Recently many people have brought up issues such as, all of their sites are pulling up the same home page and files, or they want to setup SSL for one of their sites, or how do you setup more than one site on the Plesk server. All of this has to do with if the site is setup to be name based or IP based.

The first thing that should be known is that when you start out, you only have one IP address, and that IP address is to be shared among all of the sites you setup, and all of the sites you setup must be name based in order for them to share that IP address. The only time that an IP based site should be setup is if you have either purchased another IP address for your UPipe account, or you only have one site and do not plan on setting any more up on your account.

The next thing that should be known is that you should never enable SSL for a site unless it is setup as an IP based site with an additional IP address which you purchased for your UPipe account (not the original IP address that came with your account). A site must be setup with its own IP address as an IP based site or SSL will not work.

I don't know about other accounts, but my account is provided with two IPs

one I can't assign to any domain I want and another for all my named based domains in
Client homepage->Prefreances->premissions I find this:


QUOTE
Client can create Name-based hosting using 207.109.186.11  
 
Client can create ip based hosting accounts:  Yes  
 
List available IP's:  209.181.46.138



notice they are diffrent IPs

i think all accounts are the same
207.109.186.11 is server's ip

209.181.46.138 is YOUR IP
if u want having more than 1 domain choose name based

Here is a screen shot note the IP beside Named-Base IS the server IP, it would make since that there is no PRACTICAL limit on how many name-based domain's a IP could have

If you read other threads on this subject, you'll notice that no domains are ever pointed at the server IP (207.109.186.11).

We have a bandwidth rule setup for that IP to discourage anyone from doing so. It is set to 30Kbps (less than a 56K modem data rate).

You should be pointing all DNS at the IP we assigned to you so that you get the data rate you're paying for.

Just ignore the server IP anywhere you see it and use the IP we assign to you instead. When you create name based hosts, they are actually setup to use the IP we assign to you for name based hosts, not the server IP. We have some custom programming on the back end to do this.

If you closely read the post that started this thread, you should not be assigning the first IP we give to you as a dedicated IP to any site. The IP we assign you (not the server IP) is what your account will use for all shared hosting domains.
