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

Warning: I have no expertise in these matters, so I'm really sorry if this is a stupid question or I've missed some info you need to be able to diagnose the problem.

I'm trying to make changes to my 1&1 server so the site is hosted at totomerch.net, rather than totomerch.com where it's been until now. The server IP is

Totomerch.net is registered with Godaddy, and has a single @ record pointing at It's been over 72 hours since I made this change.

In my 1&1 control panel, is mapped to totomerch.net, and when I do a reverse lookup (http://remote.12dt.com/lookup.php) it resolves correctly to totomerch.net

Yet when I visit totomerch.net (or any sub-page) in a browser, it immediately redirects to totomerch.com

What am I missing?

Sounds like you created a redirect on Godaddy, or there is no vhost configured on your server for the .net domain.

Edit: Just checked DNS, and your www.totomerch.net is still pointing to your .com

;www.totomerch.net.             IN      A

www.totomerch.net.      3600    IN      CNAME   www.totomerch.com.
www.totomerch.com.      3600    IN      A

Possible that you also have a redirect from just the domain name to www. In this case, all requests will still be served by the .com domain/vhost

In your Apache 2.2.14 webserver you configured a 301 redirect to http://www.totomech.com. So everything works as configured.

For me your .net domain is resolving correctly to the IP address stated however you have a 301 redirect configured

wget -v http://totomerch.net
