Bought another domain –

by on May.17, 2009, under Uncategorized

Hey peeps,

Just a couple of days ago I bought another domain name – I spent a sleepless night getting it configured properly and sent mails/called up the hosting provider like a 100 times to get it working properly. The domain set up process was pretty smooth in itself but was behaving in a weird manner for some sub-domains.

Trying to access invalid pages or certain sub-domains was taking the user to a completely different site (someone else’s personal site hosted on the same server). I figured the host had a .htaccess configuration for the 404 page, which redirect to the main page and that was being used on sites in sub folders as well.

After lots of pain it seems to be working fine now, but am now open for new hosting options which I will look at again once the plan expires. Sadly even in the most expensive plan my current host allows only 7-8 addon domains, which kinda sucks cause you can get like unlimited space, bandwidth, sub-domains, addon domains and what not at ~$4.00 pm which is comparitively alot lower than what am paying now.
