Pointer Domains


Sorry to be so dumb, but I need to get some stuff done, and since Interworx cant do it I need your help since the staff can’t.

I have a client thats want’s to set up several pointer/add on domains, he wants them to point to differnt pages. Normal stuff, but Interworx can not do it.

Before I get into detail, does pointer domains in any sort support subdomains?

What I mean is, can pointer domain sub.domain.com point to what ever the main site is?

So I gave them this code… (from post http://www.interworx.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4107&postcount=6 )

[LEFT]RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^.domain.tld$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.
?)/?(.*)$ %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/$1/$2 [L]

But that does not seem to be working, I dont know why, so is there some other way to go about the pointer domains?

“You could easily set up some apache Rewrite rules to accomplish this, but that’s outside the realm of our support”

How would I go about doing what ever that is?[/LEFT]

If you edit the main apache conf file for your domain and remove the large rewrite block in there it will in essence do what you want but at the same time “turn off” all subdomains for the given account and point them at the main site.


Hmmm ok, well they do have sub domains that need to work, sigh Well I am sure someone will have an idea :slight_smile: thanks for your time cris, and I do compleatly understand why you can support this type of thing :slight_smile:

[SIZE=2]Ok more details might help, I have a client, his main domain is [/SIZE][SIZE=2]http://www.ncastercms.com/[/SIZE][SIZE=2], he has a pointer [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]cmsworkshop.com that he wants to point to the main site, that works, he also wants a pointer boards.cmsworkshop.com that he wants to point to http://ncastercms.com/boards/[/SIZE]
