Hi again,

I'm going to have two domain names redirected to the same webspace - they have the same IP adress. For that I've found a php script that allows the redirection of different domain names to folders. It goes like this:

<?php

$main_domain = 'maindomain.com';
$main_redirect = 'index.html';
$mix_up = "http://$main_domain/$main_redirect";
#// --------------------
#// start main script
#// --------------------
global $HTTP_HOST;
if ($HTTP_HOST == "$main_domain")
{
header("Location: ".$mix_up);
}
else {
$site = "$HTTP_HOST";
$site = strtolower($HTTP_HOST);
$site = eregi_replace("^www.", '', $site);
//$site = eregi_replace("^.", '', $site);
$site = eregi_replace("(\.)([a-z]{2,4})$", '', $site);
$redir_url = "http://$HTTP_HOST/$site/";
header("Location: ".$redir_url);
}
?>

First question: will this work? Will the two different domain names appear in the address bar with different names?

Second question: when I pass the mouse in a link, what will appear in the status bar? Adresses connected to the first or second domain name ? (probably the main - that's bad)

Is there another kind of script or configuration (in .htacess or so) that I can do to avoid problems like the above and share the two domain names in the same webspace?

Best regards,

When you visit http://your_ip/, do you get your website? If so that means you have a dedicated IP and these multiple sites per account techniques should work. However it is likely that you have a shared IP (in which case when you visit the address you won't get your website), which means you won't be able to host multiple sites on the same account without redirecting visitors from the second to the first site (or using frames to keep domain2.com in the address bar).
