Domain Pointing question

by LlamaOfDeath / September 11, 2006 12:14 PM PDT

I am using Empowering Media as a web host for one of my websites. I have just bought several other domains, to point to this host; howeaver, it seems after they upgraded their software, it can only be aliased with the entire site, I can no longer alias a domain name and point it to a directory.

The customer support was of no use when I asked for help, only getting "It is not possible for you to set it up that way." as a response.

Is there any way I can use a PHP or Perl script to determine which domain the user went to, and depending on which, it will open a certain page?

I have very limited knowledge with PHP, and couldn't get the refferrer variable to print out correctly...

I know at one point I used a free service called mydomains.com that allowed you to re-direct your names. You set the name-server up to my domains and then tell my domains where to send it (this can include your directories)

On your hosting do you have access to your .htaccess file?

If the htaccess you refer to is in my docroot, yes, I have access to it.

I am not sure it will entirely meet your needs, but do a google search for .htaccess and you will find several articles on its use. Even if it does not work for this purpose, there are some otehr items you can do with it that will be helpful in the long run.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
