Domain Root And Subdomain Structure

Jun 22, 2008

I am a bit confused about domain and sub-domain setup for my website.

I have Wordpress and VBulletin Forum on my website like this:


Right now, my domain points to this folder:

I have a .htaccess file there which redirects it to the wordpress folder i.e.
Redirect permanent /index.php
DirectoryIndex index.php

But, I would like my domain name point directly to the wordpress folder like this:

But the problem when i do that is my "VBulletin" forum get's messed up because then:
[url]----------resolves to--------->

I m thinking to resolve this issues, I will have to add a subdomain for forums like this:
[url]-> [url]

But I am wondering if I do that, won't it fail again, because it will do this:
[url]-----will resolve to----->

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Adding Subdomain To Forwarding Root Domain

Apr 23, 2015

I want to add a subdomain to a master domain in the subscription Normally this works but if I set the hosting type of the master domain to forward, I cannot add subdomains anymore. If I have already added a subdomain, I cannot change the hosting type of the master domain. Also it is not possible to add a second domain to the subscription anymore.

Transfering To New Domain And Keeping Content Structure

Apr 22, 2007

what's the most practical way to move ALL the content from one domain to another in terms of keeping decent search ranking as well as forwarding to the new domain.

So like say the current URL is:


And I want it to be:


So if you went to the version it'd automatically forward to the version and then the search engines would pick up on that and update the URL.

I've got full control over all the DNS zones, nameservers, etc whatever is the best option I can do it. I just don't know what that best option is.

Moved Content From Root To Subdomain And Need To Redirect Visitors

Mar 16, 2007

I moved my content from www,mysite,com to subdomain,mysite,com. I'd like to direct people who come to my site from search engines to the new location of the content.

For example, if they searched for pink purse and the search result was www,mysite,com/pink_purse,html, when they click that link, I'd like for them to redirected to subdomain,mysite,com/pink_purse.html. Can this be accomplished with some .htaccess magic?

Can I have a primary domain - - point to another primary domain - - but then have the entry point for that domain be a subdomain -

If the primary domain is parked somewhere else, doesn't it mean that all the subdomains will be too? Or do I use a 301 on the primary domain to the site? But does that then redirect all the subdomains too?

Add-on Domain And Subdomain

Jul 19, 2007

Let's say my domain, for which I have shared hosting, is

I have also registered the domain

My hosting has cPanel

I add as an add-on domain.

Inside my root folder the folder /public_html/yourdomain/ is created.

When I create the subdomain, the folder /public_html/subdomain/ is created instead of /public_html/yourdomain/subdomain/

Can I assign the /public_html/yourdomain/subdomain/ folder to be the root of
e.g. I have the file image.jpg at /public_html/yourdomain/subdomain/image.jpg and it's accessed from

Is this possible?

Having a lot of folders directly under /public_html/ would get annoying for me.

Root Domain

May 20, 2009

I have a server that I have a few domains on, and I have a question about the root domain. I initially picked any old domain, so now all of my name servers are pointing to this one random domain. I have since purchased a few more premium domains, and am wondering if I should change the nameservers to be the more premium domains? Does this matter? Should I have my "main site" be the root domain? Just trying to understand what the implications could be for me.

Googlebot Root Domain

Aug 2, 2008

I am just wondering whether my idea will work for the google search engine.

Basically, I have my official VPS root (home/admin/public_html/) and this is where my main website will be hosted. However, since my VPS will be used for additional website, I will direct additional domains to it.

My second site hosted on this VPS may have a document root of (home/admin/public_html/advertising/). And my domain will then be setup to have that as its document root.

However, when google searches for my second site (e.g. will it go 'below' the domain root? For example, will it also creep the files under /public_html/ for this domain, even though the domains root is /public_html/advertising/?

edit: Or do people host multiple sites differently? Is this an appropriate method?

Subdomain To Main Domain Moving

Jan 23, 2007

I have a domain name as per my sig. I am also creating a subdomain totally in contrast with that site below. My primary domain has one page on it so i would like to:

a) delete the one page on my primary domain

b) Make the contents of my subdomain my primary domain. e.g my domain is, my sub will be would like to make : make sense, as really the sub will be my main site.

Basically wanting to transfer the contents of my sub to my primary. So when people click, it will be the sub's site. Another thing to note is that i am using RVsitebuilder (WYSIWYG) that my web host provides. Also BEAR IN MIND the WYSIWYG editor does not allow me to move pages (sucks) or to copy the page contents.

Htaccess - Moving Site From Subdomain To New Domain

Oct 21, 2007

I have what I think is kind of a unique situation with a site move and Google is not turning up an answer that seems to work.

My site is currently in this format:

And I am "moving" it but also switching from html to php, so the same file would be found at:

I want to redirect users going to the old pages to their equivalent on the new site, however this is a little bit of a problem because this is a normal subdomain - it is the same directory as before but now there are php versions of the html files.

Right now I have all of the http files redirecting to their php equivilents, but I don't believe this is a desirable solution. Also it creates a problem when people go to (not indicating a specific file; just the subdir root) because I have redirecting to

Quite a mess.

My first option is to put the redirects in the htaccess file on the "old" site. But is this a problem because there are over 500 pages on the site? Does it create a heavy server load because any requests force the server to serve a huge htaccess file?

The next alternative seems the most preferable although I'm not sure how to do it. It seems it could use wildcards so that anyone going to *.html gets directed to *.php or something like that. The only problem is that there are a small number of files that were removed completely and do not have php equivilants (about 5 or 6) and would need to redirect to the index.php in the root

Can Other Hosted Sites Be Access Through Your Domain/subdomain

Sep 10, 2007

I'm using a shared host that provides good service and support, but there's one major issue I discovered recently:

Other sites hosted on their server are accessible through my domains and subdomain. For example:

Account2 on their server can be accessed through:


Host says:

"Because everything is Name-based, apache decides what directory is going to be used based upon the name that is provided. However, because the username is valid, it treats it as a vaild URL and redirects it to your site. There is no security issue, as this is just the way apache’s configuration works."

Is it really normal? Does the same happen on all apache servers? I think SE's would treat the other pages as mine, no?
