Pointing one domain to another?


#1

Hi,

Just registered and beginning to move my stuff over from another host.

I have my primary domain set up, sample.com.

I have an alternate domain that needs to be pointed to sample.com – lets call it mysample.com.

How do I do this with dreamhost?

Hi form3hide!

If ‘MySample.com’ is hosted with Dreamhost, you can easily create a Redirect in the DreamHost CPanel.
Under domains click Manage Domains
Click Edit to edit MySample.com
you will find a ‘Redirect’ field here, simply redirect MySample.com to Sample.com

If ‘MySample.com’ is not hosted with DreamHost - you will need to create a redirect page yourself, and upload it to your host via FTP. Or perhaps your host for MySample.com has similar functionality to DH? If not, consider moving it;)

I hope this helps:)

Hmm, my previous host allowed me to “park” the mysample.com domain on the sample.com domain. Is this not possible with DH?
