I'm hoping that I can get some help/feedback from someone here on how best to approach the following dilemma.
1. Want mysubdomain.mydomainname.com to show as url in browser window when externaldomain.com/subdirectory is visited
I have access to the host records for mysubdomain.mydomainname.com and can also access cpanel and/or the file system directly for my domain name.
2. The external site I do not have access to host records or file system, but there is a directory setup with content that I need to appear as if it were hosted on mysubdomain.mydomainname.com
I am dealing with a developer at the external site who says it is "too difficult" to do domain mapping
Can someone give me the different options that I can share with this outside developer to show him that it is not "too difficult" to do this, but simply requires a few entries in terms of domain mapping to accomplish this or let me know what workarounds I may have?
Can I set this up on my own in either cpanel and/or the host records or would it require that the developer where the content is hosted make some modifications on their end ie: like adding a dedicated ip or whatever needs to be done so that the domain mapping can occur?
Thanks for any ideas or suggestions.
