Hi,

We can change your license. You just need to move your website to skischoolguide.com and create CNAME records. Please let us know when you are ready.

Hello Yana,

I changed the domain on my server, can you adjust my account that skischoolguide.com will be the main URL? So to be exactly, i have the following CNAME records pointing to your servers:

skischoolguide.com - ORIGINAL - english // on my own server

skischoolguide.co.uk - cname - english
skischoolguide.de - cname - german
skischoolguide.ch- cname - german
skischoolguide.at - cname - german
skischoolguide.nl - cname - dutch
skischoolguide.be - cname - dutch
skischoolguide.es - cname - spanish
skischoolguide.ru - cname - russian
skischoolguide.fr - cname - french
skischoolguide.it - cname - italian

skischoolguide.eu => will be absolete and can be deleted from your system!

Hi,

We will change the domain name. We don't recommend having two domain names for the same language. I'll contact you as soon as we change it.

Hello Yana,

You mean that .de / .at / .ch all in German is not recommended?
I thought that Google values their own countries domain extenstion higher.

Or do you have another reason, something i didn't think about?

Hi Yana,

Are you in the process of migrating now?
At this moment every domein with .nl / .at etc. is showing our main default page or redirecting to skischoolguide.com. Is that normal?

All CNAME etc. in DNS is oke.
My .htaccess file:

# Main website redirect non-www to www
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^skischoolguide.com
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.skischoolguide.com/$1 [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-GT-Lang} ^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^skischoolguide.nl
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.skischoolguide.nl/$1 [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-GT-Lang} ^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^skischoolguide.at
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.skischoolguide.at/$1 [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-GT-Lang} ^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^skischoolguide.be
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.skischoolguide.be/$1 [R=301,L]

RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-GT-Lang} ^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^skischoolguide.ch

For the ease of the process, you may flush all existing cache if that is easier.
Use .com as the main URL and then i will start from scratch.

Hi,

We changed the license . There is no need to add redirect rules for the translated versions. You should add the rules only for main domain name.
