    Definitive answer anyone?
    Hopw do you get a domain that is hosted on your server to be parked over (a "cloaked redirect") to a domain that is hosted on someone else's server?

    I have tried setting up the "external" domain on my server, parking the other domain on it then changing the DNS zone records for the "external" domain (basically switching the IP address bit in the A & MX records . . . did I do this right?). This didn't work, the parked domain simply displayed its URl in the addess bar while displaying the LOCAL version of the "external" domain.

    Hellllp!

    Hmm... What are/were your ttl and refresh rates set at?

    Could just be that DNS is still cacheing.

    You may be right . . in the end the simple answer is the old frameset trick as the index.html file to acheive the "cloaked redirect" effect.

    I was SURE there must be some clever DNS way to do it though . . .
