    Hi guys,
    Currently users can access their sites via http://hostingserver.com/~username
    Is there any other way to access their sites besides this one.
    Is it possible for example when a user is created, WHM to create and subdomain for the user, for example

    someuser.cpservername.com
    and the site to be accessible via this url and not the ~/username

    Thanks

    Here's a cool way to access newly created sites without having to go through www.youdomain.com/~username.

    Create the account in normal way, tell the customer to change there DNS server settings to manual and give them your DNS servers details to enter.

    When they access there domain eg. www.userdomain.com it will go directly to there account as it's looking it up using your DNS records.

    Regards

    This will work but is not preferred option. I cant serve (dont want to) as dns server for all my clients. And something else, i have forbidden reqursive queries for the dns server. I dont want the dns to be used to resolve other than the hosted domains.
