Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have bought a domain on 101 domains. However, I have the site hosted elsewhere. The domain is called www.test.com (for example). Using cloaking Forwarding will keep the name (www.test.com) in the browser and forward it to my server. However, if the user clicks any of the links (www.test.com/help) they will get an error page. I have access to Apace on the server and imagine that I can fix this with a mod re-write. The majority of tutorials recommend using frames -- which I ain't willing to do -- or javascript. But surly this is possibly with Apache?


It is url masking and I think I can take care of it with a reverse proxy alright. Just have to figure it out.

What do you mean by 'cloaking forwarding'? –  Steve Mayne Mar 23 '11 at 13:49
As far as I'm aware, this term is usually used by web hosts to mean framed forwarding. –  Steve Mayne Mar 23 '11 at 13:56
What you want is a reverse proxy. –  Mark Wagner Mar 23 '11 at 21:10
Also, you could simply use a DNS CNAME. –  Mark Wagner Mar 23 '11 at 21:24
As embobo said why not just set the DNS of the domain to the correct server? That would be much better. It's more efficient and less complex. –  matthew Mar 24 '11 at 14:37
