adding another domain that points to my frihost hosting





inphurno
i have signed up for the .co.cc domain but i dont understand what i have to do to get it working with my frihost hosting.

here is what i have done, in theory this should be the right thing:

1) in my .co.cc account under my domains -> edit -> Manage DNS i have put ns1.frih.net and ns2.frih.net

2) i then went to http://cp.frih.net and logged into Direct Admin -> Domain Setup -> Add Another Domain there i entered whatsyourimpact.co.cc

the thing is now via ftp i can access the domain and i see files in the public_html but when i go to http://whatsyourimpact.co.cc/ i get "Welcome to the home of whatsyourimpact.co.cc
To change this page, upload your website into the public_html directory" from Direct Admin

not sure what i'm missing, thanks in advance for your help!

I get a nice little page when going to that domain, if you can't see it try clearing your internet cache.

It always take some time before it work everywhere. Sometimes it can show the right page in another browser. It looks like it works now.

Hmm..I'm also getting "Welcome to the home of whatsyourimpact.co.cc - To change this page, upload your website into the public_html directory" on that URL. But since other people are getting the proper page, it could just be a matter of waiting.

i just cleared my cache again, but its still the same thing. the changes have been made almost a week ago, so i really doubt that it would take that long for it to show up for me. there must be something i missed or have done wrong...

You can try http://www.whatsyourimpact.co.cc/ instead if you have tried without www before.

I think that You have addes new domain, as new domain. This operation will create new folder in Domains folder ... and new public_html etc Smile
This option is ok if You want to create new site.
If You want to make Your new domain to point on Your existing site ... You can do this in your control panel or You can use simple .htaccess rule (mod_rewrite)

Open notepad, paste this code, save it as htaccess , upload to Your domains/whatsyourimpact.co.cc/ folder and change name to .htaccess

Code:
RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymlinks
rewritecond %{http_host} ^whatsyourimpact.co.cc [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://whatsyourimpact.frih.net/$1 [r=301,nc]


Hope this will help You Smile

i put your .htaccess rule (mod_rewrite) file in domains/whatsyourimpact.co.cc and this did not work. i then tried it in /domains/whatsyourimpact.co.cc/public_html/ and then this worked in the sense that i dont have the "Welcome to the home of whatsyourimpact.co.cc
To change this page, upload your website into the public_html directory" from Direct Admin anymore.

but the point of getting this whatsyourimpact.co.cc domain name was because i have another domain whatsyourimpact.co.nr which does URL hiding/cloaking, which might be bad for my search engine placement. so what i was happening with the whatsyourimpact.co.nr was that every page's url was whatsyourimpact.co.nr and not whatsyourimpact.co.nr/test1.htm, whatsyourimpact.co.nr/test2.htm, etc... i'm not sure if i can acheive this with the mod_rewrite but redirecting me to whatsyourimpact.frih.net/ and leaving the whatsyourimpact.frih.net/ there is not what i was hoping to do.

hi everyone, so i think i figured out what the problem was... When i created the domain whatsyourimpact.co.cc in DirectAdmin, i created an addon domain. This was why it had its own folder with sub directories under root/domains. I could have copied everything into this folder but then i would have a problem with the old domain which is the one that is indexed.

I could have also had the same files everywhere 2 times but this would have been a waste of space. So I realized what I needed was a parked domain, which is called a Domain Pointer in DirectAdmin. After i set this up, I was able so get the url I wanted ex: whatsyourimpact.co.cc/test2.htm but now i have to redirect my .co.nr domain to the .co.cc domain with out masking otherwise i think that it looks like i have 2 sotes pointing to the same space and this is a big no no for search engine indexing or something. anyway i have to learn more about this...
