I have two domains bought at different providers and I would like http://aaaaa.com to show http://bbbbb.com/aaaaa.

Is this possible using only DNS? Must I transfer the domain to my hosting provider? I really don't want to use a redirection or iframe.

i think this could be done using some rewrite-rules.


you could set the A records for the domains to the same server, then check what is coming in and rewite it...

see for apache: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html there is also one for IIS http://www.micronovae.com/ModRewrite/

update: on shared-hosting environments .htaccess is more likely the place where this could be set.



I think people typically use Reverse Proxies in this case. For example you can set up any request for:

http://a.com to serve the content from http://b.com/a.  

You can read more about this on Apachetutor Reverse Proxies
