I'm about to go to adsl for my home. Going with tpg, for the static
IP number & unlimited downloads. I have several domains, which are
currently hosted elsewhere.
The question in a nutshell is this;
Can I host 2 (or more) domains on one static IP address?
And if so, can someone point me in the right direction as how to go
Yes, you certainly can. This is called Name-based Virtual Hosting.
If any of those domains you plan to host on your home server require
the use of a SSL certificate, you'll need to host those SSL-enabled
sites on their own unique IP addresses. This is called IP-Based
I had a quick look at the virtual services howto, but this appears
to be for when you have seperate IP numbers for each domain.
I'll probably think of lots of other questions, but this will do
for a start.
HTH :) (argh, acronyms)
