Host Headers and dns

Hello everyone. I’m trying to perform Host Headers, on my device.
I may not be using the correct terms, but all I’m trying to do is some sites on the same IP address in port 443.
I guess it’s related to DNS and I’d be happy if you could guide me

Not sure what you are talking about, can you be more specific? Do you have a Peplink Pepwave product?

The two serial numbers that I have attached are two devices that I bought second hand in Ebay. And I want to manage them in incontrol, but I try to attach them, I get a message that these specific devices are managed by another account and belong to another company. All I want to know is how to get them out of someone else’s management and pass it on to me.

I recommend not to buy anything on ebay. Thanks

That doesn’t seem like a fair response to a reasonable question - if you own the device and someone else has it listed InControl (a service which is not free), how does the device owner terminate the connection?

Regardless, with only two devices its not hard to manage the two devices directly. Just push the reset button, log into the device without connecting it to the internet, and make sure the box that allows remote management is not checked.

We need proof of ownership including pictures of the device labels as well as diagnostic reports. This information can be submitted via a support ticket.

Devices that are old and outdated may not be supported by InControl. Thanks

I believe what you are trying to do is hosting multiple websites (, and at a single web server. In Apache web server, this feature is called Virtual Host.

When the HTTP requests from users reached the web server, the web server will use the HOST header in each HTTP request to determine the correct destination to forward those HTTP requests.

The HOST header will automatically inserted by the web browser. There is no need to configure it at the DNS server. You may refer to following HTTP requests :

As you may see, my browser will automatically add in the HOST header at each HTTP requests. When the HTTP requests reached your web server, it will be up to your web server to make the forwarding decision.

As for Peplink router, we will just perform the normal port forwarding to forward the HTTP requests to your web server. We will not add in HOST header or remove the HOST header. We will forward the original HTTP requests to your web server.

Hope this answer your question.
