    Id like to setup a configuration whereby i can offer some of my users webspace without needing their own domain.

    Id like it so that they could use a subdomain of one of my domains i.e.

    or a subfolder of my main domain

    This is simlar to how some of the 'free hosting' companies like geocities do it.

    Any ideas?

    You can use the user web feature of ISPConfig, but i would recommend that you create a website for each of your users.

    Simply add a website for each user with:

    host: username

    Then go to the co-domain tab and delete the co-domain that ISPConfig has created automatically.

    Infos to the user web feature are in the manual.

    you would need to edit your /etc/hosts file to show that site locally

    on windows xp pro


    edit the hosts file and add the following line;

    the result is the same and I suppose that the problem is another, infact I see the common home page with the title shared IP This IP address is shared. In order to approach the situated one that tries, you insert its distance. For questions or problems contacted the administrator of the server.

    this is my lan:
    server with ispconfig
    server for storage
    my pc
    my pc2
    my pc3
    if i want see my site on server with ispconfig, must I insert this line on all pc of the lan?

    yes, you'd need to enter that line on each of your pc,pc2,pc3,etc in order to see your site locally on the lan. if you have gui on the server then you need to make an entry into the /etc/hosts file there as well.
