Before your purchase you should first of all understand what this add-on is for: With this add-on you can use a single concrete5 installation to serve multiple domains. You can map each domain to display separate pages from your sitemap.
Now, if you understand this, it's time to make sure you can run this add-on on your server. You will need to know how to setup your server and DNS settings yourself in order to use this add-on. You can also hire us to do that for an additional fee and we will be happy to help you out. As we clearly ask you to read this guide through before your purchase, we will not refund your license in case you are not able to do the setup yourself and you are not willing to hire external help. It is not an issue with our add-on, it is an issue with the skills of the license holder. We try to be very clear about this and ask you kindly to confirm that you can do the setup yourself or make sure that you are prepared to pay for it, prior to your purchase.
We follow the marketplace refund policy but in case you are unable to do the server setup, it is not our responsibility to setup your server for you free of charge. The license price buys you the right to use this add-on on one a single concrete5 project (and its instances like development, testing and production). The license price does not provide you our free concultancy on setting up servers. It is on the user's responsibility to make sure they understand what they are buying and what it takes to set it up prior to their purchase. We have made this clear and we do not know how to be clearer about this. In case you failed to read this prior to your purchase, it is your responsibility. By following this guide, you should be able to figure out whether you have the necessary skills for the setup, you do not need to buy the add-on for that purpose.
Please note that many budget hosting service providers or shared hosting services may not allow you to map multiple domains to a single location under your account. It is therefore also good to make sure that you have a suitable environment prior to your purchase. You can check this also by following this guide.
You can easily make sure your server environment supports the add-on by going through the following steps prior to your purchase:
1. Are you able to control the DNS of your domains?
2. Do you know how to map all your domains from your DNS servers to your web server?
3. Are you on a shared server / budget hosting account or do you control the server yourself (VPS or dedicated server)?
4. Shared hosting
4.1. Does your hosting provider's admin panel allow you configure multiple domains for your account?
5. VPS or dedicated server
5.1. Do you manage the server directly through SSH or through a web interface, such as cPanel?
5.2. SSH: Do you have root or sudo account to your server?
5.3. SSH: Can you modify your web server application's settings without root or sudo account?
5.4. SSH: Do you know how to manually edit your server's virtual host settings?
5.5. Web interface: Do you know how to change the virtual server settings from your interface, i.e. map different domains to different locations on your server?
6. Confirm all your domains are now served from the correct location on your web server
Locate the path on your server from which you have mapped all the domains to be served. Create a new file there named test.php.
Put the following contents to the file:
<?php echo "OK";
Now, open up your web browser and try to request that file from each of your domains, i.e. type the following URLs to your browser (replace the domains with the domains you have just set up to be served by your web server):
Under each domain, do you see a white page appearing with the test "OK" on it?
