Furter Information

  • domaindiscount24-Webspaces are multi-domain-capable.
  • Assign directory names when creating new FTP accounts (vHosts) to achieve a clean separation for multiple websites.
  • By using "/" as directory name when creating a new FTP account, existing subordinate directories can also be managed via this FTP access.
  • A limitation is the amount of memory available. In the event that a domain is no longer intended to use the web space in the future, delete all content via FTP before you delete the FTP account. Otherwise, only the FTP account would be deleted, but all content would still be on the webspace and use up storage space there.
  • If a domain has been transferred to domaindiscount24 and still uses the name servers of the original provider, an additional domain update to the dd24 name servers is required to resolve requests in the DNS to the dd24 web server.
