    You can use a bogus domain such as abcd.bogus.

    If you do not assign an IP to the account, then you will have to enable the user to login to http://<sharedip>/~abcd/

    You will want to disable all mail features.

    Ah..
    So for example if i have a user abcd
    i can type the following in Domain: abcd.mydomain.com
    that would automaticly create a subdomain in my account that holds mydomain.com ?
    or would i have to create a subdomain there manually and redirect it to http://<my-ip>/~abcd ?

    Thanks Tets

    It would create a seperate account using abcd.mydomain.com. It is not the same as creating a subdomain through the cPanel of mydomain.com.

    I have never tried creating an account using a subdomain of a bogus domain but I cannot think of a reason why it wouldn't work. The account name is what is used to connect to http://<sharedip>/~acct/
