Hi guys,

This may be a stupid question but can you use the one domain name and point it at several webhosts. I have used up the space on one account and was wondering if I could use the space left on another account.

Cheers in advance.

You can get another host on the same domain.
In other words, in DNS you can have www IN A <IP> (of your current site)
and alt IN A <IP> (of second host)

Then, you have to reference content in your main site, to your secondary site either directly (in context) or indirectly (via proxy pass or redirect). Either way, it is painfully simple.

Though, would it not be easier to buy more space?
