Perfecting domain security

(Apparently, this forum is not the most active service of Gandi, but hello and welcome.)

So, I have registered a domain (4 actually, but right now tinkering with only one) and after looking around several places, I found that the most suitable way to host my content is Simple Hosting by Gandi. At least, it seems so, for now.

I have been messing around with DNS, and somehow I just couldn’t get everything right on hardenize.com and internet.nl - two diagnostics site I use to confirm the security setting of a domain.

Creating individual sites on my SH instance eventually worked like a charm, I don’t get 403s, handshake problems, or any other unwanted responses for both www and mta-sts - and in the future, openpgpkey - subdomains.
But on the storage management side, it seems that linking files and folders is not an option?
Or is there a difference between softlinking and hardlinking?

Thanks in advance, should anyone notice this new post. :slight_smile:

But, on a second thought, I can create different vhosts for different resources, and only for those. Maybe adjust a bit here and there for SEO, but in general, that should work. Like the subdomains for specific files in .well-known, subdomains for images, css, js, etc.

Hello!

If you’d like to link multiple addresses to a single root directory, you can use the Multi-Address Management tool available in the Simple Hosting Control Panel.

https://docs.gandi.net/en/simple_hosting/connection/control_panel.html#multi-address-management-symlink

You can also activate and connect to the SSH console to manually create any symlinks if that’s what you require.

Don’t hesitate to open a support request at https://help.gandi.net/ if you run into any issues.

Oh, thanks for the tips, I guess I got too used to Cloudflare’s “everything on the account dashboard” approach. :thinking:
