Hi guys. Getting conflicting advice on this one.:nonchalance:

Client has a .ie domain and site for several years on Blacknight.

Recently changed their company name and have a new .com

What's the best way to point the new .com to the existing webspace?

This is what I did it's got problems.

  • I created a domain reference on the BK servers via "add existing domain registered elsewhere" and have the .ie and new .com sharing the same web root.

Works great in that the .com points at the proper webspace but the url in the browser address bar switches back to the .ie domain.

SHould I have just created a CNAME record on the .com ?

Actually, I don't think thats what I need. Just called the BK support guys who took me through it. The Content Management System had a .htaccess file too which needed changing.
