Can Your Hosting Address Be Seen When You Forward A Domain?
Feb 10, 2006
For example, if I forward my business domain abcproducts.com to my domain where I have my hosting, myname.com, is it possible for people to see where my business domain is forwarding to. Basically, I am doing a business website, but I don't want anyone to be able to see that it actually is forwarding to a folder on my main myname.com where I have my hosting. I am masking it, so it will only show abcproducts.com, but I am wondering if even the "tech saavy" has tools to figure this out. I just don't want anyone to be able to see this.
Like, I know how sites like DNSreport.com show all kinds of stuff on the domain. Is there something like this that people can use to see if domains forward?
I have a dedicated server with cPanel/WHM and on it is a site with for example user name: domain
The main email user name is of course domain I'd also like to forward email@example.com to the domain user account then any other emails would fail. So say if someone sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org it would fail unless of course I had an account setup.
Currently I can get email@example.com to foward to the main account box, however in doing so it will also forward everything else.
OK, I am confused. I have one domain that is parked on top of another domain. I would like Mail that comes to the parked domain to be automatically forwarded to the same user name at the primary domain.
Can I change a DNS or MX record to facilitate this?
I have a domain setup on my Plesk 8.6.0 powered webserver which is being forwarded to a specific IP provided by my costumer, all DNS zone records are inserted accordingly and everything works fine.
Due to a problem with the ISP that provides the fixed IP on my costumerÃ¢ÂÄÂôs server he now wants to get a second IP from a different ISP, for the same webserver, to function as a secondary route onto his server .....
i have a domain hosted at eNom which i would like to point to my FTP server which is running on my box at home. I have a static IP, and BulletProof FTP server installed. Now im just unclear how i can have www.mydomain.com point to 22.214.171.124:21.
Forwarding a domain (incl. subdirectories/subdomains) to the same URL
I'm looking for a provider which can offer a service similar to mydomain.com, I should be able to add an unlimited number of domains to forward on external urls in a way which should point anything-you-digit.myname.com and myname.com/anything-you-digit to the same destination url If the service might also allow to add title, keywords and description for each domain, this would be even better but not required.
MyDomain can offer all this but there's a fee for each added domain while we'd prefer paying a monthly fee for a single hosting where adding multiple domains.
I need a company to register my domain, and then forward emails and urls to my actual site that is somewhere else. I don't need any actual web hosting or email pop (at the moment). My main requirement is reliability.
The company I currently use bounces some email to me and forwards other email to a black hole. They're also not replying to my mail, so it's time to leave. BTW, this is a company that has generally excellent reviews.
URL....We are running Plesk 12 on a Linux VPS where we have multiple domains running.Multiple of these domains should redirect from www. domain name. ext to https://ext.domainname.com.This is configured with the Domain forwarding in Plesk, with hosting type Forwarding.But as described in the 2 links provided above, whenever you go to https://www.domain.ext, it does not redirect, and actually shows a Security error, since the domain doesn't have the SSL-certificate installed (because it should redirect to the https://ext.domainname.com).
Clearly we don't want visitors on the website to receive the (incorrect) Security error, and we want all traffic to http(s)://www.domain.ext to be redirected to the appropriate subdomains. allows us to redirect both the https/http connections to the domains, without forcing us to have the domains have a Website hosting add redirect them manually with (for example) .htaccess.
thinking about adding web hosting to my reseller account. Can anyone tell me the difference between an IP address and a domain. If they are different who actually owns the domain and who owns the IP address?
I'm moving from shared to dedicated hosting. I've added an account and used ftp and phpmyadmin to copy over a WordPress installation. I would like to test this installation before re-directing the name servers, but I'm having no luck.
If I browse to 12.34.567.890/whm, I get the Web Host Manager. If I browse to 12.34.567.890, I get the "Great Success! Apache is working on your cPanel and WHM server" page. If I browse to /anything_else, (e.g., /wp-admin, /index.php, etc.) I get a 404 message.
Is there any way I can test this application (and others) using the IP address, or am I going to have to change the DNS and navigate to mydomain.com?
However, the default web page is blank. Now my site has been DDoSed for the last 3 days. Does this mean they are attacking the site from the IP, because I do see many genuine access to the correct Vhost but no body should access the site via the IP.
Especially... why is the client, my on server ip that accesses?
I am running plesk 9.2. I need to move one domain from the shared IP to dedicated IP. How do I do that? My server vendor has already allocated the IP addresses to me and I can see the unused IPs in the Ip address pool. How can I change the ip of suppose; mydomain.com from 126.96.36.199(shared) to 188.8.131.52(dedicated)?
I want to register a domain from some organization. During the registration the registrar asks me to provide a primary DNS with an IP address and a secondary DNS with an IP address.
Because I have already a website with a godaddy hosting, I want that may new domain also points to my godaddy hosting. So I have to provide the DNS of my godaddy hosting to the domain registration company.
But my question is; Which IP address do they require? Do they ask me the IP address of my DNSís (NS43.DOMAINCONTROL.COM, NS44.DOMAINCONTROL.COM) or the IP address of the server on which my website is running.
I am having the hardest time binding my domain name to my Apache server. If I use the IP address, I can access it just fine even outside of my network. But when I try to bind my domain name to that exact same IP address it just does not work.
I am running Apache 2.0.64 on Windows 8 and my domain name is registered at Name.com. I have contacted them to and I am awaiting a response but they are really backlogged right now and I thought it wouldn't hurt to post here as well. Besides, I thought it might have something to do with my Apache config file anyways and I wanted to make sure.
I have what seems to be a simple redirect question. I have a dedicated server and a few static IP addresses, but I want to make it so if someone were to type in my IP address in their browser, Apache will redirect them to the domain name. (Typing in [url]
What happens now is that if you were to type in my server's IP address, it will show you the FIRST VirtualHost container that's listed in httpd.conf. This is not so bad since I've placed my main company site at the start of the list, but I'd rather redirect the IP into the domain name I use.
I read somewhere that you can place Mod RewriteRules directly in the VirtualHost container rather than using .htaccess, but the few "rules" that I tried didn't seem to do anything. And yes, I restarted Apache each time I edited httpd.conf.
Is there an easy way to do this?
ALSO, is there a way to redirect the name server address too? If you type in [url]into the browser, it acts the same way. I would ultimately like to redirect both the nameservers and the IP address(es) to the domain name.
