To make things easier, I’m hosting multiple websites on subdomains of my main website.
However, I do not want my customers to know that they are on a subdomain, I want the feel of a main domain.
For example, I’ve a website on “lamarsoutternewsletter.nicholaslamarsoutter.com”, which is a WordPress page. I own the domain name “lamarsouternews.com”. I’ve cloaked “lamarsoutter.com” to the subdomain, which at first appears to achieve the desired result – people go to “lamarsoutternews.com” and view the website as its own domain though it’s actually a subdomain.
However, none of the links work on WordPress – they all say file not found. This included the admin folder, which could not be found except by acing it through the full subdomain name. WordPress allows you to change internal settings, allowing you to set the install location. I set it to “lamarsoutternews.com” to attempt to fix the problem, and that worked for a few hours before losing access to the admin pages even from the subdomain.
I am wondering if this is something that can be done with .htaccess, whereby using the RewriteEngine and RewriteCond, (along with either mirroring, cloaking, or redirect) can get the same effect – to allow access to the subdomain (and all the features of the WordPress site) through a cloaked domain.
Cloaking has worked on another website, but that site is a standard website. With Wordpress the main page loads, but you can’t click on ANYTHING.
Any thoughts? Is there a better way (like through .htaccess) to do this?
