different counting of domains

Currently all Co-Domains count towards the Max Domains value.

For example if I have a www.domain.tld I mostly want it to have domain.tld as a Co-Domain so the user can choose if he wants to write http://www.domain.tld or http://domain.tld.

Unfortunately this already counts as 2 domains.

So if I have a costumer and want to limit the max domains to 2 I would have to give him 4 in order for him to have either www.domain.tld and domain.tld.

But unfortunately this gives the possibility to create 4 individual domains!

It would be great if the Max Domains value applys only to Domain creation and if there would be a different way to add several host to currently existing domains without counting as additional domain.

Hope this makes sense. :-)

It makes sense, but I'm not sure how to implement it because,,, and are all subdomains (technically spoken).

How about this:

Add Max. Host value

Remove the Hostname input field when creating a new Co-Domain

Add tab Hosts on and show the Hostname by Domain.

For new Host remove Domain input field

This way it doesn't matter if all Co-Domains are subdomain because you can only add Hosts to Domains already created.
ISPConfig has to check how many Domains, meaning domain.tld, the user can add as well as how many Hosts.

What do you think about this?

Do you think you could add this feature in future releases?
If it helps I'd help with developing it.

I fully Aggree with torusturtle's solutions - there are already to many websites were the dns is setup by "morons" :) were they omit the domain.tld resolution and only have www.domain.tld. I would in anycase like to see an tick at least allowing for an www sub-domain created automatically with each new domain made in the nameserver.
