Default Does ISPConfig support Addon Domains?

Hi,

I'm in the process of moving my website from a shared web hosting provider to a VPS that I'm presently setting up and intending to use ISPConfig.
I am curious if ISPConfig supports addon domains as I own 2 domains, with my second domain being hosted on the server where my original domain is kept.

Cheers,
Nap

ISPConfig supports websites as well as alias and subdomians. You can host ue as many domains on your server as your server hardware is able to serve, there are nolimits in ispconfig.

I understand subdomains, ie subdomain.maindomain.com.
However, I'm not sure what an aliase is. I assume, that it allows me to access maindomain.com using aliasdomain.com instead. Thus allowing two domain names to share the same code etc.

If the above is true, then, judging by what you said, I guess "Addon" domiains are not supported.

To explain my understanding;

maindomain.com accesses the index.html file in the public_html folder.
subdomain.maindomain.com accesses the index.html file in the public_html/subdomain folder.
aliasedomain.com accesses the index.html file in the public_html folder.
addondomain.com accesses the index.html file in the public_html/addondomain folder.

This has implications for the coding of my site, as I am making use of the Addon Domain functionality allowed by my hosting company already. (I am preparing migration to a VPS server.)

You can redirect a aliasdomain or subdomain to a subfolder, so what you describe at a addon domain is a aliasdomain with a subfolder redirect.
