the process of being made or access via the shared SSL.
The problem with this is that data transfer is not logged under 'username's
account and it actually gets logged to the master hostname transfer usage.
This is no problem for temporary DNS use or SSL use but it has recently come
to light that some users are using this method in the long term as way of using
more data transfer than they have available on their package. This is also
known as bandwidth theft.
Therefore some of hosting companies (we too) have to disabled this

Denis thank you I didn't know that.
In order to disable this feature you have to disable the mod_userdir module in your Apache configuration file.For reliable shared and reseller hosting, visit RadixHosting.

Does it mean, once domain is fully propagated, then the web hosting company will need to disable the feature so that there will be no cases of bandwidth theft?
let say, the web hosting company has disabled the feature, what will the user see if the user tries to access using http://youipaddress/~userid/ again?

I think that is obvious and very possible . I think the user will get a normal not found message or domain not configured or something like that.█ For Reliable and Affordable Web Hosting Packages, Please visit kooshin.com

Well just stumbled upon this and learned something new. I never knew about bandwith theft and this is interesting. I may have to disable this on my server I just bought.

This is a very bad way of bandwidth theft. You can spot this kind of behaviour in your logs.
