Same Server, Different Domains

Posted on 1997-11-16

I am currently getting into web hosting.  Is it possible with my Mac server to set up multiple domain names on the same server with one dedicated access connection. I use MacDNS and domain names can be entered only with a seperate Ip address.  If this is possible, how would I set up WebCenter (My HTTP Server) to show different pages for the different domains.  (Perhaps make several copies?)  If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have actually any support to offer you and I beleive it is not possible for now that a mac host different IP addresses.  But, in the next version of os8 (8.1), due at the end of december, the major add-in of open transport (1.3) will be the support of this feature.  So, you will have to wait a month...

As I understand it, you need an http server program which supports multihoming. However, kleins is right; none are currently available for MacOS, so the answer in short is 'no.' I was under the impression (contrary to kleins) that MacOS 8.1 and OT 1.3 would _not_ fix the problem (but I could be wrong on that). At any rate, multihoming is expected in the next version of the premiere MacOS HTTP server, WebSTAR (version 3.0). That's expected sometime next year (Jan-March?).
