Domain Change When Page Loads
Posted 09 August 2004 - 07:35 AM
I am visiting a site by typing in the domain in the address bar. As soon as the page loads, a different domain name is displayed in the address bar. The changing of the domain is instant.

I've used it for clients who are running various marketing campaigns (in different magazines, radio etc.). It's a great way to tell how people heard of your site.
This can be accomplished with a mod rewrite rule on Apache as well.
The down side to this (before someone else comments) is that if a user puts a link up on their site to your site and hasn't noticed the rewrite, you lose PR.
One way to use this very effectively in marketing campaigns is to run an with a link www.widget.com when the users enters this in their browser, they are redirected to www.company.com/widgets

Can you tell me how that works please, or where I can learn 'how to', because this is exactly what I need!

Beyond following the excellent link provided by chrishirst if you're running a Apache server be sure to visit apache.org for all the details.
Of course, if you don't manage the server, all the knowledge won't help you if the server administrator won't configure it for you. That's why I like to know how things work, so I can tell them "looks it's not that big a deal, you just need to add a few lines to the Apache config file. If you're too busy to look-up how to do it, I'll gladly send you the code"

Must've had my wires crossed... what I need/would like to do, I guess can't be done via 301s
And so the search goes on.... :tooth:

What is it you need to do?

Someone types in www.123.com.
www.123.com is actually www.abc.com/123
How do I get the someone to land on www.abc.com/123, instead of www.abc.com?
Multiply by x times... there's also www.456.com, www.789.com (www.abc.com/456, abc.com/789) and so on.
Someone here suggested virtual servers, which sounds great - but I've yet to find the time to research, set up etc - I'm in the middle of moving house
The current domain hosts won't allow me to redirect to directories. Not unless I pay a lot of money for each redirect, which I refuse to do (it actually works out the same amount, as buying the web space for each name)
Guess I was just dreaming of a temporary quick fix via an htaccess script or similar. :halo:

redirect 301 www.123.com http://www.abc.com/123
I think... try it and see. I use that method if someone types in an old page to redirect them to the new page, or point a domain to another domain etc.
Same thing... just add a 301 in the domain you want to redirect from.
I know its also doable with apache mod_rewrite but I am not an expert on that its on my list of things to read up on (a long list lol). Mod_rewrite is a lot cleverer than 301's but also a lot more complicated

Have I got this right? is that what you want to do?
A reseller package can be a few $$ a month, plus you then get the added benefits that go with it.

thanks for adding to my list of things to do! LOL
I'll have to research the reseller hosting thing....
Alas, I'm at a dead end. Feel free to put me out of my misery! (I hear a gun might be the fastest way... :tooth: )
There are generators at HTML Basix
I'm just too thick to make use of it for this particular issue

Many hosts have redirect tools built into the Control Panel that they offer. I have attached a screen shot of the redirect tool we use which is built directly into Hsphere. There are many Hsphere hosts out there who offer great tools. I would recommend searching your preferred SE for "hsphere host" to find some.
