Hosting website on PAYH

I have one of the PAYG trial accounts - I also have my own domain (registered and hosted on Plusnet) which I'm making almost no use whatsoever for web pages, I got it for the email address.
I've been doing a little playing around with the PAYH under the URL http://www.username.plus-payh.co.uk/ I was given for the trial, but would now like to move on to the next stage.
Can I host the website for www.mydomain.me.uk on my PAYH account without affecting the email setup and if so how do I go about it?

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

Hi
If the domain is on your Plusnet account, you can point the domain to the PAYH platform whilst keeping the email with Plusnet.
Just raise a ticket to us requesting the domain to be re pointed to your PAYH account:
http://help.plus.net > Sales & Orders > Plusnet Hosting
If you want the domain to be used on the same website as username.plushost.co.uk just put that on the ticket, as by default it will be added as a new domain with its own space.

All done, please ignore the email that the PAYH system has sent about updating your name servers.

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

I was about to post to ask about that email!
I'm a bit bothered by the MX configuration. On the Plusnet portal it now is set as "I wish to specify DNS records for hosts under this domain" (as I expected). I thought that would mean that all the MX records would have to be shown when I went to the Configure DNS records page. However the only entry showing there is MX 20 mx.last.plus.net. (I suspect that should have been removed when we upgraded to IronPort).
Do I need to add entries for mx-ironport.core.plus.net and mx-ironport.last.plus.net? If so how should they be configured? (do we need Bob's help on this?)

You just set that you want email through POP3, but for domain hosting settings set it to other and provide the information in the additional DNS records.

Your email was left set to POP3

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

Thanks Colin. It is set for POP3. It appears that the MX records don't appear when you set "I wish to specify DNS records for hosts under this domain" - that's what confused me.
Interestingly when I dig the mx.last.plus.net doesn't show up, presumably the mail POP3 setting overrides this - should I remove it?

I think POP3 overrides it, but it's been a while since I last used it.

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

How soon should I be able to see the changes on the Auth servers (ns1.force9.net and ns2.force9.net? (I know it can take some considerable time for the changes to get round all the caching DNS servers)

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

The new domain is showing databases allowed as zero on Plesk - is this correct? (or do I have to share the same database as the other domain using different prefixes?)

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

Hi
With the free accounts, thats correct you only have the 1 database to share across the sites on the account.
With the next packages up, which are charged at £2.50 p/m incl VAT and £5 p/m ex VAT you get 3 databases to share.
If you go on to the full PAYH packages then you get unlimited databases.

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

Several hours of effort later I've hit a brick wall - safe mode!
Is there any update on the situation regarding this?

Re: Hosting website on PAYH

I believe that this has been answered in a different thread (which i know you're aware of).
