But first you made the domain co.cc options and then installed joomla
first joomla then the domain??
Joomla and co.cc are totally independent of each other.
Joomla is CMS - content management system
co.cc is well just a domain and it’s owners(Good Koreans in Sothern part) allow you to use their sub-domain.(free of charge as you already might know).
It is not so-important as to what came first - chicken or the egg!
So, select any one of the following method which suits you more.
#1 Change of domain first and then Joomla installation:
If you don’t want to mess around with dead links, change domain name first and then install Joomla.
*Dead Links – urls pointing to location/object that doesn’t exist.
Also, you can avoid this ‘Dead Links’ situation if you have the basic HTML knowledge.
And also, this ‘Dead Links’ situation is only applicable when Joomla installation is “not a fresh” copy.
For example, you had Joomla installed somewhere else and now you are it moving here.
Change your main domain using:
*NOTE : You will forgo your current x10 domain name.
After that, check Advanced DNS Zone Editor in your cPanel.
They should point to your co.cc. (It should be automatically set).
Also, visit co.cc and change dns nameserver setting to
Done!(And yes wait for 48 hrs atleast!)
In the mean time you can copy (not install)* Joomla in your allotted directory using cPanel/ftp.
But, your co.cc address won’t be accessible for 48hrs so you can’t use backend or frontend service of Joomla yet.
* copy (not install) - also depends on your knowledge of php/mysql.
If you are in a hurry, then go ahead.
Install Joomla first; take a moment or two to congratulate yourself on your website and see if everything is working just fine.
Then, change domain as outlined earlier.
And, wait for 48 hrs.
If you are in super-duper hurry, then go multi-tasking - just use URL Forwarding service of co.cc.
Install Joomla here in x10 and at the same time change url forwarding setting in co.cc.
URL Forwarding Setting
Redirect To(URL) : http://yourx10domain
Page Title : Your Page Name
Frame : URL Hiding (Hide real address, Display CO.CC address)
Description : Fill it as applicable
Keywords : Fill it as applicable
And, see the instant results.
Best thing about the third option is that you don’t loose x10 domain name.
My Best Wishes!
