Website links for new domain

Hello,

 

I'm trying my best here, but I'm new to all this!

 

So.  I have my website and a GoDaddy domain.  I have forwarding setup.  So:

 

http://www.myGoDaddyDomain.com redirects to http://www.mywebsite.com

 

That's fine.  That part works.

 

Now what I want to do is have links from my new domain forward/redirect to my website.

So:

 

http://www.myGoDaddyDomain.com/myLink

redirect/forward to

http://www.mywebsite.com/somelink

 

I can't work out how to do this.  It seems to me I need to have a domain for every possible link.  Surely that's not the case!?!?!?

 

Appreciate your help in advance.

Re: Website links for new domain

Hi Yabbie,

 

So on the index page you have for http://www.myGoDaddyDomain.com/myLink

 

Depending on what your site is coded in you need to add in code that will automatically redirect the visitor to:

http://www.mywebsite.com/somelink

 

You could create an index.html file in the folder directory for 'myLink' like this:

 

<html>
<head>
<title>Redirect</title>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; URL=http://www.mywebsite.com/somelink/">
<meta name="keywords" content="automatic redirection">
</head>
</html>

 

Hope this helps.

Re: Website links for new domain

Hi BrookDawg,

 

Thank you for your reply.  Perhaps I can give you more information.

 

We are a sporting club that has a website hosted for us by our governing organisation.  We can't modify this site.  The site is:  http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au

 

We have a GoDaddy domain we purchased:  http://www.tyabbcc.com

 

Through the GoDaddy management portal, we can forward www.tyabbcc.com to http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au

That part works fine.

 

Where the problem is, is we have a sponsors page (for example) with a big ugly link:

http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au/content.aspx?file=850|46245w

 

I want to be able to have www.tyabbcc.com/sponsorship forward to the above link (and so on).

 

Is this possible to achieve?

 

Thank you again for your help!

Re: Website links for new domain

Hey again Yabbie,

 

No worries.

 

Only way I see around this at the minute is setting up a 301 redirect.

 

To do go to your hosting account you have for tyabbcc.com and add a 301 redirect to the .htaccess file.

 

Like so:

 

Redirect 301 /sponsorship http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au/content.aspx?file=850|46245w

 

The above means if anyone goes to www.tyabbcc.com/sponsorship they'll get redirected to that big ugly url.

 

Hope this helps

Re: Website links for new domain

Hi BrookDawg,

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

I have a 301 redirect now, for my GoDaddy domain (www.tyabbcc.com) to redirect to http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au

 

I can only have one 301 for my domain.  I can't work out how to edit my .htaccess file - we don't host tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au, we only 'use' the website and there is no way to edit any .htaccess file on the GoDaddy portal (that I can see).

 

I don't know how to do the solution you offered, but your solution is exactly what I want!

 

Appreciate your continued help!

Re: Website links for new domain

Hey again,

 

No problem at all.

 

I understand you don't have access to tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au, how ever just purchase a shared linux hosting plan, for example.. the starter or economy linux hosting with GoDaddy, as once you do this and attach your domain tyabbcc.com, you'll be able to create a .htaccess file and add your re-directs.

 

Hope this helps
