We operated a dedicated server a while back, and every account had a "temporary link" that looked like this:
~sometext was limited at 8 characters I believe.
We also have a resellers account with our hosting provider, and the account names for this look like this:
http://xx.xxx.xx.xxx/thedomainname.co.uk - but with no character limits.
I much prefer this style (even if just for aesthetic reasons).
Is there some kind of Apache module that allows for longer user names?
Hope I've been clear enough
