can i use websitepanel without using a dns server and setting up filezilla server

    Question

  • Hi,

    i need some help on this topic.

    I am having a webserver which i was managing manually.

    Now i wish to use website panel for it.

     

    Is it possible that i can use websitepanel without setting up DNS server.

    Ex. most of the domains are hosted on godaddy and i have dns editor there.

    so is it possible if i can just change zone records and setup the domains on my webserver??

    One more problem:-

    I installed filezilla server and it is also added in websitepanel.

    I am able to create ftp users and these user's are also able to connect via ftp clients. But when thee user connect they are landed into empty folder i.e no folder name or root folder in ftp.

     

    Please help me with these issues/.

     

    Thank You

    Hi,

    Yes, it is possible to manage web sites without having DNS in place. To create web site go to Domains and click Create Domain, select Domain and untick 'Enable DNS' and ' Create Instant Alias ' checkboxes. This will create specified domain together with web site in IIS.

    So it is now Godaddy's DNS responsibility to resolve the domain into IP and then your IIS web server's responsibility to match this IP, hostheader and port against the web site you've created using WSP.
