Website replication/duplication Jul 1, 2007

Vladimir,

The answer to your question, in the form I believe you intended to ask it, is 'no'.

However, a direct answer to your question would be 'yes' you could have websites with those names, but you would have to own (or have access to) both domain names 'proz.com' & 'user.com'. These are owned and managed by completely different companies and 'user.com' does not offer any hosting services.

Anything before the basic name ('proz' or 'user') is called a 'subdomain', you can have virtually unlimited numbers of these, such as http://subdomain.websitename.com/ and http://websitename.com/. But this doesn't affect the fact that 'user.com' is off limits.

If however, you were using that domain name merely for illustration purposes, then 'yes' you could put exactly the same content under both domain names.

You can also do more complicated things like website replication (for disaster recovery), virtual hosting, cloaking, load balancing a Web site across multiple servers...

Hope some of that helps. If you have specific techincal problems or require professional help with your websites feel free to get in touch http://www.limlom.com/

I already have webhosting with my own http://baranich.com name (registered at other registar) parked to proz.com hosting. But I'd like to have http://baranich.my.proz.com as well. I tried to get answer from proz.com by regular support ticket, but after few days I closed it since there was no reply. I built a lot of websites and know that timely support is vital for good site operation. Especially with database maintenance. That's why I plan to transfer my baranich.com domain to more professional hosting and leave here baranich.my.proz.com. The problem is how to do that since proz.com webhosting seems to be without support. I'll need SSH etc., but if simplest question wasn't answered I can imagine what's gonna be with SSH.

Try frame forwarding Jul 2, 2007

You can leave only this code as http://baranich.my.proz.com/index.html (with copy to index.htm)

------ begin code -----
[head>
[meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; .charset=utf-8">
[title>Vladimir Baranich's Site
[/title>
[base href="http://baranich.com">
[base target="_top">
[frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">
[frame src="http://baranich.com" frameborder="0">
[frame frameborder="0" noresize>
[/frameset>
[/head>
-------- end code -----
(you need to replace all [ for < because I dont find the option to disable bbcode in this forum)

And all user that type http://baranich.my.proz.com is redirected to http://baranich.com without notice and you only need to maintain your site at the other hosting company.

Regards
Roberto Tokuda

thank you, but Jul 2, 2007

My question was not how to make webpages or forward them. Although I appreciate your willingness to help, the problem is not in my ignorance in website building. I "speak" HTML, PHP, mySQL etc. I'd like to know how to change my initially (during creation of website account at proz.com) chosen option to take http://baranich.com instead of http://baranich.my.proz.com.

Ask the administrator to reset your hosting and then register again.
