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 administration console for a domain on the Domains>Virtual Hosts page. 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.
