View Full Version : domains

In some of the larger hosting packages it says you can have multiple domains, and have them point to different directories. Does this just mean you can have multiple URLs all pointing to your site, albeit different directories, or can you have multiple websites on one account, with different domain names?

The later you can point more then one domain name to the account.

The other domains can act as an alias. So you can have the additional domains point to the original domain. You can also have the other domain names act as different websites. Having other domains in an account allows you to have multiple websites that operate separate of your original with a few exceptions. E-mail is shared for all domains on a single VPS (if you set up joe@domain1.com, then joe@domain2.com is automatically captured and dropped in the same mailbox), Miva Merchant is shared (if you use it), stats are shared, and you only have a single Site Manager to manage all accounts.

But presumably the email could be sorted using procmail???

I am told that it may be possible, but we don't provide any support for procmail, so you would have to figure out how to do it yourself.

I've already made a post detailing how to do something like this: http://forums.westhost.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=7258#7258
