Home Forums Other Very confusing URL problem Re: Very confusing URL problem


a ping to the 2 separate addresses shows them go to the same address ( so the DNS’s are pointing the right way. It is likely a server config issue. One that you may or may not be able to fix yourself. Submit a ticket to your hosting company.

You can also try this to mask the problem. Place this in your .htaccess in the web root:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

It might not work if the server is hosting information from a completely different (internal) location, if that is the case then you need to wait on your hosting company.

***EDIT*** the .htaccess won’t work… it’s an Apache server ‘thing’. If your host is actually using IIS7 then it will ignore it. Sorry – My post itself has been unedited so you can see I meant well :-)
