View Full Version : Redirecting a parked domain to a website in a different directory

22 Dec 2012, 02:49 PM
As the title suggests i would like to learn how to point a parked domain to another website hosted in a different directory on my paid hosting server.

Here are the circumstances, i have a paid hosting and a domain, i also got a second free domain and a second website. I would like to host the second website files in a different directory then the one in which i host my main website. Than i want to park that second free domain in this server, and make a sort of redirect to point it to that second folder. How do i do that? How do i tell that second parked domain to display files from that second directory?

Thank you a lot.

Firstly I don't think you're looking to park the domain I think you're more looking to ad an "addon domain".

Do you have a control panel for your hosting and if so what control panel is it? ie: cPanel, eXtend (heart internet)

If both domains are registered with the same host, you can normally do this via your host's control panel.
When you log in, do you see a menu point "Domains" or similar?

If so, chances are that you can just point the domain at whatever directory you please. Simple as that.
