WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi,

I just set up my doamin name, I bought it on godaddy, let say test.com, and pointed the dns to NS1.WEBFACTION.COM, NS2.WEBFACTION.COM ...

now I create a website/app/domain that responds to test.com on webfaction to receive and serve info on test.com

I can't see what prevent another user to server something to any subdomain like test.test.com and be able to use my identity to serve malicious data

What do protect me?

thanks

If you have already added your domain, for example test.com, to your account, then other customers won't be able to add subdomains of that domain to their own accounts. The control panel will not allow it.

Not sure what you mean. Other users cannot arbitrarily add your subs of your domain name after it is added in your control panel. It is only available to you at that point. I've been using Webfaction for more than 8 years and it is simply not possible to do what you are suggesting.
