Making two domain names one

Postby Nervosa » Fri Nov 07, 2008 10:38 am

I currently have a set up so a URL and a sub domain of another url link to the same content.

example:
domainA.com and sub1.domainB.com link to the same content.
I had my host set this up not sure what was done.

What I would like to do is rewrite sub1.domainB.com to domainA.com, is this possable?

I don't understand what you want.

When you go to sub1.domainB.com what should happen? What site/files should you see?
When you go to domainA.com what should happen? What site/files should you see?

If you go to either domainA.com or sub1.domainB.com, you will see the same content.
So domainA.com/file.php and sub1.domainB.com/file.php is the same thing.

I no longer want to use to different urls for the same thing.
I would like it so when someone clicks a link or types in sub1.domainB.com, it turns into domainA.com.

Right, try
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

So it I want to make 123.exampleB.com into exampleA.com, is this how it should look?

Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^123\.exampleB\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.exampleA.com/$1 [R=301,L]

No, you want
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.exampleA\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.exampleA.com/$1 [R=301,L]

It means, if it's not www.exampleA.com, redirect to www.exampleA.com.
