RE: Redirect domains
You can use the alias function in ispCP.

RE: Redirect domains
Login as Customer -> Manage Domain -> Add alias
Create the alias and set the URL to Forward.

The Reseller reseller must accept this alias.
So you need to log in as reseller and activte it.

Thanks for the help and I am really sorry to be a noob on this, but Im afraid I cant afford to trail and error with domains. I really have no idea what alias actually does; what do the the various options do?

I have three option boxes Domain name (is this the domain to forward or the destination?) Directory mount point (what goes here?) Forward to URL (defaults to no do I insert the domain to forward to?)

For example I have http://www.example.com and I want to forward all the web traffic to http://www.example.co.uk but keep email on this server.

You help is much appricated.

RE: Redirect domains
There is no "domain forward" as you think - the domain alias is a workaround: its another virtual host ina apache but can point to the same directory and therefore to the same files - but it's another virtualhost.
A Serveralias would be easier but this is not implemented yet...

RE: Redirect domains
Well, you can afford to "trial and error" my friend, because this software is still in development. You should not be using it in a production environment Wink

Thanks for the feedback, we definitely need to improve the documentation further fo new comers and non-technical people. Especially in the "customer control panel" since they are not necessarily technical people.
