So simple and yet so powerful :)

Ease of use

if you know what you are doing then it's easy, yes. Without that you just won't be able to fathom all the possibilities you have :)


the one point i wanted to look up / get further information about ( 'template styles ' -> 'vd overrides styles' ) was not yet documented

The Virtual Domains Extension is a very powerful multi-domain management extension. One is able to manage endless numbers of domains from a single Joomla Administrator backend in a very easy way. When the extension is installed and domains entered in the admin panel, Access Levels are created for Menu's, Articles, Modules, templates, you name it. So the access levels are for instance the default Joomla access levels i.e. Guest/Registered/Public/etc but when you have created 'Sitename A' and 'Sitename B' They become also visible in the Articles/modules/menu's/templates and more so it is very easy to assign an article or module or menu to either defined sites or to both through "Guest/Public and more. You can assign different templates/styles to different sites with their own logo and content and menu links.

We have used this now on several sites and it is extremely easy to use. The documentation is not that clear and actual needs improvement but as soon as you are stuck and you send a message to Michael Liebler you will be very friendly and professional assisted with clear explanations. If you have multiple sites with a lot of identical content to manage (multi-shops in several countries for instance or similar multilingual sites with different domain extensions (think .eu/.de/.nl/.com )this tool is a blessing and awesome!

This is a work of art!!! If you're using CPanel the easy way to get it up and running is in CPanel to just put the addon domains in the same document root as the base domain, create a single article having the same name as the addon domain and then add a menu item to one of your published menus with the same name as the addon domain and then add the domain name to the VD component admin. To Michael, my only suggestion might be to have VD be able to set different featured articles to each domain added to VD. BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your warm words. Have you thought about using the accesslevels to achieve your goal? I think you have noticed that an accesslevel has been created for each domain after creation in VD. So you can simply assign the domain specific access level to an article to show it on that domain but not elsewhere. If you think that it doesn't work for you lets discuss it on the forum (click the support button above).

Seems great

This extensions seems great, but can't get it work, and no answer from the developper.


I added this to my installation about 45 days ago. I wanted to get it running over time before reviewing. It's been great. Installation and configuration was a breeze. I tweaked htaccess to help resolve some cross-domain instances - but that has to do with my setup. Nothing that's a problem with the extension.

I haven't seen any problems with SEO. Actually, it's improved SEO since client sites are resolving as Google, Bing, and Yahoo expect.

I tested out the extensions ability to send email as the parked domain - it worked really well. So well, though, that Akeeba Subscriptions was sending subscriber notifications from the parked domains - unrelated to the domain the user subscribed to. Had to leave those settings blank in Virtual Domains and just live with system emails generated by the installation's domain name.

I haven't experienced any system slowdown with it. Caching seems to work fine. Though, I did discontinue using jbetolo as it got a little confused how to cache info across the virtual domains. It worked, but a savvy visitor would see cached css and js from unrelated domain names. It looks like I could play with the settings more as the newer version of Virtual Domains provides more features that might work around it.

The extension also works really well with Akeeba Admin Tools in play. It was a concern how the two would get along and I have had no problems at all.

Brilliant work, Developers. Thank you.
