    Hi,

    I'm using BlueHost as my hosting company and I have a website hosted.

    My site works fine, I use a redirect from www.mysite.com >> www.mysite.com/forum
    Everything works great

    Now when I add a add on domain such as www.mynewsite.com I cant make redirects work

    I want to redirect www.mynewsite.com >> www.mynewsite.com/dir

    So what I did was in cpanel I went to add on domains then at the Domain Redirection option I chose to setup redirection.

    I said redirect www.mynewsite.com to www.mynewsite.com/dir

    However when I try to access my site I get the following

    www.mynewsite.com/dir/dir/dir/dir/dir/dir/dir/dir/ and so on

    So I tried it this way

    www.mynewsite.com to www.mynewsite.com/dir/ with a forward slash and the same thing happens.

    BlueHost is telling me that the only way you can do a redirect with an add on domain is by editing the .htaccess files.

    BlueHost is saying it is a problem with cPanel

    Are they giving me a bunch of hoopla. Should my redirects work through cPanel?

    Thanks
