Clicked pages loading as mywebsite.000webhostapp.com/example.html and not my domain/example.html


#1

So I made a website and got my domain to link as my point domain. I have Wordpress installed.

When I visit my website at mydomain.com, it goes to mywebsite.000webhostapp.com page but the URL bar says mydomain.com. when I click a link (for example the Wordpress default “Hello World!” tester blog) it’ll go to mywebsite.000webhostapp.com/2017/07/hello-world instead of mydomain.com/2017/07/hello-world.

I’ve had it done before on other websites where I have hosting with one place and a domain from another, the host had its own URLs but when I pointed my domain there they turned into URLs from my domain.

Like I should be able to access my Wordpress dashboard from mydomain.com/wp-admin but I can’t.

Could it be because my domain link is new? Its been about 24hrs since I started on everything.

I also at first had to link my domain as a parked domain, let my domain host calibrate the cname from changing the DNS (couldn’t do it manually), then deleted it and linked it as a pointed domain link by the cname record. Im not sure if that has affected anything.

I fixed this for you, you can now access all parts of your site using your custom domain.


#3

I checked after you posted this, and it still wasn’t working on my custom domain.

I decided to give it a few days, maybe to callibrate or something. Now, I cant even access the website from my custom domain. It keeps saying cant find server.

Try this


#5

Thanks. I just tried this and it is already set to my domain.

On my phone, it says it’s a DNS error. I check my DNS settings and it’s the correct ones. Should I try contacting the company that I have my domain with?


#6

Just try flushing out your cache/history/data dns cache on devices that still aren’t loading it.

Have you correctly pointed your domain to ns01.000webhost.com and ns02.000webhost.com yes?


#7

I did all of that. And I rechecked that the domain was pointed to the ns01.000webhost.com and ns02.000webhost.com

If anyone would like to check my domain is marisa-lander.com

It’s not showing up for me on my phone or my computer


#8

I can’t see any nameservers listed.

Can you screenshot your registrar domain page showing the nameservers correctly?

#10

How can I pull up this to view? I’m interested to see what the cname tab says. On 000webhost it says my site is linked by the cname

Should I try unlinking then relinking my domain on 000webhost?


#11




NSs haven’t fully propagated yet.

#15

Should I check with 1and1 about why the nameservers still haven’t propagated? It’s been well over 48 hours since I did everything


#16

I just went ahead and called…1and1 said everything is fine on their end and that with the hosting it’s not getting something for the A record or it’s showing there’s no IP address?? Idk I didn’t really follow what he was trying to say. Now it’s becoming stuff I don’t understand lol.

Should I try unlinking my domain in the cpanel and relink it?


#17

There should be no A records whatsoever, we don’t use them. Can you try setting up your domain using the CNAME method?


#18

There no way for me to edit the cname on 1and1. It only lets me edit the nameservers and you can edit the cname for a subdomain, that’s it

When I first tried to link my domain it wouldn’t link. It kept saying I needed to update the cname and I couldn’t do it I just did the nameservers and hoped maybe it would calibrate something with the cname. So instead of linking the domain as a pointed address, I parked it. Then it finally let me link my domain and on my backend of 000webhost it says it’s linked by the cname.


#19

If you can only edit nameservers, try using Cloudflare so that you have a full DNS zone. The tutorial below will help.


#20

Thank you! Is there an MX records I need to add? It says there’s no MX record


#21

You don’t have to, it just tells you that.
