Redirect foo.forumotion.co.uk to www.foo.com?

Post by dave-r on July 15th 2010, 2:48 pm

Hi,

We have our own domain ("foo.com") that was purchased outside of Forumotion. I have set up our forum with a "personalised domain", so now www.foo.com does display our forum. Which is great!

However Google will now see duplicate content which is an issue. So I need to redirect anyone visiting the forum via foo.forumotion.co.uk to www.foo.com (using a 301 Redirect).

I could do this using mod_rewrite (see: http://groups.google.com/group/only-validation/web/fix-canonical-issues-www-vs-non-www-and-more-on-apache-server?pli=1) but of course we don't have access to this Smile

Does anyone have any suggestions?

No... Like this...

My site is http://opori.net/

And we can still open it via http://opori.forumotion.net/

That's the problem...

Hello,

I'm sorry but there is no way to hide the free sub-domain .forumotion.net.
