Pointer Domain Handling Tutorial Print

  • 202

This tutorial explains how you can host pointer domains with a Java web hosting package from JavaPipe. This is assuming that you wish to host a particular webapp for a different pointer domain other than your primary domain.

  1. First thing you need to do is to create a pointer domain in you SiteWorx control panel.
  2. Then you need to add a Host entry in your server.xml (It is a very good idea to back up this server.xml file before editing it.) Be careful not to change any of the port information – doing so could get your site suspended.

Place following code after the last </Host> tag and just before the closing </engine> tag

<Host name="{pointerdomain.com}" debug="0" appBase="webapps"        
    unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">  
    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"      
        prefix="{pointerdomain.com}_log." suffix=".txt"          
        pattern="common" resolveHosts="false"/>  
    <Context path="/"     
        crossContext="false" reloadable="true"> 

Replace {username}, {domain.com}, {pointerdomain.com} and {webappname} with your own.

Set up the webapp or drop in a new WAR file of the new webappname in your webapps directory.

Restart tomcat.

Limitations for Pointer Domains.

  • There is no seperate email system for pointer domains. info@primarydomain.com and info@pointerdomain.com are the same.
