redirecting Web site

By Meg Hatrick ·
Our company has a Web site, www.companyA.com, being hosted by ProviderA. Our sister company has a Web site, www.companyB.com, being hosted else where by ProviderB. Due to a merger, we would like to redirect the sister company's Web site so when people type companyB.com, they actually get companyA.com.

We had ProviderB change the MX record so our Exchange server is receiving their e-mail now. But they tell me that the only way to redirect the Web site is for us to do html coding. Is this true? They terminated the IS person doing their Web and network stuff at CompanyB, and I'm located elsewhere in the country, with no records that we've found so far ...

Thanks in advance for your help.

redirecting Web site

The easiest and only thing to do is contact your Host and have them add the new domain name - of companyb.com - and have it redirect to your company. You don't need to do anything else, they will take it from there.

Thanks. I just got the answer from ProviderA stating what change they'll make as compared to what DNS change (CNAME) needs to be made by ProviderB.

You can create as much as you want pointers to your web site (you can point both websites to IP address of your web site). If you will want to have two web servers you can add another IP address on your web site and change DNS records or you can create virtual web site where your web site will detect which name was in use (in request line) and forward request to appropriate web page.

Good luck.
