I redirected my subdomain blog.qmery.com to blog.borhancid.com. When I dig it, it's showing the right DNS (shows DNS server of borhancid). When I want to access it by browser it's showing the default HTTP page of my host.

Does the problem arise from qmery.com or borhancid.com?

  • the question here is how have you done the redirect? I would recommend you to do it with the .htaccess – nunorbatista Nov 24 '14 at 14:22

You also need to configure your web server to (return a 301) redirect from blog.qmery.com to blog.borhancid.com. Simply pointing DNS correctly is not enough.

  • Can you improve this answer with some explanation about how to set up redirects? Some links to references or documentation would also be helpful. – Stephen Ostermiller Nov 24 '14 at 14:53
  • As well, it sounds like there was probably a mistake made in the DNS specification. It might be helpful to get into the DNS side of this especially in light of the recent rise in OPs that think DNS does redirection. – closetnoc Nov 24 '14 at 17:06
