Search Engines Continue To Pickup Domain Used For Forwarding

Jan 10, 2008

We have a bunch of domains we use to forward into various locations on our site, so for instance: [url] would forward to [url].

I am currently running a Windows 2k3 Server with IIS6. The way I achieve these forwards is to set up another site, put the forwarding domain in the host header, then have it forward out to my desired directory. However, now Google has been picking up my forwarding domains with their robots, and getting addresses like [url],
which does not exist, just [url]does, so people are getting returned a lot of 404 errors.

How can I stop this? Am I setting up the domain forwarding wrong?

Change Host, Change Domain And Getting Search Engines Up To Speed

Feb 5, 2008

Has anyone helped clients transition from one domain to another? Maybe dissolving a partnership or renaming their company... so a new domain name has been registered and a new website created.

2 Issues:

#1 Using .htaccess 301 redirect
We used the following command line in their old website's htaccess file

Redirect 301 / [url]

The goal was to get people try to visit any page of their old website (i.e. redirected to their new website (i.e. Isn't that supposed to change the address bar's URL, too? For some reason, I visit their old site and I seem to be redirected to their new website but the address bar still has their old domain name? Something is going on???

#2 Having their new company name for 2 years now. People can enter her new company name in Google, MSN or Yahoo. Her new company name appears in the search results but has the old domain name associated with it. We are trying to get rid of any reference to that old domain name? What's the easiest way to do this? So what people see in search engines is:

New Company
Short Meta Description

What steps did I miss in this transition?

What steps do I have to take on their old website/old web server to control it's appearance on search engines and make sure people get to the new website?

Search Engines And Pinging

Apr 15, 2008

I have a hardware firewall on my server that does not allow pinging or trace routes from anyone outside the vpn.

So, pinging my server or a website on it will return a "request time out" for each try even though the websites come up fine and connectivity is fine.

I'm told this is for enhanced security but it's also my understanding that search engines and some programs will ping a site before attempting to crawl it or index a page on it. I guess this saves time and bandwidth for the search engine bot.

Is this true? and is there a security risk for opening my firewall to allow pinging?

Shared Hosting And Search Engines

Apr 29, 2008

I have heard that using shared hosting accounts is risky for search engine rankings because if one site on the server breaks the rules then the whole server can be penalized. Is there a cheap type of hosting package that provides the same functionality and does not share the same IP with hundreds of other sites?

Domain Forwarding Vs. Domain Parking

May 18, 2009

I am moving content from old.domain to new.domain

However I am at the same time retaining the old.domain to keep the older links working

I want that the old.domain/link redirect to new.domain/link

Please advice what would be best to do for the old.domain -

1) Domain forwarding
2) Domain parking

or Both the above

(The other thing is that I would like to do 301 redirect - would this happen automatically by activating the above options - or something else has to be done)

Setting Up Domain Forwarding?

Dec 26, 2005

I've taken a reseller account from ResellerZOOM which came with WHM/cPanel. I've my own private nameservers(meaning I got my own IP). I've a domain that I want to be forwarded to my blog, just like domain registrars offer domain forwarding but the registrar I registered my domain with doesn't give domain forwarding. so I was thinking that maybe I can point the domain to my nameservers & then have it forwarded to my blog. The thing is that I haven't used WHM before & I don't know how to do it, create some DNS zone maybe!!

The only way I know is to create an account for that domain, allot it some diskspace & then redirect via .htaccess file, which would be overkill IMHO. I know it can be done without creating an account, some other way.

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Domain Forwarding With HTAccess

Jun 14, 2014

I have re-built a website on a new domain. Now I want to redirect or http://olddomain.anything to www.newdomain. Because the file structure is totally different, I want all redirections to go to the Home Page of newdomain.

Initially, I used Standard forwarding in the Plesk CP but that attempts to keep the filename the same. So tries to go to But wibble dies not exist on the new domain.

Should I use htaccess with physical hosting instead on Is the following correct?:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ [R=301,L]

Will that basically cover any request? Anything that people have saved or which appears in Google searches, no matter whether http:// or http://www.

And for neatness on the new domain, I would like to add www to any request like to go to which I think means that Google analytics will report more accurately.

So would my htaccess file on be like this?:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Standard Domain Forwarding Does Not Forward Https Connections

Jun 7, 2009

We have a mail account that has over 12,000 emails in it, when we try to search it will either bring back no results or time out. My question is how can i search for an email in the account or is there anything i can install on my Linux - CENTOS 5.3 i686- cPanel 11.24.4-S36281 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9 server?

I will need to search the subject or body of the emails and need it to return results back to me when it has anything matching what i want it to search for. We have tried using the email clients that cPanel provides but like i said they either bring no results or show an error. What can we use or install to do what we need? I have full shell access if theres a way of doing it through that.

New Host Search

Oct 22, 2007

I'm sure you hear this often, but I'm on the search for a new hosting company. Earlier this year my products site switched to a db driven website with a forum. When I made the site change I had to change my hosting company I had for 3 years. Under suggestion for the webmaster I switched to midphase. When I did things started out good. Than came the down time. Each time they said I had to may users on the db. I started out at $10 a month. After several plan upgrades I'm at a $80 a month vps. I would be ok with the $80, but more times than not the site is sluggish even when the resources are not 1/3 of their capacities. After reading some of the threads on this site it seems a vps is not that good? The idea behind the vps sounded good to me. But I'm wondering if I should go back to a shared host. On a good day there may be about 30 people on the forum and about 30 people surfing the products.

How To Search If An IP Is Blacklisted In My Server

Apr 10, 2009

I'm having a problem with a client (X) which doesn't receive emails from one of his clients(Y). After few days of talking with Y hosting company I wasn't able to solve the broblem, but told from them to check if their IP is blocked in my server (which I'm sure it isn't).

My first question is where to check for blacklisted IP which blocks email, and not HTTP request ...

Is there a different place than /etc/apf/deny_hosts.rules .. is there a file in exim configuration ?

I have a linux server with WHM 11.24.2.


The error that Y client receives when sending mail to X is:

Server Response: '550 5.0.0 <>... User unknown', Port:
25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

I'm very sure that if Y's IP was blocked he shouldn't receive that error.

What I belive is that there are some DNS problems, because X client was hosted on the same company as Y, now few years ago, and I belive that when moving X to my server, the other hosting company didn't deleted all DNS records .. and that's why Y clients get the error user unknown. Is it correct what I'm suppose ?

Is There A Way To Search Through MySQL Databases

Mar 9, 2007

I am running a dedicated server with Debian, and I installed a community sofware that has a lot of mySQL entries, many of which need to be changed to fit my needs

However, it is very hard to know exactly where each value I need to change is stored. Is there a way to search all database tables for a specific value?

For example, one thing that is stored in the database is the site's title displayed in the browser's title bar. The sofware does not give me the option to change it, so I have to find where it is located in the database and change it myself, but it would be extremely time comsuming to check all tables one by one for any occurences of the current title.
