Using A New Domain With Old Hosting

Recommended Posts

I've always been slightly confused about this but I'll explain it the best I can.

Say I currently have a hosting service that isn't fully used.

I need to open a new site, but don't want to pay for more wasted space.

I upload my new site (in /newsite/) to my server.

I buy a domain name.

I point the domain name http://www.newsitedomain.com to http://www.oldsite.com/newsite/index.html

Now here's the question. When I go to http://www.newsitedomain.com, will it show in my address bar http://www.oldsite.com/newsite/index.html or http://www.newsitedomain.com/index.html?

I'm pretty sure it'll show http://www.oldsite.com/newsite/index.html since the domain isn't pointing to the root of the server, but I'm not sure.

I'm under GoDaddy.com currently.

I'll give them a call, thanks my friend.

Also, if they click a link will it go to http://www.newsite.com/link.html ?

Yes it will.

Im with GoDaddy also. It was very easy to do. They walked me through it over the phone. Great customer service.

On a side note, what is your website? Mine is VERY slow. My renewal is up at the end of the month so Im looking to go elsewhere.

My current website is http://www.trophyshoponline.com - it does get slow at times as well but I use a redirect script to redirect traffic from trophyshoponline.com to trophyshoponline.com/site/ so I was assuming that was it.

Is yours a business site?

According to DomainTools.com my site has 3500 sites on the same server, where as yours has 240. Howd you do that? :blink: What plan do you have?

Economy hosting - 1 year renewal with linux.

Maybe tell them your site is slow and see if they can move it to another server?

Bubba Bob, I just went to your site it seem very fast, fully loaded in about second.

Could you go to it again if you see this message (to rule out it being a fluke)? It loads in a minimum of 7 seconds for me. The server is much closer to you though...

I called godaddy and their response was pay up for virtual dedicated hosting :rolleyes:

Threaten to cancel, maybe that'll get their attention.

I would expect better from GoDaddy.

Bubba what are you using for the photo gallery. I have a client wanting to make a gallery on their site.

Mike -

I'm using "RokZoom". It's an extension for Joomla created by Rocket Theme. It's not a complete photo gallery per say; just animates & enlarges the photo when you click on the thumbnail.
