    All this is for my friend who wants to use the website for himself.

    He already has his own domain, but he still wants me to host. (The website is pretty big with a MYSQL database) So I don't know what to give him in order for the website to be forwarded...


    Right now I am using 1and1 for hosting and the site is residing at a temporary subdomain. chem.websitegoeshere.com

    the location of the website physical location of the website is: (This info really does not make sense to me) /kunden/homepages/1/5555555555/htdocs/chem


    Do I have to keep the website at chem.websitegoeshere.com and give him that address for him to forward his domain? If so is there anyway for it be where people don't see my domain and just see his?


    Thanks!

    Contact your host and ask them to set up a domain pointed to the specific directory in your account.

    That's confusing, but you can use "add on" domains, with cpanel. That will allow multiple domain names to use the same host. It will also mask the domain name the name and use the one the person typed in as long as you've used relative urls.

    Add his domain to your account and have him change the nameservers to point to 1 and 1.

    Hey guys thanks!

    I was looking how to do that in 1and1 yesterday.

    Just spoke with this kid and turns out this kid really only has a partial subdomain. It is like ctr.usf.edu/xxxxx

    Where multiple groups use that subdomain...


    Looks like he might have to host the files and I continue to host the database.
