    Domain Integration

    Hi

    Where can I find info on domain integration? For example I'm making a website builder and my members would want their registered domain - www.mysite.com to their (my hosted website) built website.

    Thank you.

    Ummmmm.....

    A) Are you saying that you want to be a web hosting reseller? If so then you need to buy the reseller package from a web hosting company in order to have access to the facilities to host and sell domain names.

    B) If you are looking at hosting websites on a single domain, then you would need to either use subdomains that link to folders on the server and your clients have their web domains link to that subdomain, eg. http://theirsite.mysite.com, you might need to employ some URL rewrites as well.

    IMHO option (A) is best option, more professional and manageable.
    Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08)
    Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz... (\\.\ Aug08)
    I want to leave this world the same way I came into it, Screaming, Incontinent & No memory!
    I laughed that hard I burst my colostomy bag... (\\.\ May03)
    Life for some is like a car accident... Mine is like a motorway pile up...

    Yes exactly what I want. I would do (A) but I don't have the budget to do so. How would I go about doing (B)? Any tutorials for that? Thank you so much.

    I see that I'm able to do it on the control panel. Would I have to create those subdomains for users manually?

    Cost depends on your host company.

    If you are reselling, the object is to divide the cost between your customers / users and add a bit on for your bother.

    My web hosting costs 30 a year all in including the domain name.

    Maybe your option would be to find a hosting company that is cheap and gives you unlimited traffic, bandwidth and enough serverside resources that you can then operate as many single user accounts and you act as a broker.

    A word of warning though, domain registration... The web hosting comapny I use has an account with a domain registration company in the USA.

    Whilst the domains registered are .uk TLD's, the main issue is that the actual company that does the registration sends out letters warning people that their domain is about to expire.

    What is wrong with that is they are cutting out the broker who I use and trying to dupe me and others in to parting with sums of money that they will have no right to and also be creating a deadlock situation where I for example if I had paid the company be in ownership of a domain I could neither use or transfer out of the hosting company...

    Thats one dirty little trick you would have to watch for and be aware of because the domain registration company will have had its money and run.

    So, do you still want to resell?
