Hosting 2 or more domains on one hosting account

Posted 05-02-2009 at 12:15 PM by Paul (TOLRA Micro Systems Limited Blog)

Some web hosting accounts allow you to host multiple domains names each with a completely independent website on it, the following attempts to clarify how to do that without allowing content from addon domains to be visible via the main account domain. It also attempts to show that once correctly configured there's no difference between many domains on one account and many accounts on one server.

cPanel

We'll start with the case of cPanel based hosting, the following...

Why backup multiple times per day?

Posted 02-02-2009 at 12:21 PM by Paul (TOLRA Micro Systems Limited Blog)

We are often asked why we provide multiple time per day backups for our web hosting clients when other hosts backup only once per day or maybe even only once per month.

In the modern internet websites are now often more than just a few simple pages that change now and then they are dynamic beasts that can take data from multiple sources including users and then change continuously to present this new data.

If we use the music social network site On The Barrier (1) as...

Moving your site to a new server with minimum downtime

Note: This method does assume that your current host provides sufficient access to edit your DNS zone, or your new host can take on the nameserver roll before starting to host the actual data.

Within the domains zone each entry will have...

What are subdomains?

Posted 31-01-2009 at 11:21 AM by Paul (TOLRA Micro Systems Limited Blog)

If we take the domain tolranet.com as an example, then forums.tolranet.com is a subdomain of tolranet.com as is support.tolranet.com and status.tolranet.com.

A subdomain is simply a lower domain within the domain name hierarchy. Therefore tolranet is also a subdomain of the toplevel domain (TLD) com.

A subdomain can point to the same server as the parent domain or a separate server but in both cases it is normal for the content on the subdomain to be independent from...

What are Addon Domains?

Posted 30-01-2009 at 07:28 PM by Paul (TOLRA Micro Systems Limited Blog)
Tags addon, domains

When you sign up for a hosting account you get a single account which functions for the domain you gave during the sign up process.

If you then use an addon domain you can make the account serve data for an additional domain name as well as the original domain. The addon domain takes it's data from a different folder to the main domain which allows you to have different content for each unlike parked domains which share the same content.

With your hosting account you...
