    Hi Everyone,
    I have a couple questions any help is greatly appreciated.

    1. I only get soo many ip's with my server and do not have enough to give every user an IP, so I do shared IP hosting. Well, the only downside to that is they can't view their site through the web until their domain is transferred/registered. My question is, is there any way to maybe have like a master domain and then set something up in apache where these sites can be pulled up by going to like or something like that until their domain is on the server. Any ideas???

    2. Also, I want to buy a SSL Cert. but I need to know how to make it serwide. i've seen something like or something like that, any ideas?

    1) All sites can be viewed before domain name propogation by going to http://server_hostname/~username/

    For example. My servername is You can view my site at

    You don't have to do anything special to make this work. It should work that way out of the box.

    2) Since the above works. I bought a cert for so that all clients could use https://server_hostname/~username/ to user it serverwide. Again as a demo, see
