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.

membersite1.com = /home/webbuilder/public_html/index.php
membersite2.com = /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

membersite1.com = /home/webbuilder/public_html/member/m/membersite1
membersite2.com = /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} ^membersite1.com [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 www.companyname.com

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

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

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

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:

example.com : hosted elsewhere (primary IP not ours), DNS with us
FooSite.example.com : redirect this to www.FooSite.com

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 ).

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?

MX Record Domain Has Expired

Feb 25, 2008

I have a site mydomain-name.com that is running and the mail server for it was mail.mydomain-name.org

However the mydomain-name.org has expired and I don't want to renew it. I just want to use the .com domain and have the mail use mail.mydomain-name.com

So i created the MX records for the .com domain .. Now my question is do i have to also contact my registar for the domain and ask them to update their records so that now it points to the new MX?

I am really new at this stuff so please bare with me.. when i do an nslookup in DOS it still shows the .org as my mail server.

mydomain-name.com MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.mydomain-name.org

Is this something that needs to be changed at the registrar level?

Difference Between A Cname Record And A Domain Pointer

Dec 17, 2006

I am seriously confused mainly because of the way it was explained in my training at work. Can someone please give me an explantion of the difference between creating a cname record and using a domain pointer? My understanding is that they both effectively do the same thing which is allow one ip address to be used for different domains.

Extra marks given for an easy to understand analogy as i'm definately a visual learner.

Can I Point MX Record For Third-party Domain To Yahoo Small Biz Mail?

Jul 16, 2009

My client has a domain registered at GoDaddy and a Yahoo Small Business email package.

The only info I can find on Yahoo suggests I need to redelegate the domain's name servers to Yahoo, and I'd rather not do this if I can help it.

Is it possible to simply leave the name servers at GoDaddy and point the MX record to Yahoo's servers?

I don't see anything on Yahoo saying it won't work, but then I see nothing to suggest it will either!

Subdomain Redirection

Mar 30, 2007

Although I'm able to redirect my subdomain to the /htdocs/subdomain directory using a php script, but the URL changes from [url]to [url]

And since I'm on windows, htaccess doesn't seem to work for me. Tried adding VirtualHost thingy into httpd.conf but then Apache doesn't start with it.

Is there any way to redirect [url]to /htdocs/subdir without changing the URL?

Sub Domains And And Ip Address Redirection

Jul 8, 2009

I have two servers with two different ip address in two different physical location.

eg

server A - 202.44.33.1 - domain.com
server B - 192.33.55.3 - abc.domain.com

what i would like to do is redirect people coming to abc.domain.com to ip address 192.33.55.3 instead of the conventional 202.44.33.1/abc/

can this be done ? If so how ? I know it can be done but i am not sure how or what the technical term for such a service would be ? and the actual steps involved in creating a redirection like this.

Virtual Host Redirection

Apr 30, 2008

explain our setup.

We have an in house centOS linux developer box running apache 2.x

We have our own on-site router/switch setup etc.

We host our external website whatever.com with Networksolutions

On our whatever.com DNS (via network solutions). We have our domain subscriber.whatever.com pointing to our external IP address. subscriber.whatever.com -> xx.xx.xx.xx

In our router configuration we have subscriber.whatever.com forwarding to our CentOS linux development box. it's forwarding to the internal network IP address 10.xx.xx.xx

However we want the box to redirect someone when they come in on subscriber.whatever.com... We basically want it to redirect them to subscriber.whatever.com:port/folder/

Preferably masked so that all someone would see is subscriber.whatever.com but they're actually at subscriber.whatever.com:port/folder/

Unfortunately network solutions's setup won't allow us to easily do this so we have to do it somehow locally.

Anyone have any suggestions? I've got this working on the box itself (if you goto the site on the box via gnome) however externally or on another system on our internal network it's a no go.

Weird Redirection When Typing Url

Feb 9, 2008

if you type in the browser

Code:
neomagician.com
it redirects to

Code:
[url]
ok no problem there. but when you type

Code:
neomagician.com/forum
OR
[url]
it redirects to the hostname

Code:
[url]
where you promptly receive a 404 error.

BUT, if you type

Code:
[url]
(note the forward slash on the end)
it works just fine.

If you type a nonexistent file or folder it only 404s on the domain name and no redirection occurs.

Alteon LB And SSL Redirection Loop

Aug 8, 2008

I am having an issue with one of our sites sitting behind an alteon load balancer. Basically, when people try to checkout from a store it redirects to https. Well, this gets stuck in a loop and never responds. If you go to https directly it works fine till you try and check out.

Flow is like this 443->loadbalancer->81 apache web server.

Anyway, I think it has something to do with the session getting lost. I've read some on proxying but I am not sure how to get it working.

Unexpected Site Redirection

Aug 20, 2008

My site prime357 . org is being unexpectedly, from time to time, re-directed to my host's site DrupalValueHosting.com.

It has now been a few weeks and this problem still remains. I have not set up any purpose re-direction to my host site. My .htaccess file has no reference to my host site.

My host, the other day, suggested that I change my site, temporarily, to prime357.net, whilst he (the host) works on the problem as to why prime357.org is directing to the host site.

Re-direction to my host site is still occurring.

I established that a few hours ago that someone did a whois on prime357 . org hours earlier and the IP resolved to 67.228.128.242 (which is my host's site). I did the same lookup and the IP resolved to 67.228.230.119 (which seemingly, is correct, is my site).

This problem is an intermittent problem and is happening to other customers of DVH.

I can't physically check or make adjustments (at least I think I can't). What solutions or what process would one go through to track down this type of problem. Is this a common mis-configuration type problem though I haven't come across it before.

Joomla Wrapper And Redirection

Apr 16, 2007

I am using joomla and a script called Olate Download for my site. So I have made olate to display in a joomla wrapper.

what i want to know is how to redirect the olate pages to the joomla wrapper. the pages when indexed in google etc are linked directly to the olate without the wrapper. so what i would like to do is redirect all the incoming olate links to the joomla wrapper ( i understand it will be same page) but also want the search engines to index the olate pages without any problems.

i think this can be done using htaccess. so someone please tell me how to create such a rule. it should redirect all the users which is not reffered from my site to the joomla wrapper except search engine spiders.

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.
