Connecting external domain

Folks, I'd like to know if I'm doing this right:

ns1.heliohost.us

ns2.heliohost.us

 

I've just acquired a domain at Freenom (sitesfy.tk) and there in the DNS zone configuration I'm pointing there (data above). Is that all? How will your system know which site it's pointing to, as there are a lot of sites in your shared server. Isn't the IP necessary? Thanks.

Once you add it to your account in cpanel, the server can tell which content belongs to which domain based on the apache configuration. When you add the site in cpanel, a virtual host is created in the apache configuration for it, which specifies its document root among other things. The server just looks at the domain in the request headers to determine where it should be looking for content.

 

This works for pretty much everything these days with the exception of SSL connections on Windows XP and older, which don't work due to a combination of our servers no longer having TLS 1.1 support and the OSes and browsers lacking support for Server Name Indication and newer TLS versions.

I didn't understand. So you mean I need to alter the htaccess config? I'm on the third day, and the domain is not working at all. Why. See. Is it correct?

No. You're supposed to set the name servers on the domain at your registrar, then you go into cPanel and add the domain under aliases (if it should show the same content as the main domain) or add on domains (if different content from main domain). Then you wait 2 hours and it works.

 

The bad news is that Johnny is down yet again, so it's not going to work regardless of what you do: http://heliohost.grd.net.pl/monitor/ Johnny's uptime is terrible even on a good day, since the server is meant for testing things and is not meant for hosting a production website. Ignoring the current outage, normal uptime for Johnny is only around 95%, whereas Tommy is nearly 100%.

 

Considering how badly Johnny is performing at the moment, I'll be having Krydos look at the server...

Ok, now it's working. I've just set up the subdomains. Why is it not working when I try to access them?
