Forward domain without forwarding subdomain

Is it possible to forward a root domain to another website (www.example.com forwards to www.newlocation.com), but not forward a subdomain (subdomain.example.com does not forward to subdomain.newlocation.com)?

Re: Forward domain without forwarding subdomain

Hello @asapjen1


The easiest and fastest way to redirect your domain (but keep your sub-domain active in the same place) is by using a index.html file (in your domain public_html folder) with a meta refresh to create an instant client-side redirect.

 

You can see an example here:

God luck. 🙂

@asapjen1

Yes this is possible,   I just forwarded,   a domain and my sub domains

were not affected in cPanel

 If your in cPanel just go to forward domain

 and send it to your root index,   or using http protocol.

Re: Forward domain without forwarding subdomain

Hi Adrian8, I have a question very similar to what has been asked here. 

 

I have a domain a.com that has been masked to show as b.com. 

On the web page a.com, I have an URL that takes me to info.a.com. 

With the current masking, when I click the link, to go to info.a.com, it still shows b.com. 

 

How do I limit the masking to only apply for the home page a.com, but not the link info.a.com? 

 

Thanks,

Harish

Re: Forward domain without forwarding subdomain

The forwarding options for the primary domain and the sub-domains can be configured separately.  If you follow the instructions listed here for the primary domain, that should allow you to keep the current subdomains and forward the main domain: https://uk.godaddy.com/help/forward-a-domain-12123.
