    I have a simple question which I hope you can answer before I purchase a license.

    My company uses an online website builder, which runs about 40 websites from a shared code-base and a single mySQL database.

    We would like to know if we can easily achieve the following:

    * to point client domains to specific, already existing folders - the structure is very simple, a single folder containing numbered directories, each is a seperate website.

    for example, here is a rough idea of the website structure

    1/ -- contains all html from site 1
    2/ -- contains all html from site 2
    3/ -- contains all html from site 3

    1/ -- contains all images from site 1
    2/ -- contains all images from site 2
    3/ -- contains all images from site 3

    code/ -- contians all shared code to power sites.

    we did this for a while using 1&1 - their control panel allows add-on domains to be pointed to existing sub-directories, and does not create a seperate user account for each domain, we have also done this using .htaccess - but there is a limit to the size of the .htaccess file as we're about to erach it.

    hence a move to a VPS - and the choice between Plesk ( bad service in my experience ) & cPanel - which I'd rather.

    I'd also like to know if there is a limit to the number of add-on domains, I did read the number 50 somewhere?

    hope this all makes sense, and thanks in advance.
