Questions about Inetpub/root folder

I've the following questions:

  • In the Account Home / Policies / Web Policy is the sentence "* All folders are relative to Space home".   Now, where do I define the "Space home?"
  • When adding a new hosting plan (Website), it takes <Space Home>[domain_name]wwwroot by default.  However, in the Domain_name is the portion of [hostname].[website]   which could be "www" + "".   I want the websites in IIS to be named only: "" and not "" so I do not enter a hostname when adding the website.   However, then I have to manually (always!) add a "www" pointer to the website.  WHat is best practice and am I doing something wrong or is it like this?
  • When adding a hosting plan (including FTP), I always have to manually add an FTP user.  Is there a way that automatically the first user is created?

Kind regards,

  1. Space home is defined in the "system" service (by default c:hostingspaces)
  2. You do not need to manually add www to the pointer just make sure the IIS DNS is set correct (so you have a www A [ip] record and [host_name] A [ip] record) in addition you shouldn't add to the panel.
  3. When you add a hosting space (hosting plan = just configured to provision spaces) you can "automatically provision" things which looks like my screenshot below --> it has a domain name, web, ftp, mail, Organization provisioning section you can enable/disable for each space creation.


I am not sure why it's not sending you the CLA confirmation, i will check it out shortly and report back to you
