Virtual Subhosting is one of the most powerful features of the
Virtual Server and our Apache Web Server.
This feature allows you to support multiple domain names that each
resolve to their own unique subdirectories on a single
Virtual Server. In other words, you can host bob.com and
jim.com on the same Virtual Server, each with its own
domain name and unique site content. You can also offer each
Virtual Subhost customer their own unique FTP login with access to
their own subdirectory and e-mail addresses using their own domain
When used correctly, Virtual Subhosting offers you a powerful,
low-cost product that you can use to get your "foot in the door" with
prospective clients. You can use Virtual Subhosting to provide clients with
a small sample site for $10 to $20 per month, later upgrading them to
their own full Virtual Server as their needs expand.
For performance reasons, we have established guidelines
with regard to the number of Virtual Subhosts you should place on a single
Virtual Server. Keep in mind that these guidelines are suggested
so that the performance of your own Virtual Server and Virtual Subhost domains
is not compromised.
For more information, see the following.
Configuring Virtual Subhosts
need not be a daunting task. There are several methods you can use to do it. A utility that
automates Virtual Subhost configuration can be
easier, faster, and more user-friendly. If you require more flexibility to fine tune the setup
to your exact needs, then you should configure your Virtual Subhosts by hand.
The vaddhost utility is an interactive, command-line program that automates the process of
configuring Virtual Subhosts.
Manually Configuring Virtual Subhosts
It is possible to configure Virtual Subhosts by hand. These instructions include
directions for setting up cgi-bin access, separate web server log files, and other
