domian pointing

for example -

my forum is on www.DomainA.com

I want www.DomianB.com to point to this domain so that when people type in DomainB.com the forums are brought up showing DomainB.com in the browser (not DomainA.com)

I did this a few years ago and can't remember how!

Help?

1) make sure server allows more than 1 parked domain
2) change DomainB's nameserves to match those of DomainA.
3) log in to http://www.DomainA.com/cpanel and click parked domain.
4) type http://www.DomainB.com and press park.

Once the nameservers change over, http://www.DomainB.com/forums-dir should link to the same thing http://www.DomainA.com/forums-dir does, but will show up as http://www.DomainB.com/forums-dir or http://www.DomainB.com/forums-dir depending on what the user types. The same thing will show up for EITHER though, unless you put the forums directory in DomainB folder only.

this works great for the main page/entrance. When people type in Domain B, it shows that Domian.

However, all of the links point to the original domain (domain A) by default. So once they start clicking it takes them back to Domian A in the browser.

Is there any way to get around this?

Example:
vb is hosted at worldpickemleague.com

I want worldpickem.com to mirror this site so that if someone arrives by worldpickem.com, they never see worldpickemleague.com in the browser once they start clicking on links.

Maybe this isn't possible?

it is possible but there are huge draw backs to it, such as cookie issues, duplicate content penalities for search engines and others. Its not advisible but if you really want to know how just say so and i'll write the post for it
