I know this may seem a bit of a question in reverse, but I actually don't seem to have a problem I just want to make sure before I proceed.
I have 2 domains
domain2.com and a directory
domain2.com setup as an "add on domain" in the cpanel account of domain1.com so that when I go to domain2.com I am taken to domain1.com/my_directory but the browser shows domain2.com in the addressbar so it looks and acts like and is a separate site.
However when people browse to
domain1.com/directory I want the address bar to show
domain1.com/directory. So I put a redirect in the htaccess file to redirect
domain2.com and it works perfectly, but I think it shouldnt and I'm worried I've done something wrong.
My question is this: domain2.com was already redirected to domain1.com/directory in the first place (I see the redirect in my cpanel under addon domains) so by adding the second redirect in the htaccess file I should be creating a loop!
Could somebody please set my mind at rest and show me why not?
