Redirect

Postby vivacomputers » Mon Sep 02, 2013 8:51 pm

I have also another question. I had/have before the Enterprise edition off GTranslate. Now due to too much traffic I had to abandon this but my site has been crawled heavily with by example; http://th.vivacomputers.nl. My traffic has dropped dramatically and also In Google I am not much found anymore.

My question is if somebody knows how to make something in .htaccess to redirect hhtp://sub.vivacomputers.nl to http://vivacomputers.nl/sub without errors.

If necessary I can send the present .htaccess by PM.

Hi,
You may contact your hosting provider and ask about this problem.

I have done this and they gave me some options. The only problem is that when I make a redirect it makes a folder in the root. That folder is empty but when I look in the url I can see also by example /en or /es but they don't point to folders.
I tried many things to make that work but I can't figure it out. Like this the redirect doesn't work.

I am sorry if I don't explain very good and I hope you know what I mean but I really need to solve this because my site is nowhere to be seen in Google.....

It should be configured by your hosting provider. Basically they need to host your sub.domain.com and when a request come to it redirect it to domain.com/sub. If your hosting provider isn't able to do that, you need to find another host which can host your sub.domain.com and make the redirect for you.

Well this doesn't help me much but if this is the answer then I will go back to them again with this. Still I don't understand problem with the subfolders which are created and that is my problem.

Anyway thank you....

The subfolders are being created by your hosting system as a result of your actions, not us.

I know and I am not accusing you but I am trying to understand how I can redirect without making those folders since GTranslate is not using them. So meaning the redirect has to point to GTranslate....

Also for this I give up because the support is a crying shame. I want to put a alert for those who want to buy the Enterprise version:

1. Be careful because there is a data limit! It is not clear when you order but if your site is big and has a lot off pages and you activate a lot off languages then you will run out off data space very quickly and get a bill!

2. Once you go from Pro version to Enterprise version and decide later to go back to Pro then you will end up with a lot off broken url's! Your site is indexed on the Enterprise version like http://en.yourdomain.com and goes back to http://www.yourdomain.com/en which there is no redirect to because they will only help or point you to your hosting. Maybe this is so and there is no other way but it is fair to be warn in advance that this will happen when you change your mind and your traffic will fall down like hell.

The positive is that the software is very good but I wish that the above was clearer then it would save a lot off frustration.
