I have a client with a web site (e.g.) www.abcdfg.org
. They had a new web site built and they now want anyone who types in their Internet browser www.abcdfg.org
to be redirected to www.abcjkl.org
. Both domains are registered with Go Daddy, but the two web sites are hosted by Succeed.Net and WP Engine respectively. I was able to go into the DNS A record of www.abcdfg.org
and do a forwarding without masking to www.abcjkl.org
. I also had the web site hosting company, Succeed.Net, do a redirect as well.
Anyone outside the firewall of the client has no problem getting a successful re-direct. If they enter www.abcdfg.org
, they are redirected to www.abcjkl.org
without a hitch.
But if a user inside the client's firewall enters in their browser (on their desktop computer or on their smart phone (with Wi-Fi turned off) www.abcdfg.org
, instead of them being redirected to www.abcjkl.org
, they are directed to a WP Admin page. I have had them clear the cache with still no good results.
On the client's internal DNS server, the www was changed to the IP address of www.abcjkl.org
. However, if one of their users (inside the firewall) types in their Google Chrome or their IE browser www.abcdfg.org
, they do not get a redirect. They get www.abcdfg.org/home/index.htm
Any comments / suggestions on how to get the redirect to work inside the firewall?
