Domain name forwarding problem
I have 2 domain names.
domain1.com is web hosted on dreamhost
domain2.com is web hosted on godaddy.
I set up a sub-domain in domain1:
I want to forward all page requests to domain2.com to the corresponding page on domain2.domain1.com.
I forwarded domain2.com on godaddy (using the domain forwarding option) to domain2.domain1.com. So now, when I enter domain2.com, I see the page I set up on domain2.domain1.com. So far so good.
However, when I try to access domain2.domain1.com/page2.html by using domain2.com/page2.html. All I see is the welcome page for domain2.domain1.com (domain2.domain1.com/index.php). However, when I access domain2.domain1.com/page2.html, it works fine ...
Is there something I'm missing?
use "Pass Subdirectories" option . See
Domain URL Fowarding FAQ
Pass Subdirectories sounds like what I'm looking for. However Godaddy doesn't seem to have a setting to enable or disable it. Unless, I'm totally missing it?
From browsing this forum, seems that a lot of people use godaddy. I'm surprised that I'm the first (?) to ask this question and nobody seems to have a usable suggestion.
Any way, putting godaddy and pass subdirectory into google and got the following:
So, I tried out his suggestion. But of course, gotta wait 2/3 days.
So keeping my fingers crossed that I didn't set anything wrong :roll:
This suggestion required going thru a 3rd party dns server. Which is like, wtf, why doesn't godaddy provide the pass-subdirectory feature.
10-points off for godaddy
If anyone has better, less confusing, more reliable options, pls let me know. I just think that have to go thru a 3rd party just adds more point of failures
Especially when you don't know if the third party will start charging for it
