Intermediate Domains (Stop Gap Domains)

Feature Importer shared this idea 9 years ago
Open Discussion

As a Hosting Provider, I want Intermediate Domains (Stop Gap Domains), so that users will not have to wait for DNS propagation to access their site.


Basically when a user signs up for hosting services they may need to wait for DNS propagation before their domain (let's say: example.com) can be accessed directly. In the interim the hosting provider creates a Parked Domain via WHM of something like example.com.HostingProviderExample.com (where HostingProviderExample.com is the hosting company's website).


This is a feature that has been migrated over from the cPanel Forums. All previous comments and discussions concerning this feature can be located at:

we would like this based on the server hostname. We often do this manually because old user base urls don't work with htaccess rewrites.

We have done this via registering a unique name for every server. i.e. madrooster-server1.com and pointing the DNS nameservers at the server's primary nameservers.


Then creating a parked domain using the account's username on each cpanel account. i.e. jimbob.madrooster-server1.com.


We have been using postwww to but have been looking to to convert it over to use Managed Hooks, as postwww is being depreciated.
