I am trying to set up my DH site (xxx.dreamhosters.com) to answer directly at a non-dreamhoster domain (xxx.emory.edu) WITHOUT frames. I’ve asked DH support how to do this several times and keep getting different answers. The non-dreamhost domain (emory.edu) has its own DNS servers and they can create a CNAME for the subdomain to point to Dreamhost’s hosting servers. Redirecting and cloaking are not the right solutions. How do I set things up on the dreamhost side.
If mirroring is the correct answer, what kind of entry (“A” record or “CNAME”) does Emory put into its DNS system to point “xxx.EMORY.EDU” to the hosted site on Dreamhosters.com? Emory cannot change the name server entries for emory.edu itself, as your instructions seem to suggest, but it can do “A” records and “CNAME” entries ad nauseum.
Thanks in advance.
