What is a Dual Hostname Environment?
By default, the Anchor and Apache services are installed on one server with one shared domain (for example, https://file.syncapp.com), and run on the localhost. Port 443 can only be used by one service. Under these default settings, port 443 is reserved for the Anchor service, and ports 80 and 510 are reserved for the Apache service.
As an alternative to this configuration, Anchor and Apache can be configured to use two separate domains (or use a domain and a subdomain, such as http://SyncApp.com and http://web.SyncApp.com).
Why is a Dual Hostname Environment Important to Private Cloud Partners?
Under a dual host configuration, both the Anchor service and the Apache service can allow external connections on 443, which improves security.
