I have two domains a .co.uk domain and a .com domain. They need to both point at the same content that is hosted at the .com domain.
I have requested the .co.uk domains NS entries be updated to the DNS servers for the .com domain.
Old domain name = website.co.uk
New domain name = website.com
New DNS servers = ns71.newdomain.com and ns72.newdomain.com
So, the NS records for website.co.uk have been set to ns71.newdomain.com and ns72.newdomain.com
I now need to know what to add to the DNS on the new service so that requests for website.co.uk get redirected to website.com
I have currently added two CNAME records
website.co.uk CNAME website.com
www.website.co.uk CNAME www.website.com
But this does not seem to work, lease time is set to 1 hour
Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong or what I have missed out?
Thanks in advance
