  • Multiple domain names.

    Hello everyone,

    I registered one domain name with my Windows hosting and let's call it domainA.com. Yesterday, I purchased two more domain names. domainB.com and domainC.net. How can I point them to my current site and plus do you know I will be charged extra for this service?

    Thanks,
    PEACE

    Do you plan on having the other domains just point to the main domain? If so I'd say go with their Domain Forwarding option. Its pretty cheap. $15 a year or $1.25 a month each.

      I am in a similar situation. If I get domain/email forwarding what will be in the address bar, the forwarding domain or my actual hosting account domain?

        Re: Multiple domain names.

        You can have it set up either way. When you sign up for domain forwarding you can choose to forward with or without framing.

        Lets say you have set up domainA.com to forward to domainB.com. If you redirect with framing, anyone who types in "domainA.com" into their address bar, will continue to see "domainA.com" in their address bar when they get redirected. This is because the target site, "domainB.com" is being opened in a frame within the browser window. A side effect of using this method is that any pages visited on the target site are also hidden. For example, if someone clicked a link to "contacts.html" on the site, they would still see "domainA.com" in the address bar instead of "domainA.com/contacts.html".

        The other option is Redirect without framing. This is a simple 302 redirect. When someone types in "domainA.com", they'll see "domainB.com" in the address bar.

        If neither of these options are what you are looking for, for example you would prefer visitors see "domainA.com/contacts.html" then there is a 3rd option. Instead of signing up for domain forwarding you can sign up for a domain alias. An alias is a little more expensive but it does have another bonus. On a domain forwarding plan, all email sent to domainA.com gets forwarded to a single email address. With a domain alias, each email address on the target domain is also aliased. This means email sent to user1@domainA.com goes to user1@domainB.com, user2@domainA.com goes to user2@domainB.com, etc.
