To add a new host to the web server, go to the main console dialog and press Add in the Hosts table.
The displayed dialog contains the following fields:
Protocol: Set it to HTTP if the host will use normal non-secure connections. If you want to have the host serve content over secure connections only using SSL/TLS, set it to HTTPS. You can also choose to have the host serve content on both secure and non-secure connections by setting Protocol to HTTP+HTTPS. In such a situation, you can configure some virtual paths to be accessible on secure connections only by adding them to the Exclusively Serve On HTTPS table.
Certificate Type: The origin of the certificate that is used for secure connections with the new host. The certificate can be retrieved from the certificate store (a self-signed certificate or a certificate from a certificate authority) or generated by an ACME server using a declared ACME account. This field is not available if the Protocol is set to HTTP only.
Certificate: The name of certificate from the certificate store that will be used for secure connections with the new host. Note that the certificate's Host Name (Common Name) should be equal to or match with the names associated with the new host. Otherwise, visitors' browsers will report a warning about mismatched names on every access to the host. This field is available only if Certificate Type is set to From certificate store.
ACME Account: The name of the ACME account which ACME-Bot uses to request a certificate for secure connections with the new host. This field is available if Certificate Type is set to From ACME account.
Host Name: The main name of the new host. If the field is empty, the host will not be associated with any name and will answer to all requests that reach it on the configured port. The host can also have more than one name: additional names should be declared later in the Host Names table in the General dialog related to the host. The host name may be an Internation Domain Name (IDN) containing non-Latin characters. The host name can also be a pattern such as *.mysite.com. Refer to the "Patterns Format" appendix for more information about patterns.
Note: Adding a new host is only possible in Abyss Web Server X2. Abyss Web Server X1 can only manage a single host.
