    I am not sure if this is correct forum to post my issue....but here it is:

    Currently my company website (fwww.akeweb.com) is registered with company called abc.com. Within abc.com i access the account info and I see that there a setting for fakeweb.com under Web Services that point fakeweb.com to an ip address (assigned to one of statis dsl lines) the ip forwarding is setup with option as "Use Simple DNS" entry.

    My company has the main website as www.fakewebinc.com hosted with a different company. The hosting account contains a setting that will redirect from fakeweb.com to fakewebinc.com.

    My issue is that when I am at work logged to company domain, I type www.fakeweb.com and I get error message about web site not found. When I go home using my home pc I type www.fakeweb.com and I get redirected to www.fakewebinc.com.

    Is this problem related to network issue such as access blocking, ip address issue, or something else?

    I have a differnt problem, I click fakewebinc.com and I cannot get there, but I go to fakeweb.com and it works.. hmm..
    A few things:
    - Make sure you have a dedicated IP
    -Once you have found that you do, and what is is, go to domain management and edit the A record to that IP, and you should be good.
    I think that is your problem. I am not 100% sure, I could be wrong. Wait for someone else to reply.
