    Hello,

    A client of my hosting wished to ask - what is the maximum sub domain, addon domain, parked domain can cpanel support? He is currently using directadmin and says it can support a maximum of 5000 and need support for 10,000.

    Is this possible with cPanel 10??

    Please help anyone.
    Thanks,
    Sid

    Go on, have a guess
    There's no limit restriction.

    The limit will be a natural one for apache/your server. The more subdomains the greater the load on the server and the greater the data transfer consumed. Also, apache can start to baulk as the number of VirtualHosts increases into the thousands (mostly memory and startup related).

    With that type of requirement a dedicated server would be in order because of the likely impact on other shared accounts.

    An alternative solution would be to use a wildcard subdomain setup configured manually and use mod_rewrite in the main account to redirect subdomain queries into subdirectories for each subdomain.

    I have to ask the server room people for this then. Thanks for the suggestions and help. I think I can suggest the client for dedicated servers.
