Domain hosting

Hi

When ticking the default box when configuring a domain name, which directory shoud I put in? and is there anything else I need to put in.

What I mean is when you first get your domain and you click on the configure domain box.

Thanks

Domain hosting

It's up to you Robert. If you put an entry in the "Domain Hosting Settings" default option, then that directory becomes the "root" of the domain's webspace.

So, if I have a domain registered, I can enter "fred" in the Domain Hosting Settings option, so that the line reads /htdocs/fred. You then need to create a directory called "fred" on the FTP server. Place any docments in there that you wish to be served from your domain. So, if you create a file called index.html and put it in /htdocs/fred then http://www.yourdomain.co.uk/index.html will load that file.

HTH,

Tony
