I have got a big problem. My resellers as they sell for more than us, we give them their own ip's for nameservers and tell them to set up a catchall email address so that their customers can't see who we are but now we have got another problem the writing that comes up when you connect to ftp says our hostname. I tried renaming it to something anonimous like plesk.server.net but the email stopps working when I do this !
So is there a way to change the text so that it doesn't show our hostname?? And if not, is there a way to change the hostname to somthig that doesn't exist without stopping the email from working????
The hostname is a serious thing and it is what identifies your server - so dont go changing it. Also if you need Apache to start your hostname should resolve to your server IP - which means you need zone records for your hostname in your DNS
If your domain is ninja.com and you want to call your server foo.ninja.com and your server's primary IP is 184.108.40.206 then you need an A record in your DNS that resolves foo.ninja.com to 220.127.116.11
If you are using ProFTPd then you can edit proftpd.conf and set
ServerIdent Off [or No cant remember] and your hostname wont show in FTP
