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?

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?

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 ).

Environmentally Friendly Hosting

May 2, 2008

I've been starting to see a little more emphasis on "green" hosting. I'm curious what exactly this would entail. Are there hosts that are using renewable energy sources such as solar and wind? Are some hosts more responsible about the way they dispose of old hardware? Which companies are leading the way?

DMCA Friendly Streaming Server

Mar 23, 2009

We run into DMCA problems (Windows Media Streaming) 3-4 times a year and most of these requests come for content that are not even governed by US laws.We currently have Ecatel and they have been good with DMCA but their quality has been a major drawback (Stream buffering big time, even for a dedicated server)

We are looking for a Windows server 2003 streaming server with at least 100Mbps dedicated unmetered connection (will upgrade to 500 or even 1Gbps dedicated if the quality is reasonable).

How To Disable Friendly Error Message

Feb 27, 2008

I kept getting the "friendly error" below even though i'd disabled it on the client browser (this prove that my client browser is not the problem). i purposely coded a simple script wrongly to get the detail error, but to no avail. I believe it has to do with the server setting.

Can you advise if there's any setting/configuration in the server that might cause this? Without the detail error, it will be impossible for me to debug what is wrong with my asp script.

Some of the stuffs that i'd checked on server.
1) The ISS has been set to send detail errors.

2) It is recognizing the .asp extension (approve) - else, the asp page wouldnt even work.

Been debugging this for few nights already, any help are very much appreciated.

The error example:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator to inform of the time the error occurred and of anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Mailing List Friendly Hosts

Aug 27, 2008

I'm downsizing my hosting business and I need to find a new host for a good client of mine. They are a small independent record label and use around 2gb of storage and 100gb of transfer. More importantly, though, they make heavy use of their mailman mailing lists.

Can anyone recommend a host who doesn't limit outbound emails per hour or who has another solution for large mailing lists?

Script (php / MySQL) Friendly Hoster That Uses Cpanel

Jun 6, 2008

I suspect people asking about tips on good hosters all the time here, and I'm no different.

But I can start off with the basic req. that might narrow it a tad atleast.

- - - - - - -
1 : Cpanel;

This is the first basic req. I have.
I myself are not the most skilled coder in the world, nor is the others around me and we like Cpanel since it "saves" us from confusion very often.
- - - - - - -

2 : Script php / mySQL friendly;
We use CMS scripts (MXP, Joomla, e107, etc) for our communities and forum scripts (phpbb, vBulletin, etc) at all times. So a good loading time is a must, nothing is as devestating for a communitie than a slooow forum.
- - - - - - -

3 : And the regular ;
BIG and cheap. We just doing noncommercial / fun / silly projects / communities so it needs to be cheap and with a good size. Have some photographers + communities with albums and that eats up a good chunk of webspace after awhile.
- - - - - - - -

We greatly appriciate any tips on hosters that covers this. Support don't have to superfast, we pretty relaxed when it comes to that, but the other reqs. is needed.

If you know or even better USE a hoster like this please let us know. We badly need one at the moment. We would be very happy if you could post or PM us a link/s to your or other sites you know of that is active and uses scripts like;

CMS systems

So we can check the loadingtime over here in Sweden.

Search Engine-friendly URLs On Server API: CGI

One of the sites I have, is placed on a non-Apache server (the others are). Phpinfo() gives this:
Server API CGI

I'd like to make search engine-friendly URLs for all my sites. All of them will do fine with mod_rewrite, but that's not possible on this server, it seems. Anybody here knows how I can do this for this particular server?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: XenForo Nginx Friendly URLs

Jan 28, 2015

I'm trying to use nginx php-fpm on my forum, and to set friendly url's, I am told to add this to nginx config:

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$uri&$args;
index index.php index.html;

[Code] ....

I try adding this using the Additional Nginx Directives, and get this error:

Invalid nginx configuration: nginx: [emerg] duplicate location "/" in /var/www/vhosts/system/ nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

I think if my domain was in a folder, this wouldn't be a problem. I really don't want to change that, though.

Subdomain Redirection

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?

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 with Networksolutions

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

In our router configuration we have 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 We basically want it to redirect them to

Preferably masked so that all someone would see is but they're actually at

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

it redirects to

ok no problem there. but when you type

it redirects to the hostname

where you promptly receive a 404 error.

BUT, if you type

(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

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, whilst he (the host) works on the problem as to why 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 (which is my host's site). I did the same lookup and the IP resolved to (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.
