    Hello Everyone,
    We've just recently start using CPanel for our Virtual Hosting. So this might sound like a dumb question to most. Why after an account is created in WHM, when we try to access this account we have to add &http://& in front of the domain name of the browser in order for it to resolve?
    Example: If we type this in the browser
    http://www.yourdomain.com:2082 (will resolve) But
    www.yourdomain.com:2082 (will not resolve)
    Is there any we have to do to the &Bind&?

    Many thanks,

    Shawn

    It's because whenever a port is added, the full address is required and correct protocol is to use an URI -- not a URL. The URI (Uniform Resource Indicator) is not as well known as URL (Uniform Resource Locator). Since a port is not a location one must &indicate& exactly what they are looking for.

    A URI can always be a URL, but a URL is not always a URI.

    Follows the: all poodles are dogs, but not all dogs are poodles, theory.

    That's the short version anyway -- since I could be way off base here. ;)

    The whole dry story can be found at RFC 2483 for more info.
