Addon domains


#1

I’m in the process of moving here from another loony host, but haven’t quite got the hang of your forums so I’m hoping this is in the right place.

Question I’ve go is in my old host , it would be root/http/Maindomain/Addondomains.

is it the same here or is it more
root/MainDomain
root/Addondomain
root/second addon domain

?

Make sure you add additional domains and subdomains through the control panel, and not just by creating folders in FTP.

It is more like you indicated above, with the actual path on DreamHost being:

/home/user/ (which is where you connect via FTP/SFTP)
/home user/MainDomain
/home/user/Addondomain
/home/user/second_addon_domain

Note that one DreamHost you can have multiple users at no additional cost, so you could choose to establish additional users, at which point your structure would be like this:

/home/youruser/ (which is where you connect via FTP/SFTP)
/home/youruser/MainDomain
/home/youruser/Addondomain
/home/youruser/second_addon_domain

and

/home/anotheruser/ (which is where another user connects via FTP/SFTP)
/home/anotheruser/MainDomain
/home/anotheruser/AnotherDomain
/home/anotheruser/andAnotherDomain

and so on, and so forth, “scooby-dooby-doo”! :slight_smile:

Indeed! I was pretty happy answering a “chip shot” question that wasn’t likely to degenerate into something where I’d be in over my head. :slight_smile:

BTW for the pedantic: Yes, I do assume that the OP meant “user home directory” when he said “root”. :slight_smile:

Sweet, I like that layout much better.

I never did like the idea that visitors might stumble across other add on domains by going to the maindomain/addondomain.

This is much nicer.
I think I’m going to like it here.

Ha ha ha! Nice one! I’m sure the OP knew what you meant. :slight_smile:

"Main Entry: pe·dan·tic
Pronunciation: pi-'dan-tik
Function: adjective
1 : of, relating to, or being a pedant
2 : narrowly, stodgily, and often ostentatiously learned
3 : UNIMAGINATIVE, PEDESTRIAN "

Oh, man … I gotta work on that! :frowning:

Don’t worry, you’re not pedantic. Well, maybe #1, but not #3. :slight_smile:

Actually, I was pretty impressed with your use of sympathy vs. empathy with a post a while back…
