Hostnames

This feature allows administrators to assign a hostname for each IP address. For example: IP 1.1.1.1 can assigned to mail.domain1.com and IP 1.1.1.2 can be for mail.domain2.com. The benefit of assigning hostnames to IPs is that every domain on the server can be assigned its own IP address, thereby limiting the chances of the entire mail server becoming blacklisted should a user on one domain send out unwanted emails.

To view hostnames, click the manage icon and click Hostnames in the navigation pane. A list of hostnames will load in the content pane and the following options will be available from the content pane toolbar:

  • New - Creates a new hostname.
  • Edit - Edits the selected hostname.
  • Delete - Deletes the selected hostname(s).
