Multiple domains, same website
« on: November 17, 2008, 11:13:38 AM »
Is it possible to purchase a hosting package from Lunarpages, register 2 seperate domains (one with a .co.uk extension, the other with a .co.za one) elsewhere, and have both domains point to the same website?

Thank you for your interest in Lunarpages for your hosting needs.  We can act as the domain name register for .co.uk, but not for .co.za.  However, you can use any domain name with us, no matter what it ends with as long as you can update your nameserver setting to point at our DNS nameservers.

Also yes, you could set things up to where both domain names point at the same server location.  Hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply. How would I update the nameserver setting to point to your DNS nameservers?

That would depend on who you domain name register is, each has their own way of doing things.  Once your account was activated, we would give you the correct nameservers to point to (if needed).

Ok, thanks. Do I just have to register the two domains seperately then and purchase a webhosting package then go from there?

Hi All, I have a similar question, we've purchased a basic hosting plan with 1 domain, then we bought another domain now without a hosting package as we assume that the 2 domains can share 1 host. Now, I'm having problem configuring the new domain name with the basic hosting plan. What should I do help please :(

Hi Mitch! Thanks for the fast reply. I've tried it already but when i checked our site www.picpaqatar.com,  I Still see "page cannot be found" page, oh btw the 2nd domain was purchased with lunarpages also so I assumed that the nameservers are properly configured with lunarpages also, thanks :)
