Domain Name Server (DNS) Redirection / Setting Up Zone(s)

Oct 24, 2007

I have a quick question about some DNS zones I'm trying to set up for a customer. I figured I would try asking the community before bugging our top-level admins (they have enough to do already, and I'd rather learn this myself).

We have a customer for whom we are managing their DNS. The site is actually hosted elsewhere, but the DNS originates on our server.

They have another site that is hosted with us, and they would like to set up a subdomain redirect from the remotely-hosted site to the site hosted on our hardware. So, the situation looks something like this: : hosted elsewhere (primary IP not ours), DNS with us : redirect this to

I could edit httpd.conf, but it would be easiest (for firewall reasons at the moment) if I could enter in the proper zones via WHM zone editor. I'll be able to see the results either way. I tried setting up the 'A' and 'CNAME' records, and I got as far as directing the 'A' records for the subdomain to the local IP, but I'm not sure how to finish it off (assuming I'm going down the right path). My own knowledge level in this regard is somewhere between novice and intermediate (which is why I have partners and admins ).

Domain Redirection

Dec 8, 2007

My company provides free websites using an automated website builder we designed years ago. We also offer a option where members can add a domain name to their site. Because all our members pages are generated dynamically by the web builder script, when member adds the domain name option we simply add a DNS entry that includes an A record that directs the domain name to the IP address of the account on the server where the web builder is installed. All domains point to the same script and that script looks the domain up in a database table and gets the web page data for that website. = /home/webbuilder/public_html/index.php = /home/webbuilder/public_html/index.php

We are about to launch a new website builder that is not database-driven but includes a sub-directory for each member site. So, I need to find a way to redirect each member's domain to their sub-directory = /home/webbuilder/public_html/member/m/membersite1 = /home/webbuilder/public_html/member/m/membersite2

I thought I could do with mod_rewrite in a .htaccess file in /home/webbuilder/public_html:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [NC]
RewriteRule ^/(.*) ^/member/m/membersite1/$1 [L]

But it's not working. The .htaccess file has no impact at all.

.htaccess fle working? Or is there another, better way to point a domain name to a sub-directory?

SEO Friendly Domain Redirection

Jun 25, 2008

We have a website hosted with 1and1 Internet and want to keep it like that with its current domain name

However we have registered a new domain name with 123-Reg, which is, because 1and1 Internet dont allow you to register domains

We want to switch to using the domain as the main domain but keep the website with 1and1.

Is there a search engine friendly and invisible way of using the domain by somehow redirecting visitors, without the domain name switching visibly in the browser?

IIS Transparent Server-side Redirection

Sep 18, 2008

I've been asked to find a way to host our intranet externally without opening up the network.

The webserver accessible to the public domain is within an dmz. The intranet I need to serve is within our internal network.

I've managed to convince our network admin to open port 80 on the server running the intranet but I can't seem to find a way to proxy the content from the intranet server, through the webserver and to the user.

Apache :: Multiple Server Redirection

Jul 16, 2015

Our servers has been updated recently and my site is not working properly. It was working before the server change. When I click on the links, it doesn't update correctly, instead it gets the last cached data. I have to refresh each link for it to update which shouldn't be the case. I'm a front-end and have no access to servers. Could this be server-related?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Failed Domain Creation - Unable To Restore DNS Zone

Aug 18, 2014

I have a VPS running Plesk 11.x and yesterdady I tried adding a new domain to my subscription and received this error:

Error: Unable to update domain data: Unable to restore the DNS zone: an error occurred while adding the DOMAINNAME IN A DOMAINNAME record: Incorrect DNS record values were specified.

I have one subscription and under that a few domains. I've not had any DNS issues before so I'm a little stumped as to where to start looking. I suspect DNS template issues but I'm not that au fait with the DNS template so I don't want to start fiddling. My service provider suggested I look at [URL] ... which doesn't appear to be related as I have no duplicate domains under my subscription.

Following on from this the VPS is my personal server and I host a few sites for friends consequently I only have the one subscription. I've been advised that I should have one subscription per domain. Is that correct information?

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.

Setting Up Domain With Lighthttpd

Jun 9, 2009

its been long time since I have set one and its been really bugging with the feather theme interface, which I haven't used before

now, here is the pt.

I have 3 ips , I want the main ip to be unique
i.e assuming .2, .3 and .4 are the the ips we have ben provided with, where .2 is the main ip of the server (lxadmin)

now, in the dns template, I have 6 options where ip has to be assigned, as -
base, cp, mail, ns, ns1, ns2

I have set the base,cp, mail, ips to .3

I don't have a clue on what to set for the ns, ns1, ns2

I want .3 to be shown as the pinged ip when site is pinged.

We have set .3 and .4 as the nameserver ips in the registrar, so do I need to provide .3 as the ns1 ip and .4 as the ns2 ips or both the ips have to be .3
and what should be the ns ip?

DNS And Domain- Setting Up DNS With DirectAdmin

Jul 23, 2009

I've got DirectAdmin installed, and my domain name ( hosted with

I'm wondering how I set up my DNS so that whenever I point more domains to my VPS their DNS will be set to and

Would it be as simple as pointing my domain to my VPS IP, then setting up this in DirectAdmin?:

Add Zone
Domain Name:
IP Address:
Name Server 1:
Name Server 2:

Would I enter:
Add Zone
Domain Name:
IP Address:
Name Server 1:
Name Server 2:

Then point my domain to, and set it up my domain at like so:

Add New Child Name Server
Host Name:
Ip Address:


Add New Child Name Server
Host Name:
Ip Address:

Would this work? I'm looking to do a quick shift from my old CPS (LXAdmin) to my new VPS (DirectAdmin) with at little downtime as possible. Do I need to set up any other records for the domain for my email accounts to work, or would DirectAdmin take care of all this?

I have recently just purchased an unmanaged vps from poundhost. I have never used a vps before so we shelled out for a WHM control panel! The issue now is that we do not have a nameserver set up or any main domain to use as a nameserver.

We have the main IP address and two additional IP's given to us by poundhost, how do I use these to start hosting and managing websites?

Setting Up A Site In A .local Domain

Jun 10, 2008

I have a web server running Server 2003 and IIS6. I can access everything fine via IP. Now I want to have a domain name work with it.

The server is in a .local domain environment. Does anyone have any info on how I should setup DNS for the web server if the domain itself is not getting any DNS info from the outside?

Is it just a matter of adding new A and NS records or do I need to be in a FQDN domain for it to work?

Setting Up New Domain With Hosting Package

Jul 7, 2008

I ordered a domain from Name and a shared hosting package from Hawk Host. How do I set them up so they work together? I thought all I had to do was add the Hawk Host name servers to my Name account but that doesn't seem to be helping. I don't have any webpages up yet but I do have some files uploaded to be used as a redirect for a game server. The redirect isn't loading properly most of the time and when I type my domain name into a browser my directory won't show up either, just the parking page. I ordered both of these last week.
