View Full Version : General question about DNS

09-19-2003, 11:51 AM
I have a client on another webhost (they had one when I started with them) and this host is telling me that they can only support one domain name per account.

How is this possible?

I thought that it was just a matter of adding a new record to the DNS so that the additional domain points to the same directory/server/IP as our current domain, much like the .forward file for email aliases.

Am I mistaken?

They are telling me to open another hosting account for the additional domain and then redirecting the home page to the current account. I think NOT.

Suggest you move them over to Westhost then...

That would be my next step if they don't offer me another option.

The only thing that is holding me back is the Traffic.

They offer a package with 1GB storage 25GB traffic $24.95/mo

For WestHost, it's 1 GB store 16 GB traffic $27.95/mo

I can't say for sure how much traffic they will get, but I did have a client leave WestHost because they ran into traffic issues.

We'll see what they say...I can't figure out technically why they could only have one domain per account.
