Forward only -- Use 301 redirects to redirect from myDomain.com to myApp.appspot.com Forward with Masking -- Use frames to keep the URL as myDomain.com while instructing the browser to fetch the content from myApp.appspot.com. The URL then doesn't change as you navigate the site. Forwarding (of any type) is not what you want. You actually want your content ...

For GoDaddy, forwarding is redirecting every single URL on a domain to another domain using 301 redirects. This is a free service (or at least included at no extra charge with domain registration). With forwarding here are some examples of what happens: http://example.com/ 301 redirects to http://myrealdomain.tld/ http://example.com/page.html 301 ...

I had another domain which only had one subdomain on it, so I used it as a test. Setting up the redirect did not affect my existing subdomains (A records). Update: checking the "Update my nameservers and DNS settings to support this change." box deletes the www CNAME entry which means that only http://olddomain.com will forward/redirect. http://www....

It is not possible to do what you are asking [ for HTTP/HTTPS ] - Unfortunately - and I wish this were not the case, the protocol does not recognize SRV records or any equivalent structure. Possible workaround - Run a reverse proxy on sub.domain.com to pick up data off domain.2.com:1234 (this will push all the traffic through the subdomain proxy though). ...

A forward is performed server side and a redirect is performed client side. When you forward something, the server forwards the request to another server/page and allows them to handle the request. This can be totally transparent as far as the client is concerned and even mask the URL. If you forward example.com to example.net then the end user will still ...

Forwarding and URL is equivalent to Redirecting an URL. Is the same concept. You can use the words interchangeably. However, while redirecting normally refer to the practice of sending an HTTP 30x status code (generally 301 for permanent and 302 for temporary redirects) the word forwarding assumes a broader meaning. In fact, several companies (including ...

This is a limitation in the fundamental design of DNS itself. Adding a CNAME at the apex of a domain is essentially invalid because it leads to an illogical set of consequences. This is why Route 53 created A-Record Aliases -- to work around exactly this issue. Instead of an external referral, like a CNAME does, Alias records are an internal referral -- ...

Updated Answer Redirecting/fowarding a domain can be done within Google Domains at {your domain} > Website > Forward Domain (or Edit Forwarding). For more info, see Google's reference. Old Answer (now irrelevant) This is not possible by design. DNS servers are only meant to resolve hostnames to IP addresses. Once the request reaches your server (i.e. ...

The "masking" capability uses an IFRAME. That's indeed probably not what you want. The easiest is to have your own Apache settings, maybe with a VPS since those are pretty cheap ($20/mo. these days). That way you do not have to bother with such forwarding features. You can do all your setup directly in your Apache, DNS, etc.

You don't want just an A record, you want an SRV record for minecraft. To connect with whatever.domain.tld to your minecraft server add _minecraft._tcp.whatever.domain.tld. IN SRV 0 5 minecrafts_port_number yourminecraftserver.domain.tld. and then yourminecraftserver.domain.tld. IN A servers.ip.address It looks like taking a detour but this ...

Your mistake was attempting to add a port in step 1 and using words like forward. You want to POINT, not foward which I'll explain below. DNS works by translating domain to ip addresses, it has nothing to do with ports. So for example if you have a website running on one ip but then your minecraft server is on another then you need to setup CNAME's which is ...

Google punishments If both sites are the same and both sites are in the index then yes, one will be marked as duplicate. Do a site: www.example.com` as a search on Google. Generally what normally happens is when a site is marked duplicate it will noted by Google and if enough pages and content gets marked as duplicate the site will receive a punishment ...

Using 301 permanent redirects from one domain to the other is your better option. In fact, "domain parking" won't achieve what you want at all. Parking a domain generally means that the registrar will put up its own page there. That page will generally say "coming soon" and have advertisements for the registrar's services.

Turns out that from the DNS settings you need to create a new host record.

The feature that you are looking for is called DNS Failover. No-IP offers it under their $150/year monitoring package. If you are going to lease a server in a data center, I would suggest using it as the primary server. I use a data center to host my websites and use my home computer as a development machine and staging server.

You can use a DNS A record to point the domain to the IP address of your Linux instance. Assuming that the instance is running Apache, you would then create a virtual host that does this redirect: <VirtualHost *:*> ServerName example.com RedirectMatch ".*" "https://www.lokki.newdomain.example/resources/index.html?crsource=google&category=...

I believe as there is no real laws on the books, that, you can redirect any domain to anywhere you choose as long as it follows the law in regards not ie phishing, spoofing or obvious things like wire fraud which comes back to the aforementioned. For some owners who have limited hosting resources it can cause errors or crash server dependent on traffic ...

The way that I do is, add the two domains to cloudflare, redicted it normally to the hosting. On the hosting cpanel, add both domains, and set on cpanel that this site redirect permanent to your main site, so if any day has to change something, is only on the web provider end.

Reference http://lifesforlearning.com/heroku-with-godaddy/ In the FORWARD AND MASKING section (which is under SETTINGS >> Forwarding), I was forward(ing) with masking (as you can see in the screenshot in the question above) to the herokuapp >> http://appsparkler.herokuapp.com. I changed that to forward(without masking) to http://www.appsparkler.com as you ...

You have implemented this redirect with Namecheap. Their help document explains how to set up the redirects either way: www1 http://destination.com Permanent (301) www2 http://destination.com/ Permanent (301) In the above case, www1.yourdomain.com will not pass values to the destination URL so, www1.yourdomain.com/xyz.html will redirect ...

What you could do is make example.com and www.example.com as separate URLs pointing to two different folders on the server, but make www.example.com point to the folder with the website contents. Then these lines can be added to apache's main configuration file (httpd.conf) if you have mod_rewrite installed. RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^...

Instead of selecting forward with mask you need to select forwarding only. Putting it inside a frame is how they mask the domain the site is on.

The best way to go about it is to transfer the files in the group folder at mysite.com to the document root folder at mysitegroup.org and make one of the HTML producing files by the name starting with index so that its executed. For example, make sure one file is index.htm or index.html or if you're using something like wordpress or another content ...

Ok zerohedge it sounds indeed like you're a little confused. To help clarify, what you are trying to do is setup an independently hosted website running Wordpress and to use a subdomain for this. Ideally you would follow these steps: Setup website hosting for myproject.mycorporation.com (avoid using a different domain such as mydomain.io), you will not ...

Your CNAME should be www.bracketfanatic.com pointing to bracketfanatic.com. But that may not be the only thing you need to set. DNS does not normally control redirects, however, there may be something we are not aware of that the host is doing. Make this change and see if that does not solve your problem. If not, then we will have to look further.

If Shopify allows you to change your nameservers then Cloudflare may work. I haven't tried for Shopify but CF has a free SSL as a proxy. It works on "flexible" mode even if the origin is in HTTP mode. Turn on "authenticated origin pulls" to help compensate for this HTTP origin. We do this all the time with sites that shouldn't be allowed to run HTTPS. Now, ...

forward option 301 in GoDaddy I assume this is the Forwarding without masking option as detailed on the GoDaddy support page? In which case, they do state part way down that page: If you want your visitors to be able to go to your domain name with or without the www prefix, you need to forward your domain name to use www.

Did Amazon AWS provide you with the IP address for your server where you have hosted your application? If yes, you can try adding an A record for the sub-domain and point it to that IP address.

Even if it's a bit more work up front, take the time to create that extra cPanel account. You'll be able to have a lot more control over where individual URLs redirect (especially if this domain hosted a website previously) and have better tracking on referrals. If it's causing enough of a skew in your analytics to worry about, then it's likely worth the ...

I've just had a call with the GoDaddy support team and the solution took about 5 minutes. I have a Linux with cPanel, so the process migth vary with yours. You go to "My Account", search for the Domains section and then click on Addon Domains. Here you will fill a three fields form: New Domain Name Subdomain Document Root As long as you fill out the ...
