#10236 assigned Question/How do I...?

New domain for films.culturesofresistance.org

Reported by: Arthur Phillips Owned by: Dana
Priority: Medium Component: Tech

Sensitive: no

Description

Cultures of Resistance and CoR Films are in the midst of a revamp, part of which is updating the domain name for our film side. We're planning to change this from films.culturesofresistance.org to culturesofresistancefilms.com. We would like the existing site to redirect to the new domain.

What would the next steps in this process be? We already have the new domain. Thanks so much!

Hi,

Are you adding this to the same hosting order where films.culturesofresistance.org is? If so here's the details on how to add a domain to an existing account

You're also going to have to configure the new domain to point to May First nameservers are referenced here.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Hi, thanks for getting back and sorry for the delay in responding. We're hoping we can redirect all current traffic to culturesofresistancefilms.com. So that when you go to "films.culturesofresistance.org" it automatically redirects you. Is that the same as adding to the same hosting order?

I'm working through the directions of adding a new domain to an existing account. I just want to be sure that I'm doing it the right way for this purpose. Thanks!

Sorry if the previous comment was unclear. I'm trying to figure out whether we need a new hosting order to make culturesofresistancefilms.com our primary domain name for our films site. Then we'd want films.culturesofresistance.org and other variations to be alias names. Is it possible to change the main domain name without making a new hosting order?

Thanks!

Hi,

One thing you're going to have to do is change the nameserver settings where the domain was purchased, right now it's not using MFPL nameservers, you can see that here: http://who.is/whois/culturesofresistancefilms.com At Network Solutions you'll have to change the name servers to

a.ns.mayfirst.org 
b.ns.mayfirst.org 

The culturesofresistancefilms.com was also listed on another hosting order, so I disabled them here: https://members.mayfirst.org/cp/index.php?area=hosting_order&hosting_order_id=1001992&service_id=9 so they are only active here: https://members.mayfirst.org/cp/index.php?area=hosting_order&hosting_order_id=1000411&service_id=9

I believe that should work, once the name servers is changes.

Let us know if that does it.
