Forward Mail From Parked Domain To Primary Domain - How? MX Record?
May 6, 2007
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?
Can a domain be parked on an addon domain in a cPanel server?
At first thought I do not see it as a problem as a ServerAlias directive for the parked inside the addon domain Virtual Host container inside httpd.conf is all is required but cPanel may not allow for all it's wisdom.
Let me know if cPanel would pose a problem or wouldn't allow this scenario.
I have a domain hosted which is the primary domain with all its file hosted, it also has its own email accounts setup.
I now have another domain, i want to make the new domain the primary domain for the account which is hosting my website and the previous domain to be parked on top of it - this is with the use of cPanel.
Now from what ive experienced i should be able to use and setup email accounts from within cPanel from both domains.
This is my question.
The previous domain already has email accounts setup, if i make the switch and make it a parked domain onto the new primary domain will i still be able to retain the same email accounts/passwords/email?
e.g. if i have email@[url]after the switch i want email@[url]to be under the new primary account[url]
I got a new dedicated server, and I put the primary domain name to be zeonwebhosting.com.
However, when I setup the nameservers, and go to GoDaddy.com and NameCheap.com to change the nameservers on my domains, I get an "Errors were detected" on GoDaddy.com and a "nRRPResponseCode 531" on NameCheap.
I fixed everything in WHM and got a server administrator to fix some things for me, and it didn't work yet. Now I am thinking that the problem might not be with the server, but with the domain.
ZeonWebHosting.com is registered at GoDaddy.com, and since I was not sure what nameservers I should put as it is the primary domain name, I used the parked nameservers on GoDaddy, and used the Total DNS feature to change the A and MX Records to point to my server's IPs.
I tried putting the ns1.zeonwebhosting.com and ns2.zeonwebhosting.com DNSs on GoDaddy, but still I got the "Errors were detected" error. I tried almost everything possible. I even redid cPanel just to make sure that everything was OK with the cPanel configuration.
Also there is another problem with the server. I can't seem to be able to delete Nameservers from "Networking Setup > Nameserver IPs" in WHM. I get this message when trying to delete one of the nameservers: "Sorry, the nameserver ip 22.214.171.124 cannot be removing since it is still registered with an ICANN register."
I have a hostee who as part of an out-of-court settlement, needs to change the primary domain they host on. The domain they're switching to is already a parked domain on their account. At first blush, it seems like it would be pretty easy, but now I'm concerned about their email. Both of the principals of the company use Horde extensively for webmail, and as such I have files on the server for their email accounts. What I was thinking about doing is this:
1. Stop parking the "new" domain on the account. 2. Change the account from using the "old" domain in WHM to the "new" domain by modifying the account in WHM. 3. Forwarding email sent to email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org, in CPanel. 4. Assorted changes on website to account for the new domain - published email addresses, new SSL cert, things like that.
My concern is in how to move the mail files, currently set up to be for email@example.com, to be readable by Horde as firstname.lastname@example.org, so it's seamless to the users. We will be keeping the old domain under our control, but not using it to point to the site any more; I just don't want to have to tell them "OK, to get your old email, you have to check this address, and to get new email, you have to check this one."
Would my plan above actually accomplish that? Is there a better way within a WHM/CPanel framework to accomplish what I need without losing email or access to it? What am I missing?
II just transfered domain hosting from my clients old host to my server. The new website is up-and-running without problems. At his request, I use a MX --> A redirect to send his mail to his local server at his business, where he wishes to receive it. It is setup as follows:
Main domain (xyz.net) MX ->> extmail.xyz.net. extmail "A" ->> 99.99.999.99 (at the clients local server)
Here is the PROBLEM. The client has a secondary parked account that just directs to the main account. The client has email MX forwarding from that account, which does not seem to be forwarding correctly after this changeover described above --- it is not being delivered.
Question: Do I have to change the MX pointer at the secondary domain to point ->> to extmail.xyz.net? it is currently set to point to mail.xyz.net.
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 126.96.36.199:21.
