    I've modified three domains to use the domain forwarder IP in DNS (accounts have been removed, DNS left in place). In Domain forwarding I have added each domain and the page to be directed to. However, when accessing the URL, it takes me to /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi instead of redirecting.

    Domain forwarding entries:

    Code:
    domain.com.au http://www.otherdomain.com.au/page/Safety/
    domain.net.au  http://www.otherdomain.com.au/page/Safety/
    DNS:

    Code:
    domain.com.au 14400 IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    domain.net.au 14400 IN A xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    The above IP is the domain forwarder address. All other redirected domains in the list are working without issue.


    Ideas?

    Strangely has just started working. Caching perhaps?

    Hello :)

    I am happy to see the forwarding now works well. It's likely browser or DNS cache that resulted in the default cPanel page initially loading.

    Thank you.
