Ability to redirect www.theirdomain.com to www.ourdomain.com/theirdomain/


As part of a merger, we have a need to redirect a website URL to a sub directory of our main website.
we want the ability to redirect  www.theirdomain.com and theirdomain.com to www.ourdomain.com/theirdomain/

I understand that using a CNAME is not really the best option.
Open to all ideas.

Thanks in advance.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You will need a redirect on www.theirdomain.com & theirdomain.com to the other domain.
If needed you can run this on ONE server where CNAME points to that server's name.
(That server should just serve out the redirects to the www.ourdomain.com/theirdomain.

A 301 redirect? Using .htaccess or similar?
nociSoftware EngineerCommented:
302 (permanent might be better)
Either .htaccess (if apache is used)  for nginx or lighttpd conditional redirects can be done.
but if the application is in PHP already, maybe a PHP solution is closer to home.
