  1. Hi, hope this is in the right place.

    Basically i cant figure out how to add my bought domain (www.gangforce.co.uk)

    to my already constructed .moonfruit.com website.


    Any replys would be appreciated! Thanks.

    I'm no website expert, so maybe this is the wrong question, but my first response is a need to clarify exactly what you want to do - move your content to the new domain, or have the new domain redirect to the existing site?

    good call there billyellis.

    the domain name (www.gangforce.co.uk) would be inconsistent with a website
    constructed .moonfruit.com name.

    So you've got the domain name, but how is .moonfruit.com hosted? Did you
    purchase a hosting solution to get .moonfruit.com online (hum; constructed != online)

    If you want one domain to support multiple sites, the the DNS needs to be configured
    for subdomains, eg
    Code:
    DN=gangforce.co.uk   (the basic domain name)
           www.           (the normal web subdomain)
           moonfruit.    (your exisiting site)
    
    To access moonfruit, the url would be www.moonfruit.gangforce.co.uk
