I have two domains hosted in one hosting account.
domA.com is the primary domain and Domb.com is parked in that hosting account.
I run email from domB.com and that it.

At the moment I have domB configured so that when www.domB.com is typed into an address bar the website from www.domA.com shows up, but with www.domB as its URL.
What I need to do is reconfigure domB so that not only does the website of domA.com show up but domA is displayed in the URL.

I spoke with the hosts and they were not that much help and gave me some very basic info in dropping in a HTACCESS file however I am a little lost. Can anyone assist?

Hi,

If I understand you correctly you are therefore wanting to re-direct domB to domA

This is a 301 redirect.

your .htaccess file needs to read:

(index.php is replaced with the index page ref)


RewriteEngine On
Redirect 301 /index.php http://www.domA.com

Open in new window

You need to use a 301, but the above rule will not forward everything. Cut and paste the following code into a file, rename it .htaccess remember to put the . in front of it. Change newdomain.com to the domain you want the site to point TO and then upload the .htaccess file to the site that will forward.

Thats it  :)   Then anything that goes to domB.com will forward over not just index.php.

Com-
Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Open in new window

Although, does that not cause a loop?

No, it just forwards every page to the new domain:

domB.com/whatever.html will forward to domA.com/whatever.html
