How can I get my site to redirect to a different site not with Dreamhost?
I’d like for a visitor to be redirected to my other site once they visit my dreamhost site.

set up the domain as mirrored. Panel > domains > Manage >add new mimrroed domain.


Thanks Mattail.

It won’t let me do it. It says, “Invalid domain: domain name must contain only letters, numbers, “-”, and “.”.”

My dreamhost site is
When someone goes there, I would like for them to be sent to

Is it b/c of the “/”?

sorry, my fault. I think a redirected domain or cloaked one will work for you.


I got the same message as before.

Thanks again.

Ok, I just tested, and I set up a redirect thrugh the Panel. Add a new domain, and just fill in the box for the redirect. Place the name of a domain or sub-domain that has not allready been used elsewhere. In the next box, put in the url of the domain you want to forward to.

For instance I set up my test this way:
Domain to redirect:
Redirect to URL:

Try it like that, and see if it works.


Same thing happened.
I think it won’t let me because I didn’t do it at the beginning when I first registered the domain and got a dreamhost account.
That domain is
I tried just typing in the domain section “” and it said "Can’t add domain: already in our system."
It seems like I would not need to “add” domain but change the settings for one that already exists. Am I trying it in the wrong place?

Thanks again for helping,


If the domain already exists on the Dreamhost system, go to Domains -> Manage, select ‘Edit’ next to the domain you want to redirect, and fill in the target redirect URL in the appropriate place.

If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.


That worked.
Thanks for your help.
