Hi,

I have a question regarding web hosting , i would like to know if it's possible to buy a domain and webspace, and put multiple domains in that space (no subdomains).

Dont know if i explained it that well....

Buy space for 1 website and use it for multiple websites with different domain names.

Thanks

Yes, they are usually called "Add-on" domains.

Alot of web hosts offer multiple domain hosting on one account. Just ask them if they do before you sign up.

Have a look at http://www.hosting-unlimited.net/multi-10.php

They're based in the UK with US servers, and their MultiDomain-10 account gives you decent space and bandwidth specs for use with up to 10 domains.

Prices currently £9.95 per month or £24.95 per quarter (no VAT to add as they're not VAT registered).

Have been with them for about 4 months now and I'm pleased. They even have a 1 hour support response policy.

Very possible. When u sign up for account with multiple domains, u'' have acces to panel, where u choose which domain links to which folder. All u need to do then is create multiple websites and put them in different folders , which u assigned before.

You don't need a reseller account, although it may make it easier for you. You just need a host that allows add-on domains.

I use 1&1 hosting. You can add on additional domains for $5.99 a year and sometimes they discount it to $2.99 and with 2GB of space, SQL, and other nice attributes it is well worth it to me.

http://www.1and1.com is one of the best I'd say. I'm planning on using this one. Very easy to maintain (the price is not the cheapest one though, but service is greate). $2.99 is for name.us domains only.

Yeah It is easy. I use dreamhost.com and simplyhosting.net . They both offer reselling capabilities, scripting, and ssh login.

Add-On Domains is distinctly different then true multiple domain hosting. I believe "Add On" Domains is CPanel's multiple domain solution.

However, if you require to manage each domain individually within 1 hosting account - then take a look at hosts that offer the following control panels:

Ensim, Helm (I believe) and H-Sphere.

Hope this helps...

cPanel also has WHM (Web Host Manager) which is provided by hosting companies for multi account admin: http://www.cpanel.net/

Hi David,

I am quite familiar with WHM - however, and I apologize, Im not here to debate the validity or superiority of 1 CP over another - However, adding folders to a public_html directory is not indicative of multiple domain hosting - it is a "makeshift" solution...

CPanel is a wonderful control panel, with lots of features - I am quite a fan of it - however, with respect to the requirements of the OP, I do not think it is best suited for, nor designed for multiple domain virtual hosting.

Thanks

Hi Andrew

The adding of folders to a public_html directory is what addon domains do. The WHM is entirely different and actually deals with seperate hosting accounts and domains, enabling administration of disk space, bandwidth, databases, email accounts etc.

See here: http://www.cpanel.net/features-whm.html

For instance, I have setup different hosting accounts for my customers using WHM, and one of those customers uses his cPanel for three addon domains.

hmmmm

Maybe this is a good thread to read:

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/archive/t ... 481-1.html

WHM improves the Add-On domain functionality - but again, its still just a makeshift solution....

Either way - appreciated the discussion - Any time I learn something new, its a good experience - and I did learn something about WHM I didnt know :)

Hi Andrew

I'm certainly not in the know on these things - just know what WHM and cPanel let me do.

Why do you say WHM is a makeshift solution? Seems to be setup specifically to do what it does, and, as mentioned before, the addon domain feature is in cPanel - not the higher level WHM...

Would be grateful if you could explain.

Hi David,

It all comes down to the way each specific Control Panel is designed to function (in my opinion).

CPanel was not created with multiple domain hosting in mind - and "Add-On" domains was created to try and address this market demand. However, it pretty much failed (which is when, as a provider, I left CPanel). WHM, by definition is an Add-On to CPanel is an attempt to add core functionality to a system that is not designed for it. As such, I would view this as a make shift solution, vs core, engineered for functionality. Normal, everyday users may or may not notice the differences - but, when it comes time for migration, expansion, bug fixing, stabilization, etc... the differences become quite apparent.. Any end user who has had to reconfigure accounts without any understanding of why FTP accounts, domain settings, etc have been reset or disappeared have experienced this very difference...

Again, this is all just my opinion from my experiences
