Posted by Joe Rebis (Import) on 17 September 2006 12:38 AM

 

All EPhost web hosting packages include the ability to host multiple domains. Based on your Windows hosting package, you can setup between 2-12 completely independent websites.

 

To add a new website on your Windows Hosting Plan:

  1. Login to your account.
  2. Click the green 'Control Panel' button
  3. In the 'Hosting Spaces Window', Click on the WEB ICON
  4. Click 'Create Website'
  5. Choose the Domain you would like to create website from the drop down list
  6. Click 'Create Web Site'

 

The system will automatically setup your domain based and allocate resources, like email, based on your web hosting package. To access the web site be sure to click on the domain from the list (Step 6) and see the FTP section and/or setup a Temporary URL. You may also want to visit the Website Settings or Advanced Website Settings sections.

 

Lastly, you will need to point the domain to EPhost. If you chose, Register the Domain or Transfer the domain registration- you will not need to take this step as the system will do it for you.

 

NOTE: WINDOWS or LINUX - domain transfers can take up to 5 days. Domain registrations will be processed within 10 minutes unless payment is due on the account.

 

To add a new website on your Linux Hosting Plan:

  1. Login to your account.
  2. Click the green 'Control Panel' button
  3. In the "Domains" Section, click 'Addon Domains'
  4. Fill out the "New Domain Name", the "subdomain" and "Document Root" will be created with defaults
    1. OPTION - you may 'check' the "Create an FTP account" if you need this feature with the new domain
  5. Click the blue 'Add Domain' button

You can of course over ride the "Subdomain" and "Document Root"

Lastly, VERIFY that the DNS Record was also added during the Domain Creation in the "Zone Editor"
