Re Hosting in Gold Membership
« on: February 28, 2017, 08:30:31 AM »
Hi All,

I will be upgrading my free account to Gold but have a question re hosting.

I'm interested in using the hosting option for setting up my main site but have question re bandwidth restrictions.

How far does the allowed bandwidth go, if I was to send paid traffic for options I might get 600/1200 visits per week... Would this use it all up?

Is there an opportunity to increase the allowed bandwidth?

Cheers
Alan

Hi Alan,

Welcome the the forum! The hosting comes with 20 GB monthly bandwidth, so you should be fine.

Thanks,
Mark

Thanks Jim Burney  :::tu

@ Mark, Thanks for your prompt response and sorry but one more quick question;

If needed can we only add subdomains as additional sites or can they be installed as Addon Domains?

I believe subdomains look like;

yourdomainname.com/newdomainname.com

And addon domains have a cleaner look of just;

newdomainname.com

Think i have that correct.

Thanks
Alan

Welcome Alan,
If you don't mind I'll jump in here and respond to your question.

You are correct about add-on domains but subdomains look like

subdomain.yourdomainname.com

They can also be accessed like this:

yourdomainname.com/subdomain

I am a Gold member but I don't have an account with Mark. I have dedicated servers so I figure I'll leave that to folks who need it. That said ...

Mark and I use the same server setups. The new cPanel allows multiple ways to have the directory structure setup.

The traditional way was, and still can be to have any subdomains in /home/<username>/public_html like this ...

/home/<username>/public_html/subdomain/

or

/home/<username>/public_html/addondomain.com

The new setup does allow subdomains to be below the public_html folder like this ...

/home/<username>/subdomain.yourdomainname.com

I Haven't tried adding a AddOn domain since this change but assume that applies with those as well. Personally I like that as it helps me keep things organized better.

Hope this is helpful

Thanks ASU Service,

Woosh! Straight over ones head lol

Well not quite, I kind of know where your coming from.

At the moment I'm really only interested in one main site, so as I've heard good things about Liquid Web why not sign up here for Gold and use it for hosting now and if things pick up maybe move to an independent set up later.

The only but to that might be this, my old rugby club might need helping out with a website and if i have my main domain as alansteward.com to add my rugby club it would in the browser look like...

alansteward.com.lytchettminsterrugbyclub.com

The above link would look odd to visitors?


Thanks Alan

What you posted above would not really be possible.  You could set up the website for the rugby team in a directory under alansteward.com.  The URL then would look like https://alansteward.com/lytchettminsterrugbyclub or https://lytchnettminsterrugbyclub.alasteward.com

That being said, another domain name could be purchased (i.e. https://lytchnettminsterrugbyclub.com) and pointed to either one of the above links.  If set up properly, they could use their own domain and no one would know they were part of your hosting/domain setup.

Hope that makes sense!

Hi Kelly,

Thanks for your response and yes they have their own domain name.

But think I read somewhere we can only add sub-domains to our account and not addon-domains (which would look independent to any hosting account)

I have previously used Hostgator or Bluehost where you can have unlimited addon-domains.

Therefore it's never been an issue for me and needn't be this time, as I only intend to run one site for now anyway, but, thought I'd clarify the situation anyway.

Catch up soon
Alan

Hi Alan,
LOL ... sorry, didn't mean to get all techy but it's difficult to discuss the topic without going there.  :laugh:

If you add their domain as an Add-On domain it will look normal in a browser ...

lytchettminsterrugbyclub.com

Doing it this way makes it a subdomain ...

lytchnettminsterrugbyclub.alasteward.com

To maintain their brand and any past work done I recommend you do it as an Add-On domain. This is very easy to do within your Gold hosting control panel.

I hope this helps.

most hosting comes with the ability to add domains and subdomains except maybe freebee hosting.  I don't think this is anywhere near freebee hosting.
