is it possible to change the domain name of a hosting package?
basically: I set up the site under domain1.com but Ive now been asked to change the domain name to domain2.com.
I parked domain2.com and now you can access the site via both domain names which is fine but any relative urls within the site still show as domain1.com/whatever… so after a couple of clicks the address bar is back to displaying domain2.com
is there a way where I can get domain2.com to show in the address bar and relative urls instead?
is your domain2 now parked or is it not? parked domains are registered domains but you don’t have any of your own content on it, it only displays a bunch of related ads.
if you’re indeed using relative URLs, then when you’re on domain2, you should stay on domain2, no matter what. Relative URLs are /services/service1.html as opposed to absolute URLs, which are http://www.domain1.com/services.service1.html
Basically, you should be able to point both domain names to the same location on the same server. But you should also do a 301 redirect from non-preferred domain to preferred domain name.
