Can I scan my virtual hosts?



Yes, you can scan virtual hosts in a name-based virtual host configuration. Scanning virtual hosts happens transparently once a virtual host configuration is set up in your account. Multiple configurations may be added to support scanning multiple web servers.


Please note that a virtual host configuration must be set up by your account manager (you cannot set up this type of configuration yourself). Just send an email request to your account manager with the IP address of your web server, the list of its associated FQDNs, and the ports on which the web server is handling these FQDNs (80, 443, ...).


Once your email is received, your account manager will set up the virtual host configuration. The next time you run a scan on the IP address of your web server, QualysGuard automatically performs vulnerability assessment on HTTPS services for all associated FQDNs.
