I have a 2 different websites i was hoping to host off of my server and i was wondering how to split up the server space so that i could have one account accessible to me for one site and another used for the other.
Is it even possible?
You can host mutiple sites without splitting space. if you own domains Just click addon domains in cpanel and you can add them.or else you can set up sub domains.
U can use your Add-On domain name in your Cpanel.
When you use "addon domain" in cpanel a few interesting things happen. Say you try to add "perceptionisnotasynonymfortruth.info"
Cpanel will want you to provide:
So for our example that's
You'll then upload your content for that domain to
or from your FTP client to:
Cpanel will also create a sumdomain space with the same name as the above username:
This is likely done so you can access your files publically prior to DNS propogation since you're on a shared account without your own IP address.
There's no need to specifically allocate X megs to each domain. That'd be useful if you were a reseller and wanted to limit a clients resource consumption.
Does this help?
yes thank you that helps alot.
Now, here is the nex question i have.
How do i get my domain name to work with my frihost acount? i bought a seperate domain name, but when i set the name server, i get a 404 error. Its been about 72 hours since i did this, so it should be setup by now i would think.
ok thanks, tahts what i didnt do, i didnt set the domain name as a parked domain. Thanks alot.
You redirected your domain to some frihost.com subdomain. First of all, it is something.frihost.net and secondly, it is better not to redirect your domain at all. Making it an addon domain is enough.
when im in Cpanel i click addon domain
from there i type in the domain name i wish to add and then click save
after i save it i setup the redirection to it so that when they type in that domain name since its set to my nameserver it automatically is supposed to redirect to the directory specified in the redirect. It doesnt do that, it still gives me the 404 error...
lol, nvm i figured it out...was redirecting to the wrong domain name...man i feel dumb.
