  • Multi-homed web sites

    Hello,

    I have multiple web sites bound to a single IIS web site and change content in code (ASP.NET) on my main sites based on the HTTP_REFERER (domain name). For example, in one IIS web site, I have:

    www.domain1.com
    www.domain2.com
    www.domain3.com

    All within one site, so they are all the same IP address, etc.

    I'd like to have one forum'ware (vBulletin 3) for all forums but be able to access the forums with each domain "prefix", for example:

    www.domain1.com/forums
    www.domain2.com/forums
    www.domain3.com/forums

    So you have three domains but ONE forum.

    I know in vBulletin's admin you have to specify a "home URL" etc. and I'm concerned I can't run vBulletin in a multi-homed configuration such as this. I also have a question about licensing as this is only ONE forum but the users think they are within their product web site. I have no problem buying a license for each domain and specifying the same database for all if that's the solution as well. I just don't want to visit separate sites to keep up with my customers, I want it all consolidated. I'm also concerned with site updates if I had four source file locations (sites) but one DB, again, if this is the only way to skin this cat!

    Take a look at my real sites and how I do it now:

    http://www.nc-software.com/forums
    http://www.logbookpro.com/forums
    http://www.avcataloger.com/forums
    http://www.merchantapps.com/forums

    I'm building new web sites and have always used vBulletin everywhere else, I'm considering moving my existing forums back to vBulletin if I can figure out the scenario above.

    Thanks!
