I havean an issue with two Addon Domains both in different folders. Addon Domain 1 redirects to Addon Domain 2. For easy recognition:

  • Addon Domain 1 = Addon1.com
  • Addon Domain 2 = Addon2.rocks

  • The problem is Addon2.rocks redirects to Addon1.com
  • Both use Wordpress
  • Both reside in different directory under one Main Domain Account (Let's call the Main Domain = MainDomain.com)

I read a previous thread that tackled something close to this /Addon Domain from one account redirects to a domain on another account

The previous solution was to have this in the htaccess:
Code:
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(?:www\.)?(maindomain|addondomain if it is a case)\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^ https://%1.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=302,L,NE]
Any idea how can I fix this?

Tried searching for an answer, but I guess the issue that I have is a bit different than with the others. Thanks for the help.

By the wy, just to add, Addon Domain 2 ends with .rocks tld, if that helps

Just to add if it can help, this only happens when I go the homepage. Going to either wp-admin pages, category or post links will not redirect the Addon2.rocks to Addon1.com. It only happens in the front page.

1. Is there a .htaccess in a parent folder that has a redirect in there that is affecting it? Example

/home/user/public_html/domain1.com
/home/user/public_html/domain2.com

and there is a .htaccess in

/home/user/public_html/.htaccess

If this is the scenario, rename /home/user/public_html/.htaccess to /home/user/public_html/ht and open up Incognito mode in your browser to see if the redirect still happens.

2. Are you using seperate databases?

3. Do you have just the default WordPress redirects setup in each domains .htaccess?

Thanks for the reply.

1. No there is no redirect in the parent folder. And yes, there is htaccess in /public_html/

2. Yes. All have separate databases. Separate Wordpress installs. Separate folders of their own. It has one main domain in /public_html/ (named=MainDomain.com) and 6 other addon domains in independent folders. The addon domains include (addon2.rocks) and also (addon1.com).

It seems (MainDomain.com) is not directly affecting the addon domains as the issue is only with (addon2.rocks) which redirects to (addon1.com). And to note, it only happens in the homepage or frontpage of (addon2.rocks). Addon2.rocks/post/ or Addon2.rocks/category/ or Addon2.rocks/wp-admin/ does not redirect to Addon1.com.

Addon3.com, Addon4.com, Addon5.com, Addon6.com are all unaffected. All ends with a dotcom tld, only Addon2.rocks ends with dotrocks. On its own, Addon1.com works without problems.

3. They have separate htaccess file for each wordpress install.

Just to note, the addon domains reside in their own folders like Addon2.rocks is installed inside add0n2.rocks,
Addon1.com resides in Addon1folder.com
Addon3.com resides in Addon3custom.com
And so on.

For your convenience, I included the htaccess in public_html and also the Addon2.rocks addon domain folder

For (public_html) main domain or (MainDomain.com)

# BPS PRO ERROR LOGGING AND TRACKING
# Use BPS Custom Code to modify/edit/change this code and to save it permanently.
# BPS Pro has premade 400 Bad Request, 403 Forbidden, 404 Not Found, 405 Method Not Allowed and
# 410 Gone template logging files that are used to track and log 400, 403, 404, 405 and 410 errors
# that occur on your website. When a hacker attempts to hack your website the hackers IP address,
# Host name, Request Method, Referering link, the file name or requested resource, the user agent
# of the hacker and the query string used in the hack attempt are logged.
# All BPS Pro log files are htaccess protected so that only you can view them.
# The 400.php, 403.php, 404.php, 405.php and 410.php files are located in /wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/
# The 400, 403, 405 and 410 Error logging files are already set up and will automatically start logging errors
# after you install BPS Pro and have activated BulletProof Mode for your Root folder.
# If you would like to log 404 errors you will need to copy the logging code in the BPS Pro 404.php file
# to your Theme's 404.php template file. Simple instructions are included in the BPS Pro 404.php file.
# You can open the BPS Pro 404.php file using the WP Plugins Editor or by using the BPS Pro File Manager.
# NOTE: By default WordPress automatically looks in your Theme's folder for a 404.php Theme template file.

I would start by temp renaming both

public_html/.htaccess
and
addon2.rocks/.htaccess

so they are not used, just temporarily, and then test again just to rule them out completely.

Make sure to use Incognito mode to test as the browser can potentially redirect still if something is cached in your browser.
