Posted by KB Editor on 10 May 2017 03:59 PM

When a Customer User Account is created, WSP will prompt you the option of also creating a Hosting Space.  The Hosting Space(Control Panel) is where all your domain's DNS records and website data are created and stored.  This article will cover creating and deleting a Hosting Space for an existing Customer User Account on VPSClass ASP and Dedicated servers using WebsitePanel.

Creating a Hosting Space

To create a hosting space:

  1. Log into the server as serveradmin (https://servername or https://serverip)
  2. Click on Customers under the Account Menu sidebar
  3. Click on the username needing a Hosting Space(Control Panel)
  4. Click Create Hosting Space

  5. Provide the following information:
    • Hosting Plan: Use the dropdown menu to select a hosting plan(hosting package) to apply to the Hosting Space
    • Hosting Space status: Use the dropdown menu to select a status(The status is always set to Active by default)
    • Send Space Summary letter: This checkbox allows you to send the specifications of the Hosting Space once created
    • Domain Name: Type a domain name in this field
    • Create Web Site: This checkbox allows the Customer User Account to create and store website data in the hosting space
    • Create FTP Account: This checkbox creates an FTP user to remotely manage the website data using an FTP Client
    • Create "Catch-All" Mail Account: This checkbox creates a default email address([email protected]) which receives all misrouted or misaddressed email instead of sending a bounceback message to the sender.  Due to security and spam concerns we recommend leaving this checkbox blank
  6. Click Create Space

Deleting a Hosting Space

  4. Click the Hosting Space you want to delete under the Space Name column
  5. Click Delete in the third column
