    hi guys,
    I know this have been asked before for many times,
    but I still can't find the answer.

    I need to connect to my website without domain name

    meaning: instead of
    I want to type ip address:

    is it possible ?

    Not by default. You may be successful by adding the userdir directive to your apache configuration manually (you should get the something like, but I believe this is not recommended with the ISPConfig setup. I haven't done this myself. Userdir is known for it's vulnerabilities.

    Is it a option for you to define your websites in the hosts file of your local windows, linux or mac workstation?

    One option I have used for a long time is giving each customer a website alias under our domain. So if the customer website is I would also create a domain alias of

    This would give the customer the ability to start uploading and testing their website before they would have their domain name changed over from their previous ISP.

    I think it is a very good idea that Clogboy suggested
    is it possible to add it as a built-in feature in ispconfig?

    This is possible in ISPConfig already, just add a co-domain to the website with and chech the create DNS checkbox, as long as the DNS-Record of the domain is managed on the same server, everything is configured autonatically.

    It's already part of ISPConfig. Just create the co-domain for your new customer.

    For direct access modify your httpd.conf etc.. is working


    <IfModule mod_userdir.c>
    UserDir /var/www/*/web/
    <Directory /var/www/*/web>
    AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
    Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
    AddHandler cgi-script .pl
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all

    thanks for the reply.
    I think since many people also requested for it
    it is a good option to add into domain setting for example
    a check box > ALLOW DIRECT ACCESS

    so Ispconfig automatically add it into httpd.conf

    I don't want to mess around with httpd.conf

    thanks again
