several more. Currently I have two shared plans, but I don't like how the add-on domains are affected by the main domain (e.g. addon.main.com on 4## and 5## pages).
Is going reseller the easiest way for me to have these domains not affected by each other (a separate cpanel each)?
Finally, I don't use a lot of resources so are there actually reseller plans out there with lower prices (and lower resources too).
I have a little question that I'm sure somebody more knowledgeable can answer. I had a hosting account with GoDaddy that just hosted my web site only. I had a few clients need hosting at the same time so I looked into upgrading my account to one that would host multiple domains. (this is my first time with multiple clients, can you tell?) I thought perfect! I can host all of my clients accounts from this one hosting account. I thought there would be multiple account interfaces to support this.
So when I get in there, it lets me add one of the domains I was working on and then I went to upload the files and apparently I had to upload the file to a directory off of my site. So newsite.com points to mysite.com/newsite.
I uploaded it just to test it out and when you go to newsite.com it shows in the address bar as newsite.com, not mysite.com/newsite, even though that is the directory path. I'm sure there's a name for this but I have no idea what it is so I wanted to explain my issue clearly.
So, I'm wondering, is this kosher? Is this bad to do or do a lot of people do this and will it affect my site? From what I've gathered so far, people only do this when they have multiple domains pointing to the same site, or am I wrong?
I'm about to the point where I am ready to host my website. I already have a domain but no hosting plan. In the future I may want to have several different websites each with their own unique domain. I was wondering if I choose a hosting plan for one site, can I use the unused web space for additional domains/websites?
I run a small web development company and we purchase hosting on behalf of our customers through 1and1.
We recently started renting a VPS through them that claims it can handle up to 100 individual domains, but we have been having problems. Most of the sites are 7-8 pages of content, a few all flash, and some with flash headers.
We have approx 20 domains currently running on this VPS but the sites are down a lot or take forever to load (5 minutes).
I am setting up a server with multiple domains on windows 2008. I am using mail server and I am looking at putting webmail on it. I would like to have people access www.domain.com/mail and get to the webmail interface. Would I use virtual directories for this?
i just had a simple question about wether there is any difference between getting a VPS plan (like that from jumpline) and a shared plan (like that from hostgator) for the purposes of hosting multiple domains.
It seems that for vps I have to create a "subdirectory" to create a new account for domain name. Plus the emails are all the same (so for example if I create email@example.com and I have domain2.com registerd, firstname.lastname@example.org will also work with the same username password).
On the shared side of things - I also do not get a very high level of isolation. Not like with reseller WHM package anyways. BUT the resellers lack the basic ssh access (at least the most favourables I looked at).
So i was wandering if anyone out there who is doing small-time part work and sells personal/business websites to clients knows which way is it better to go.
To get a VPS account and keep on creating subdirectories for each separate client (and hope they don't use the "other" domain names in the emails) OR get the shared account that allows unlimited domans OR something else.
I also forgot to mention that my budget does not extend beyond $20/month.
I wanted to host multiple domains on the same hosting a/c and so I bought GoDaddy's economy hosting which supported multiple domains. But now when I try to add multiple domains, it displays this message -
"The domain path cannot be modified for economy hosting accounts."
That means all domains point to the same folder/content which is not what I wanted. So is there way to put a .htacess file or make an index.php file which can read where the request comes from and automatically redirect them to appropriate folders???
I have 3 ips to be used, I have used 2 for the nameserver in registrar.
I have total of 3 ips, which means, I have to place my domains via dns template to the server. Actually, I have set all my domains to a single ip, leaving the 2 ip's which I used for the nameserver to be empty (doin nothin :p)
SO, can I use 3 ips, for the 3 sites, ip1 for site1, ip2 for site2, and ip3 for site3 ? Will this make any difference in the site load and time?
I am sure they have to b set up with dns templates which I can do Wanted to know what would be the end result of my query
I have a client that has multiple domains, is there a way of pointing multiple domains to one server? Right now, their site is on their old server, and I was wondering how they configured it? So if you type in www.mysite.com or www.mysite2.com, each show the respective domain. (i.e. www.mysite.com/aboutus.htm is the same as www.mysite2.com/aboutus.htm) I have a (DV) with (mt). I created a cname to point to www.mysite.com (where the actual NS are pointing to) is this correct?
I am completely new to apache and I had the load balancer set up for a single domain that was working perfectly fine, but when it came to multiple domains i couldn't, for the life of me, figure out what to do.
There is example.com sub.example.com and otherexample.com
I had a single node set up for this but I want to experiment with the balancer. I have scratched Google and I only found broken info which couldn't explain much to me. Here are my domains
sitea.com was pointing to /home/me/public_html/sitea
siteb.com was pointing to /home/me/public_html/siteb
On my new server, I have root permissions and used Plesk to create two domains sitea.com and siteb.com . Now plesk asks for a user to be created for each domain, so created usera and userb for sitea and siteb respectively.
Now as root on my server I created the dir /home/me/ and untarred the whole backup from old server to new server and I have dirs :
/home/me/public_html/sitea and /home/me/public_html/siteb
In apache configuration in file: httpd.include_sitea under dir /var/www/vhosts/sitea.com/conf/httpd.include
I changed the document root to /home/me/public_html/sitea
So I thought I am all set. But it does not work. When I try sitea.com in the browser it works but for all subdirs, for eg sitea.com/images it says Access denied.
This is because the dirs I created are owned by root.
So the owner of /home/me/public_html/sitea needs to be usera for this to work ?
Again for siteb to work I need to change the owner of /home/me/public_html/siteb to userb ?
This will be painful ? At least I should be able to change the owner of /home/me/public_html/ to one owner and ensure all sites under that work fine. How do I do that ?
I think the problem is clear by now. Its that I want all my sites to work off from .../public_html/ sub dirs.
The VPS has 16 domains running on it, all with different web addresses and their own email accounts etc.
It's a Linux server and is running postfix for the mail. The main website on this domain has the mail service disabled because we have an exchange service on our own server here in the building where we work. Now when anyone on any of our domains on the VPS try to email us at 'maincompany.com' they get the following error message:
This is the mail system at host <vps address>.
