Getting a domain to reroute to a frihost subdomain





bogger
My site:
http://gods.frihost.net/Kenilworth/

My registered domain:
www.kenilworthandcollins.com

I've gone onto the site I registered the domain with, and added the primary and secondary nameservers you gave in the FAQ

I've also gone into my "parked domain" thing in cpanel and added:

Domain kenilworthandcollins.com
Domain Root Home/public_html
Redirects to http://gods.frihost.net/Kenilworth/

But it's not working. I'm quite new to this aspect, the domain thing.

I can't see what else I'm meant to do

It works perfectly fine for me. Although it just redirects the domain, so it's not truly parked. Or something like that. But it works perfectly fine.

I entered the address in the address bar as www.kenilworthandcollins.com ..Then the site opened and the address in the address bar changed to http://gods.frihost.net/Kenilworth/ ...!!!

And the site worked for me too...!! But what i wanted to ask you is that..You could have done that without the address change in the address bar...!! and the address remains to be www.kenilworthandcollins.com ...!!!

Yes that's possible, but it depends on the type of domain. It could be a parked domain or a redirect domain. Also, it takes at least 24 hours for the name servers to become active on the domain.

it doesn't work for me >.< but ok, seems to work for others

how can I get it to stay as kenilworth... .com? if I did do that, would it show the differing pages?

i.e. .com/index.php and .com/submit.php or would it just show kenilworth.... .com for every page?
