Ok i have a

domain.com and domain.co.uk. Domain.com is my real domain with physical content.

I made a cname so domain.co.uk visitors see all data from domain.com

Now i am doing some redirects in my search in global.asax and seems everything is working on my co.uk domain except for the search.

here is the relative code from the global.asax file

// If the dummy page is hit, then it means we want to add another item
    // in cache
    string url = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.ToString().ToLower();
    if (url.Contains("/property/s/") && url.Contains("localhost"))
    {
       FakeUrlCheck(4);
    }
    else (url.Contains("domain.com/property/s/") && url.Contains("domain.com/property/s/"))
    {
        FakeUrlCheck(4);        
    }
  else if (url.Contains("www.domain.co.uk/property/s/"))
    {
        FakeUrlCheck(4);        
    }


}
void FakeUrlCheck(int length)
{

    string AbsUrl = HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.AbsolutePath;
    string[] urlInfo404 = AbsUrl.Split('/');
    if (AbsUrl.ToLower().Contains("/property/s/") && !File.Exists(Request.PhysicalPath) && !AbsUrl.ToLower().Contains("property/default.aspx") && urlInfo404.Length == length)
    {
        string location = urlInfo404[length -1];
        StringBuilder sbParams = new StringBuilder();
        sbParams.Append("?AL=");
        //if (location.Contains(", "))
        //    location = location.Replace(", ", "--");
        //if (location.Contains(" - "))
        //    location = location.Replace(" - ", "--");
        //if (location.Contains(" "))
        //    location = location.Replace(" ", "--");

        if (location.Contains("--"))
            location = location.Replace("--", ", ");
        if (location.Contains("-"))
            location = location.Replace("-", " ");
        //if (location.Contains(" - "))
        //    location = location.Replace("~", "-");

CNames are designed to give an alias to a domain name.

for example you could setup a domain name

mail.domain.com ---> IP address of 10.20.30.40

then you could setup a cname like this :
webmail.domain.com ---> mail.domain.com

The rules do not state that you cannot cross from one domain to another but it would be seen as bad practice.
- It looks ugly
- It will end up eating PR ranking in search engines and put you down the page
- It is harder to troubleshoot if there are issues later in life.

A far better way of doing this is to setup a empty web site.  A single page will be served to any page request. It will give a http 301 error and redirect to the main page.

If you do this it will fix all of the things listed (by me) above and you can also get rd of most of the domain url checking code :)

They may well be - but that doesn't make it right :)

Both of their CNAMES go to cloud services.  Not between domains.

well I'm not sure it is what you want at all.

In my one - when you go to - www.domain.co.uk
the screen flashes and you get forwarded onto www.domain.com

I'm guessing you want both to run separately - just having the same content ?
