    I am wondering if it is possible to setup WHM to set the hostname of the machine to use a .onion address rather than a normal TLD (provided TOR is installed and running) and then create hosting accounts using .onion addresses. Of course nameserver would have to be disabled and TOR would have to be configured to handle incoming requests. Will apache serve up a .onion site if TOR on the server is configured to point a .onion address to the public_html directory of a site on the server. What is the best way to go about this?

    There is no native support for such a feature, and I am not versed enough in the TOR technology to know if a manual workaround would be possible. You are welcome to gather input from other users on this topic. Also, feel free to submit a feature request for this via:

    Thank you.
