  • parked domains and cookies

    I registered three domains of the same name but different extensions:

    for example

    I went into the cpanel of and parked the other two domains, which is supposed to redirect users who type in or to the primary site, is a vbulletin site, so all the config.php files make reference to

    when I type in in the browser, stays in the browser address bar

    So I can be logged into, but when I type in, vbulletin tells me I'm not logged in.

    If vbulletin thinks that the user is trying to go to anywhere other than, it will think the user is unregistered. I guess its a cookie issue.

    Can anyone help me? either with configuring my cookie settings in vbulletin or with what I should ask my webhost to do?

    Cookies are domain specific and are not transferable from one domain to the other. There's not much you can do about this. It's best to leave the cookie domain blank, but if someone changes domains the cookie will not transfer.

      The easiest way to do this is to setup and as actual accounts in WHM, then go into Cpanel and redirect them to

        Problem is I have a virtual shared account with venturesonline that only allows one domain, but does allow 10 parked domains.

        Thei help desk gave me the following proposed solution

        [code]RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*website\.com.* [OR]
        RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^.*website\.net.*
        RewriteRule ^/$[/code]

        But I'm not sure where they want me to put this code. At the beginning of the index.php file? Create a .htaccess file with this in it?

        Any ideas?

          .htaccess file in the root public directory of

          Also you'll need to add
          RewriteEngine On
          before the first line of that for it to work.
