Masked forwarding uses frames to display the site being redirected to. For dropbox that does not appear to work. You may want to use use a regular redirect instead. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> <html> <head> <title>dropbox.tombrito.com</title> </head> &...

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....

Generally you should do HTTP-level redirects from the alternate host names to the canonical name of your choosing. This makes the entry in the browser location bar switch to the correct name and will act as a cue to search engines to phase out the alternates. The response code should be 301 "Permanent" in this case. Don't forget this is done on a host name ...

After waiting a while, now my gmail accounts for custom domains have received emails. So I guess the answer is NO, it's not broken. Hope it helps someone later

Personally I would have the content hosted on .co.uk and a redirect from .com to the content on .co.uk, that way any links will gain SEO momentum for the .co.uk domain.

If new-domain.com is literally a new domain you have just registered then no type of forwarding/redirection will provide any kind of SEO benefit for old-domain.com. However, if new-domain.com has been hosting an established website for a period of time and has itself been indexed for its own merits and acquired a number of backlinks, then setting up a 301 (...

If you are redirecting, or forwarding, then the chocolate-treat.com won't ever get into Google. You'll only see chocolate-dessert in there. So you can't really accomplish what you're trying to do. The better way is to create new websites on chocolate-treat.com and chocolate-snack.com and produce some great content on those domains. Great content always wins ...

Do you actually have a * wildcard record in your DNS zone file? If yes then all you need to do is add an A record into the zone file and point it to the IP hosting your domain.ca now all connections to that specific sub domain will go to www.domain.com while the other wildcard subdomains will go some place else. Or in cPanel you would simply create your ...

In Chrome's Inspector you get this error Refused to display document because display forbidden by X-Frame-Options. Two ways that should fix it: IFRAMES - Custom Domain Dropbox Add some PHP - Overcoming “Display forbidden by X-Frame-Options” <?php header('X-Frame-Options: GOFORIT'); ?>

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.

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 ...

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.

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 -- ...

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=...

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 ...

Short answer: No, it's not possible to setup wildcard subdomains with .htaccess. To achieve what you want to do, you need to have a wildcard record in your DNS zone file, because your nameserver is where the subdomains are looked up. Also, many hosting companies will not allow you to add a wildcard record, so you'll have to check with them.

Domain name forwarding is subject to outages just like any other hosting. Here is a list of steps that happen when somebody types in a domain name (forward.exmample.com) that gets forwarded (to www.example.com): A DNS lookup for forward.example.com is performed and an IP address is obtained The browser connects to that IP address on port 80 The browser ...

Domain forwarding is accomplished by pointing the hostname you want to forward to a server, then configuring the server to accept HTTP requests and forward any request to another URI. This means that, in order for it to work, the DNS record for the hostname must actually point to an IP address, the address of the server that is handling the forwarding. In ...

It sounds like what you want to do is domain mirroring, or do you just want to forward from one URL to another? If you're looking to forward domains, you would want to look at the DNS settings where you registered your domain, or look to see if you have a control panel where you can manage domains and redirections. If you just want to forward to an ...

There may be a way to accomplish what you are looking for using domain masking, but I would strongly recommend against it. Domain masking does not mix with SEO. Domain masking itself is an ugly hack that hosting companies at some point started calling a feature, and it prevents search engines from properly reasoning about a page. I would direct all your ...

If I understand it correctly, you want all the traffic from both domains being showed in Analytics only by www.newdomain.com right? Never did before but, I think you can try something like this: Apply an Advanced filter to add the hostname to Google Analytics. Apply a Search and Replace filter to change olddomain.com to newdomain.com There are other ...

It's not difficult really. When they hit your domain do whatever tracking you want (i.e. logging to a database) then forward them with a 303 redirect to the landing page. Another option (don't know if this is actually possible), forward the domain to a URL shortener which offers tracking.

It depends if Bluehost allows port redirection using an .htaccess file, try this: RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^subdomain.old-domain.com$ [NC] RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^8014$ RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://subdomain.new-domain.com:8000/subdirectory/$1 [R=301,L]

Consider... bar.example.com. CNAME foo.example.com. foo.example.com. A 192.0.2.23 Here, when a DNS resolver encounters a CNAME record while looking for a regular resource record, it will restart the query using the canonical name instead of the original name. That is when an A record lookup for bar.example.com is done, the resolver ...

I wouldn't class a iframe solution the best solution, while this doesn't answer your question directly it does give you an additional and more robust never-mind a more browser friendly site. The method that I believe is best suited for you is to use rel="canonical" on the .gr domain referring to .org as the master (no redirects). If they visit .gr they ...
