Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
at present: I'm only using subdomain.domain.com with a free host, without changing domain's DNS, but only adding a CNAME. Temporary I also want users who access domain.com to be redirected to the same subdomain.domain.com
in the future I want to use a paid host for domain.com, keeping first subdomain.domain.com where it is, and this is why I dont want to change domain's DNS.
My question is how to make temporary domain.com pointing to subdomain.domain.com only by using CNAMES ?
(I'm using GODaddy DNS domain, and it takes a while until DNS changes propagate)
my only work-around was to make a redirect on the new site to point to the www address (which then CNAMED to the desired site)
why not simply point domain.com to the proper address? The end page is a service which depends on seeing www.domain.com in the header in order to provide the correct page.
