you gotta setup domains like: domain.com, not www.domain.com. Otherwise, tell me what you're setting up exactly (and your nic too)

Thanks Marks..

I have pointed one domain to you and its working fine www.clubiom.co.uk. I have not yet pointed my next domain but when I go into the manager to set it up I am getting this error:
Mandatory settings are missing.
You are not allowed to install subdomain like a multi-domain.
Please refer to subdomain menu.
See details

well, you definitely need a webhosting package at OVH that supports Multidomains (from Personal and above). Every webhosting package will have a main domain, the domain it's been ordered for (whether the domain is registered at OVH or not, that doesn't matter).

Apart from this main domain, the webhosting package can host the websites of up to 1000 other domains, through the Multidomain feature, regardless they are registered at OVH or not.

My other domains are not hosted by OVH and those instructions seem refer to domains hosted at OVH from what I understand?
well, I understand that you want to host those domain at OVH, right? you may not have those domains registered at OVH, but you still can host their websites with OVH.


Hope this explains it.

if you want to host another domain in your webhosting package which is different from the domain that you bought it for, you have to use the multidomain functionality.

So, you activate your package to host another domain, and then you can upload your site there. Follow the guide for more info:
