A quick question on changing admin users/domains

vps

#1

This is a bit unclear to me, so I’m confirming. When I edit the user that a domain is mapped to, the site is then hosted on the virtual machine that user/admin is assigned to.

I’ve wanted to rearrange where things are hosted to better organize my domain, but never shuffled admin users about, but am merely confirming I’m correct. A bit of pre-emptive paranoia.

(Too used to working on non-virtual machines I suppose).


#2

Correct. Your user has a folder on a virtual machine. “Mapping” a domain to that user basically creates a sub-folder for that domain.
You can use the same user account for several domains, which can make life easier for many things.


#3

Thanks for the clarification. So basically that’ll let me distribute my sites to new VPSes pretty easily and in a nicely owner-targeted manner.


#4

Correct. When you are creating the new user, you should have a drop-down to choose which VPS or Hosting plan that user will be on.
Then when setting up the domain you choose which user that domain will be on.

So: VPS> User(s)> Domain(s)
