Domain Pointer Question

Discussion in 'DNS/Domain names' started by GScom, Aug 27, 2011.

  1. I have a few domain pointers that are working fine, however it won't let me add a domain pointer for a domain that is hosted with Winhost already.

    I have and and I wanna have the resources (database, images, etc) stored on site1 but have all the pages actually be from site.

    Is there a reason I can't set this up?

    Yes, it would cause DNS conflicts. You can host your resources on one site (database/images), but you need to reference them correctly in your code of your other site. In my opinion, this is not a very good implementation as you would be initiating unnecessary HTTP calls which would ultimately slow down your site.
  3. OK this sounds good. It is just for an archived site so performance isn't essential. It is just there for reference - used maybe once a month.

    Thanks both.
