A virtual host configuration consists of the IP address of the virtual host, the port number to be associated with the hosted domains, and one or more domain names (FQDNs) to be hosted by the IP address.
A virtual host is a single machine that acts like multiple systems, hosting more than one domain. For example, an ISP could use one server with IP address 188.8.131.52 to host two Web sites on the same port: www.merchantA.com and www.merchantB.com.
By creating a virtual host configuration you ensure that the scanning engine analyzes all domains associated with an IP address, possibly increasing the number of vulnerabilities detected.
Go to VM/VMDR > Assets > Virtual Hosts. Create a new virtual host from the New menu or edit an existing virtual host from the Quick Actions menu. You can add 5000 virtual hosts in your subscription.
When the VM application is enabled for the subscription, all Managers can create and edit virtual host configurations. Other users must be granted these extended permissions in their user account: Manage VM and Create/edit virtual hosts.
