It could be your  page that performs redirect:


if (strstr($HTTP_REFERER, $one_url) != false )
    Header("Location: $first_redirect_url");
   // No referer or referer is not $one_url
    Header("Location: $another_redirect_url");

Thats exactly what I was looking for, but now I realize I was looking for the wrong thing..

Here's the problem...I have 2 domains pointing to the same website, can I make each go to a different website using PHP?
