How to run multiple website's for clients
Submitted by tdog89 on Wed, 01/07/2009 - 15:43
I am wondering how to possible run mulitple websites from one ip address. I would like to run different websites for customers on my server. I seen your hosting panel and figured i would give it a shot. I am just wondering how could i do this and also how to restrict user's from resellers also. Basicly i want to run a server like godaddy for customer's with like cpanel but instead of cpanel your panel. Is it possible and if so is there a tut to show me how to. Thank you and good panel, would be better with out ad ons. I also plan on donating if all goes well with this panel.

Re: howto run multiple websites
first, i should say you that, a hosting control panel is made for multiple websites..
To host multiple websites of your own or of your customers,
just setup a Ubuntu or Debian Linux, then setup ehcp on it..
Then, buy/get a main domainname for your server, such as mymaindom.com,
redirect it to your server ip,
then setup new domains on your server, yourself or your resellers...
say Your customers your dns as: ns1.mymaindom.com and ip as ip of your server, or ip of your router/modem if you are behind a router/modem..
this way, you will be able to host many domains in a server.
if you setup a reseller on your ehcp, other users will not be able to see resellers settgins...
there are four level of authentication in ehcp, and in most control panels:
1- Server admin, can manage almost anything (admin user in ehcp)
2- Reseller admin, can resell hosting, cannot manage server, created by server admin,
3- domain admin, can only change settings of his/her domain, can setup emails for his/her domain, can create dbs, cannot control reseller or server admin; set up by reseller admin,
4- email users: can only change email password, setup forwardings,
As a comparison,
This is not a math comparison, :)
Server Admin > Reseller > Domain admin > Email user

Can you use your panel to control multiple websites off one ip address, i seen that you can on apache, ISS, etc. but off linux with your panel?

you can use ehcp to
you can use ehcp to setup/control multiple websites on one ip address. By saying "control", i mean setup hosting, password protected domains, emails etc... You cannot for example control a CMS that is installed inside a site, by means of ehcp... Btw, note that ehcp is not a replacement for apache, iss.. it uses apache as web server... ehcp is a server admin control panel...
