    Greetings,
    A group I volunteer for has asked me to look at this and I'm stumped -

    They have 2 domains pointing to 2 Joomla sites (representing different parts of the organization)
    Both are under the same cPanel account - NPO1.org is top level NPO2.org is parked and in a folder under NPO1 - no problems here so far...
    They are running a campaign called "give" and have purchased a 3'rd domain NPO3.org which is parked and redirects to NPO2.org - no problem
    They have (already) created ads directing users to NPO3.org/give. The intention for this is that it lands at NPO2.org/give which is an existing page on the NPO2 site -
    When I create a redirect in cPanel (NPO3.org/give - redirect to - NPO2.org/give) NPO3.org/give takes you to NPO1.org/give
    Any thoughts? I have suggested that these should be separate cPanel accounts, they don't like this idea (sigh)
    again, just to be clear
    NPO1 is TLD
    NPO2 is parked and in a folder under NPO1
    NPO3 is parked and redirects to the NPO2 folder (no problem)
    Web address - NPO3.org/give lands at NPO1.org/give instead of NPO2.org/give

    Many thanks for any help you can offer!

    Hello :)

    These should be Addon domain names instead of Parked domain names. This chart helps explain when you should use an Addon domain instead of a Parked domain:

    Thank you.
