A friend of mine has a website and he bought some domains and tried to make them all redirect to the domain his website is using. In the process, something went wrong.
On his website he has a structure like:
After the redirects, if I type secondaryDomain(dot)com in the address bar of the browser I'm redirected to OriginalDomain(dot)com, but if I type secondaryDomain(dot)com/index(dot)html I'm no longer redirected, but a page identical to OriginalDomain(dot)com/index(dot)html is loaded; similarly, if I type secondaryDomain(dot)com/topic1 I'm not redirected, and a page identical to
OriginalDomain(dot)com/topic1 is loaded; same with topic2, but with topic3 I DO get redirected to OriginalDomain(dot)com/topic3!
Anyone knowing what this means and how can it get fixed?
Thanks for taking the time to read this!

I didn't do it so I don't know what happened. I'll try to answer your question as well as I can: he had been using the CMS on lunarpages (dot) com, and all the redirects are 301 - permanently moved.
Does this answer the question or is it something else you wanted to know?
Thank you for answering so quickly!
Only later did I ask or did he tell me about having accounts set up for these domains using my WHM
So when I brought in my "mynamesvr.com" domain name and set it up using WHM (i had already managed to use up all my dedicated IP's with my other reallycool domain names) the WHM panel placed the "mynaesvr.com" onto some other "shared" IP adress.
Q1)....*****Does the domain name that is merely functioning as a name server even have to be on a C-panel account? Can it be on a C-panel account if I wanted it to do something else? Or is the "mynamesvr.com" domain name effectively "used up" doing it domain name server chore?****
Either are your messages a veery complicated solution to my problem (this is a joke, eh?), either are they trying to describe a problem you have - this really seems to be the case.
I can't figure out a solution to your problem, sorry, hope you'll find a solution soon. If it doesn't have anything to do with redirects gone wrong (because this is the title of this thread) it might be difficult to find by those who might help you.
Going back to my issue, I think asking a simpler question could help me find a solution faster.
A redirect has been made for
When I type
I am redirected towards the
but when I type
I'm no longer redirected, but a page identical to
www(dot)OriginalDomain(dot)com/index(dot)html is loaded.
Any idea about what could cause such a behaviour? Or anything similar?
I don't want someone else to solve my problem, I just need a tiny idea to know where to start with searching for a solution.
Thanks a lot for reading and tons of gratitude for your help.
