I have a web site for a movie I'm producing, and the title changed recently. The film's web site used to be http://www.TheFutureOfPinball.com, and now it's http://www.Tilt-Movie.com.
I set up the appropriate forwarding on the "Manage Domains" screen on dreamhost, and it works fine: if you type "http://www.TheFutureOfPinball.com", it changes to "http://www.Tilt-Movie.com" and goes to the correct (new) website. But if I put anything after the domain URL--for instance, http://www.TheFutureOfPinball.com/dvd.html--it doesn't work.
Any idea how I could fix this problem?
http://www.TheFutureOfPinball.com/dvd.html will first look for TheFutureOfPinball.com folder.
What is the name of Web Directory for the domain? It is listed in DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains
Save [color=#CC0000]$97[/color] (max discount) on dreamhost plans by using promo code: [color=#CC0000]97CRAZY[/color].
It's 'tilt-movie.com'. (That's the actual directory name.)
I guess you are redirecting a domain. It should be quite straight forward to redirect domain. You may want to refer wiki http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Redirect_Domain
I'm not sure how long it takes to propagate the change in the server. Shall we wait for some time if you just set up the redirect.
I'm confused by your comment...yes, I'm redirecting the domain. That's how it's set up now. But it doesn't work when anything comes after the domain name (say, http://www.TheFutureOfPinball.com/buy.html). I'm trying to fix that one situation...any ideas?
sorry to confuse you i'm also trying to figure it out.
Is buy.html file in TheFutureOfPinball.com folder or tilt-movie.com folder?
Works just fine.

Yes...I hadn't had a chance to re-post here, but I fixed it. The problem was that in the redirect domain field on the "Manage Domains" page, I didn't put a "/" at the end of the URL. (It was "http://www.Tilt-Movie.com". When I changed it to "http://www.Tilt-Movie.com/", it worked.)
there it plays the trick. thanks for sharing your solution
