Virtual Hosts
Virtual hosting allows you to host more than one domain name on a server. The general domain configuration does not change. When you create a virtual host, this becomes the default domain for a user login. Zimbra Web Client users can log in without having to specify the domain name as part of their user name.
Virtual hosts are entered on the Domains>Virtual Hosts tab on the administrator’s console. The virtual host requires a valid DNS configuration with an A record. Not required for Virtual Hosts.
To open the Zimbra Web Client log in page, users enter the virtual host name as the URL address. For example, https://mail.company.com.
When the Zimbra login 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.
