    I am using the latest stable WHM/cPanel. Currently one of my users is having an issue with Parked Redirects.

    ::Objective::
    Redirect (www or not).name.org/* to www.name.com/* with * being either a file in web root or a complete path/filename.

    ::Current Setup::
    Added name.org as a parked name.
    Clicked Manage Redirection and entered "http://www.name.com" (no trasiling '/').
    Clicked Save.

    ::Result::
    name.org (with or without www) redirects to Domain Names | Website Builder | Web Hosting - Name.com (desired result)
    name.org/art/index.php does not redrect at all (desired is redirect to name.com/art/index.php)

    ::Attempt to Correct::
    Changed redirect to "http://www.name.com/" (added trailing '/')

    ::Result::
    No change from previous results.

    ::Question::
    How do I get name.org to redirect whether or not there is anything after the .org?

    What you are looking for is Wildcard Redirect.

    Redirects

    That is what I tried but it did not work as I wanted. The original domain still is displayed in the address bar of the browser in all circumstances. I found a way to make it work though. I have no idea if this is 'acceptable' or nit, but I used Add On Names rather than Parked Names. Then the redirects worked with the main domain displayed in the address bar no matter which of the Add On names was entered by the user.

    What you have done is correct.
