View Full Version : Portals for DotNetNuke
04-13-2009, 10:25 AM
I am running DotNetNuke on DiscountASP. I want to add Parent portals using domain names. Do I need to purchase Domain Pointers for each domain. Also, if I use a domain pointer will it automatically pick up on DNN functionality once I register it as a portal in DNN?

I am not sure about the DNN side of things. Hopefully someone else can comment on that. I can tell you that you will need the domain pointer addon for any additional domains that you want to use with your account.

Yes the DNN will pick up the pointing of the domain name as long as you have created a dedicated portal for this domainname

Is it possible to get more details on how this would work? I've been trying to get our second domain to point to a DNN portal and I've read through every thread I can find on the forums and I'm not seeing something that will work for us.
I have DNN installed under http://www.ourdomain.com/dnn/
I have a portal set up at http://www.ourdomain.com/dnn/clientdomain/. It's set up as a parent portal and has www.clientdomain.com as an alias.
I have www.clientdomain.com registered under DAP's domain pointer manager and I have the name servers pointed at DAP's name servers.
I need http://www.clientdomain.com to go to http://www.ourdomain.com/dnn/clientdomain/. Currently it's just going to http://www.ourdomain.com/
I know DAP doesn't support pointing domains at subdirectories, so is there any way to get around this?
johjoh68 mentioned that DNN will pick up the domain name automatically. Can you help with more specifics?
Thanks so much!

Did you create a redirect script so that 'www.clientdomain.com' will automatically get redirected to 'http://www.ourdomain.com/dnn/clientdomain/'? You may want to look at this kb article. It has a good example code of a redirect script. Even though the kb article was written for subdomains it still can be sued for different domain names.
