Just wondering if anyone can assist me with the following query.

I want to allow a customer to utilise our web application for their clients and they have a spare domain.

How do we go about mapping their domain to point to our application and then their clients will think the application is theirs and not us as it sits on our domain?

Hey Bill - you really should go back and mark answers to your previous questions as "accepted". – EEAA Feb 24 '11 at 22:49
People are going to be wary of offering you answers as long as you have a low accept rate. That's because this community thrives on having good answers to good questions. If someone has given you a good answer in the past, but you did not mark it as such, the community is weakened. Now, if you truly did not get good answers to your previous questions, then edit your previous questions and say that you're still looking for a satisfactory answer. – Wesley Feb 24 '11 at 23:57

Have there domain DNS A record point to your web application IP. If you use Virtual Hosts, make sure you add a record for that domain. Also depending on your application it may need modification to "think" its your customers application.

Hi, I have a hosted web server for which the application sits on. What record would I need to add? thanks – Bill Johnson Feb 24 '11 at 23:40
Who ever owns the domain needs to make DNS changes on the listed name servers for the said domain. – xeon Feb 24 '11 at 23:49
