I am hoping to find someone who could help me here.
We have two sites, let's say domain1.com and domain2.com. A while back, when the two sites were hosted on different accounts, we redirected some folders from 1 to 2. The way we did it is by adding the following lines into .htaccess (we are on linux server using apache).
For example: redirect [domain1.com
...] Welcome to DOMAIN2.COM
This has worked fine. Since we move the hosting to UH, we hosted the two site in one account by using domain2 as an addon domain. The files are uploaded in a subfolder called domain2. The sites worked fine but the redirections no longer work. It appears to me that the redirections set in the root folder (public_html) .htaccess would also affect on the domain2. I know this because when I tried to set up new redirection lines from page to page (on domain1), I had to add the domain1 root, otherwise it will redirect the same page on domain2.
I hope I have explained the issue as clear as possibly can. Any ideas are welcome, our ranking has dropped since these redirections stopped working.
Thanks in advance.
