Ok, I am buying a resellers package. However I don't know how to redirect domains to each account. IE, www.teen-coaster.co.uk pointing to an account within my resellers account??

Does anyone know how to do this??

Many thanks!

Hi There

I guess your domain is not with the hosting company so wont be automatically linked. So you will need to point the domain dns name servers to your hosting space to get full use of it, if they allow this. Who did you get your hosting with in the end..

Kind Regards

Chris, if the domain www.teen-coaster.co.uk in not being hosted on your resellers account, you can simply have a redirect on that site to point to one on your resellers account.

It would be better is you actually hosted the above domain on your resellers account and all you would need to do is change the domains nameservers to that of your hosts. (as Chris/ Chilled design has mentioned.)

It will be something like:

Pri: ns.yourhost.co.uk
Sec: ns2.yourhost.co.uk

Simply ask your host what there nameservers are, and make the change.

Some questions to ask any host before signing up is what is the server spec, server load and bandwidth provider. Also worth noting that be cautious of hosts offering unlimited webpsace or bandwidth. www.unlimband.com

Sorry, only just had a chance to reply :)

I will be hosting with Simply.com

I won't be launching until March so I can get used to the whole Plesk Cpanel, get through teething trouble etc.

Ok to make it easy to start with, my other domain teen-coaster is registered with Simply.com. It's NS are NS.simply.com etc. If I want to point that domain to an account within my resellers account how do I go about this? I am using Plesk so maybe you can help DesignR

Many thanks in advance!

If your domain is already hosted by them, all you woudl need them to do is ask them to move it onto your resellers account. As for adding other domains to your account, all you would need to do is change the domains nameservers to that of your resellers account.

Simply should be able to tell them what they are. Do you know what Plesk CP they are currently using? We just upgraded ours to the latest 5.0.4, which has many extra features then 2.5.

If you need any further help, let me know. Although Simply hosting should be able to answer all your questions.
