Use of IP addresses

When creating a user or reseller, DNSmanager allocates them a separate name space. A name space is view in the bind configuration file.

A separate IP address is assigned to every name space. Thus, a newly created user will be assigned a separate IP address.

This scheme is not very popular as it requires a great number of IP addresses.

How to allocate one IP address to several users
  • Create a reseller in DNSmanager
  • Drill down to the Reseller level
  • Create a user on the Reseller level
  • DO NOT select the "Private name space" check box on the creation form
