I have this issue. I'm not buying any hosting plans. I only bought a Domain name. The provider where I bought domain name is http://www.1and1.com. I have Linux on my computer and I use it for website. So I got the part to forward domain name to my IP in cpanel. What I don't get is, when I forward domain name to one of my folders (eg http://***.***.***.***/folder) then linking doesn't work right. What I mean is it loads ok to the main page, eg http://www.mainpage.com. But when I click to any link, the address in address bar doesn't change. It goes to the page I clicked, but the address doesn't change. And when I press refresh it returns to the main page. When I forward just to my IP it works fine. I just want to make a few websites with different names, and forward them to different folders in my server. Is there way to do it?

I don't know much about Cpanel as we use Plesk - but it sounds like you have set up framed forwarding which means that your website content appears in a frameset, in Plesk you switch it to Physical Hosting - although I am not sure what this option is called in Cpanel.

This is something separate, I think, and for that you want Apache's Virtual Hosting.

I don't quite get it. Are you saying you serve the files from your Linux box and CPanel is installed on that box? If it isn't what you mean and it is actually 1and1.com whos server the CPanel is on, you should probably have them change the A record on your domain name in the DNS zone file to point to your home IP.

Are you trying to host on a home computer? Why not just get an account at 1&1?

SOunds like your DNS is not correct.
