Re: Group Forums will never work on some hosting providers

I think he’s talking about *how* domain names get resolved on a shared hosting provider. I ran into problems with domain resolution on my DV. In my case it was just a matter of changing the /etc/hosts file. Since I don’t know what I’m doing in root, it took days to figure out what I needed to change to get xmlrpc working.

I think he’s saying that domain resolution on a shared host can be difficult to control by the user. Me or you as the user on a shared host. Simply because I have a domain hooked up to an ip address doesn’t mean that I have control over *how* that ip address is determined.

1. Lookup ip here in the internal net of the shared provider

2. Lookup ip there in the provider’s name servers

(Return the first ip that I find above)

I think what he’s saying is that the above process will not return the correct ip for the low level stuff that is happening in xmlrpc.

I’m just kinda hazy at the moment as to why the internal ip address is not valid for xmlrpc.
