Hi.

I didn't know where to post this thread, but i'll try here.

I have a webserver with domain, that uses cPanel.
Now, I have a site on that domain/server, but I also have a subdomain with another site.
I bought a domain for this other site.

Now, my question is:
How and where can I find the DNS adress for my subdomain(s), so that i can DNS-Forward it to my new domain.

I've been trying everything.

Hope hearing from you soon.

Can you clarify the siutation a little please?

You say that you have a server with a domain name on it, lets call it server A with yourdomain.com, and elsewhere "with another site", which I take to mean on another server or with another service provider, you have a subdomain.

This is a subdomain of what? Is it subdomain.yourdomain.com or something else?

Can you be a little more clear about the subdomain and where it is. "with another site" doesn't quite paint the picture.

I think my brain is a bit slow today.

If all you need is the IP address of myothersite.mysite.com, you will see this when you ping it.

Do you know how to ping a domain? If not, tell me what operating system you are running - not on your server but on the computer you use.

Oh right. I knew that! :P Hehe, didn't cross my mind at the moment.

So i just use the IP i got from

Pingin blabla.mysite.com [000.00.000.000] with 32 bytes of data.? Right? The ping was all zero's just so you know..

?

EDIT: I found out that the adress i found out with pinging, i already knew, and tried. This is what i got from using that IP as DNS forward:

There is no website configured at this address.


You are seeing this page because there is nothing configured for the site you have requested. If you think you are seeing this page in error, please contact the site administrator or datacenter responsible for this site.

Domain forwarding,

Domain forwarfding is actually done at the DNS level, who's DNS servers are your domain on [myothersite.com].

I assume that the domain was registerd with the hosting company that registered it for you... if so then just ask them to forward the domain to the subdomain. They're ripping you off if they want to charge you.

If you registred the domain your self through someone like godaddy.com then you can often leave the domain on thier DNS servers and setup forwarding your self through thier managment console.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
