Apps that need/don't need own subdomain

Hi there,

After trying out if i can manage to get my domain hoster (allinkl) working together with my vserver I want to install some more software.

As for every subdomain i have to enter 3 new dns entries i would like to avoid using subdomains for every single app.

So my question - to which i couldn’t find an answer myself so far: can the app list somehow be filtered to see which one can be used without needing their own subdomain ( , yunohost,org/app2 etc.) and which ones need their own subdomain ( ?
Or is there another way, list or something that shows which apps needs what?

have a good day

I have no direct solution for you, but YunoHost use this library to automatically configure DNS when there is an API : GitHub - AnalogJ/lexicon: Manipulate DNS records on various DNS providers in a standardized way.
So one solution could be to see if allinkl have an API.
If yes : ask lexicon to add it
If no : ask them to implement one, and then ask lexicon to add it

Don’t do that, it’s less secure.

Web browsers firewall sites by origin, so if every application is running on a different domain, a security flaw in one application will not necessarily allow exploitation of all of the other applications.

If you run multiple applications on a single domain, then there’s no sandboxing between them, and therefore, say, an XSS vulnerability in your file sharing application might allow exfiltrating your forum’s passwords.
