 +05] WHERE DO I UPLOAD MY VHOST'​ED HTML?
  
 +     When you run '​mkvhost'​ for a particular domain, you are
 +     told that your files reside in $HOME/​html/​domain.xxx
 +     for that particular domain. ​ These follow the same 
 +     ​conventions as any other directory .. you can create ​
 +     ​.htpasswd/​.htaccess files, index.html et cetera
 +
 +     Also, its important to note if you want to host say
 +     '​foo.com'​ and you also have a CNAME such as '​www.foo.com'​
 +     ​you'​ll see that '​mkvhost'​ makes both a '​foo.com'​ and
 +     a '​www.foo.com'​ directory.
 +
 +     This is fine if you want content to differ .. however,
 +     you probably don'​t. ​ In order to help you by not having
 +     to duplicate your storage, you can make one of the directories
 +     a symbolic link by doing the following:
 +
 +     $ cd $HOME/html
 +     $ rm -rf www.foo.com ​         # be sure its empty or backed up!
 +     $ ln -s foo.com www.foo.com
 +
 +     Now you can put all your files in the directory '​foo.com'​ and
 +     they show up when you access '​www.foo.com'​ as well as '​foo.com'​
