Planning for the Installation : Configuring for Virtual Hosting

Configuring for Virtual Hosting
You can configure multiple virtual hostnames to host more than one domain name on a server. When you create a virtual host, users can log in without have to specify the domain name as part of their user name.
Virtual hosts are configured from the administration console Domains>Virtual Hosts tab. The virtual host requires a valid DNS configuration with an A record.
When users log in, they enter the virtual host name in the browser. For example, https://mail.example.com. When the Zimbra logon screen displays, users enter only their user name and password. The authentication request searches for a domain with that virtual host name. When the virtual host is found, the authentication is completed against that domain.
