CWP - suitable for a single user/domain CP?
« on: December 19, 2014, 03:01:15 PM »
i'll be the sole user for a single domain VPS and am wondering if CWP is suitable for me?

it is my understanding that both search engines and mail servers 'frown' upon web hosting accounts (shared) where your website domain is essentially a sub-domain of another domain and the mail server is shared, and this is something i want to avoid

so i guess my question is, can CWP be setup so that only one domain is used and so it doesn't look like a shared/web-host server to search engines?

You can set your hosting package to large limits ( effectively all resources will be yours ) add one user and one domain with a package that allocates almost all the resources to that one user and then set your sites and mail accounts up under that domain

hi glenn - thanks for the reply

apparently you have to have a domain pointing to the server to install CWP - my problem is that i can't point the domain that will be hosted on the server until the server is up and running - i have another domain that i can use to install CWP, so after everything is set up, can i then switch domains?

or are you suggesting setting it up normally and then adding the primary domain? which brings me back to the same question as to how search engines and mail servers 'see' the server since i want to look like it's all running on one domain as far as DNS and such

please check installation instructions on the website.

You need to setup your hostname for server, but you can access you server anytime using a server ip address regardless if you have pointed a domain to your server.

i understand, but that doesn't answer my question...

because i cannot point DNS to the server until it is completely setup, i need to use a 'temporary' domain to install the CP

after it is installed, i would like to point the permanent domain at the server, and only the permanent domain, so the server does not look like a shared server from an SEO point of view (it is my understanding that mail servers and search engines give a lower rank to shared IPs)

so the question is, can i swap out the temp domain with the primary after installation?

this is a problem for CP's such as zPanel and, possibly, CWP : if there's only one user and one domain, how can you install and setup the CP before transferring an existing live site to the new server/IP? pointing the domain for a live site to the new IP before it's completely setup is not an option for obvious reasons

I suggest you to use your main domain from the start. Add an apache AUTH password based on htaccess. That will prevent anyone to dig into your server contents.

Doing that, you have not to worry about use another domains or subdomains.
I do that to my own develops to avoid changing names, domains or locations.
Develop on real is the only way to get real errors :D

AUTH is your friend. Take a look: https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/PasswordBasicAuth

you dont need a domain to install and setup CWP you can use your live ip address to login to admin and add your domain at any time from there

Glen, him talks about use 1 and only 1 domain while accessing their VPS to do not tell "others" this is a shared hosting or "look like one" even if is not a shared system.

But i think it's a little paranoid. There's no real difference between use 2 domains/ip pairs on same VPS. So, it's the IP/domain association the thing it wanna kept as "single".

Anyway, kept access private until web open is the best way to do so.
You can also open doors only to GoogleBot and let it scanning your web before the real open date.

Regards.
