    Seperate accounts for each domain?

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to place this question, but if it is not, please feel free to move it to the right forum.

    I have 5 domains that I want to host on my server. What I did was create an account on my server for 1 domain, and then added the other domains as addon domains to that account. The problem was that these addon domains pointed to subdirectories under the main account, so the main domain was accessible through http://123.456.78.90/~domain1, but the rest where accessible through http://123.456.78.90/~domain1/domain2, etc. I wanted all the domain names to be accessible through http://123.456.78.90/~domainx. After discussing this with PSM, the told me that I have to create separate account for each domain to get that.

    So I asked PSM to create separate accounts for each domain name for me. But the problem now is that I have to login separately in cPanel for each domain. I would have liked to have access to every one of these domain in 1 cPanel, compare stats, bandwidth, etc. But now I cannot because I have to login to cPanel for each domain.

    My question to you guys is, how do you manage multiple domains on your server? Do you create one account, and all the additional domains as addon domains to the account? Or do you create seperate accounts for each domain? What are the advantages and disadvantages for both methods?

    When we used cPanel, we logged into WHM to access customers cpanel account.
    It provided a dropdown to move from one account to another.

    I'm assuming since you posted this in the Dedicated Server Forum and are using cPanel, you also have access to WHM as well?

    Here's a link to WHM docs

    Login to your root WHM, underneath Account Information click the following links:
    List Accounts - will show create date, username, disk space usage, package, etc.
    View Bandwidth Usage - should be self explanatory
