I'd like to donate http://www.berkwiki.org to the WikiSpot cause. Was going to start up my own Berkeley wiki but never got around to it. The DNS settings are set up on my side. —AndrewChen
Hey Andrew I am trying to do a Berkeley Wiki so would it be cool to use the domain for http://cal.wikispot.org. Thanks. —AbhiYerra
The CNAME entry for berkwiki.org is set to domains.wikispot.org. —AndrewChen
2007-04-12 20:54:35 Also, just as a followup, why does http://www.stocktonwiki.org point to wikispot but http://stocktonwiki.org still points to godaddy? Is there something I need to do to get it to work both ways? —mjyoung
It was working just a second ago when I clicked on it so you probably changed something? Make sure that you have the "fowarding" set up — see the section Details on this "forwarding". —PhilipNeustrom
2007-04-12 21:11:31 I believe I did everything that the Custom Domain Page said to do. It points to wikispot if I have a "www" before "stocktonwiki.org" but not if its just "stocktonwiki.org". Also, how do I get my domain to point to http://stocktonwiki.wikispot.org instead of WikiSpot's main page? I'll attach some screenshots of my godaddy settings, maybe that'll help.
Your setup looks good. You need to change the part that says "stocktonwiki.wikispot.org" to be "www.stocktonwiki.org," though. It could be lag on godaddy's end — you'll want to play with it a bit more, maybe (maybe turn off the forwarding and then turn it back on again). It won't point to the actual wiki until the switch is flipped, which I can do once the domain looks like it's set up right. What it should be doing is forwarding you to "www.stocktonwiki.org" when you go to "stocktonwiki.org," and all the pages will look like the main wiki spot hub until we flip the switch. —PhilipNeustrom
2007-04-12 21:22:57 Okay, thanks a lot. I've now changed the domain forwarding to "www.stocktonwiki.org" —mjyoung
Okay, looks like your setup got fixed. I flipped the switch and it should be working now! —PhilipNeustrom
2007-04-19 06:44:58 Hiya Philip, Thank you for all the help with Torontopedia! My brother lives in the city just west of Toronto, Mississauga, and he's started the Wikisauga site. Please activate http://www.wikisauga.WS , we just registered the domain and immediately made correct CNAME and forwarding steps, wikisauga.ws should end up at http://mississauga.wikispot.org . And Yes, we chose .WS that is dot-w-s as the top level domain, it's kinda weird at first blush...but the more we thought about it, wikisauga-dot-wikisauga aka wikisauga-dot-w-s just makes sense to us :-) . —HimySyed
Okay, should be all set up now! —PhilipNeustrom
Thanks a million Philip! I imagine you are backed up beyond belief with things on your to do list and waking up this morning and seeing the domain already resolving is greatly appreciated. :-) —HimySyed
.WS should stand for Wiki Spot. And we should sell all of the TLDs for it. Philip, you need to implement this plan now! —BrentLaabs
At least consider doing that. I kept saying out loud to myself, "wikisauga dot wiki spot" and it works well on a number of points. I registered www.wikisauga.ws using http://www.gimmemydomains.com/ which is a reseller for GoDaddy. Your existing GoDaddy screen shots for domain CNAME-ing and Forwarding were identical to GimmyMyDomain's control panel. Wikispot as a non-profit could also consider becoming a reseller for .ws and offer an option for people to choose a "dot wiki spot" top level domain. the money generated would be low, but the visual is well worth considering : www.wikispot.ws or said outloud, "wikispot dot wiki spot". —HimySyed
2007-05-02 03:38:19 Hi, I would like to setup www.crimsonwiki.net to point to harvardwiki.wikispot.org. The DNS settings are set up on my side. :) —Vijay
Okay, this should be working now! Sorry for the delay — we've been monitoring some server stuff that requires us to not restart things for several days :) —PhilipNeustrom
2007-05-16 01:38:49 Hello~ may I request to have www.westsacwiki.net set up to point to www.westsac.wikispot.org please? Thank you in advance! =D —MasumiWatanabe
Hey Masumi, looks like things aren't quite set up on your end yet. I'm seeing a strange error when I visit http://www.westsacwiki.net/ I'm not familiar with the setup for domaindiscover.com (that's who you're using, aye?) exactly, so it might take some experimentation. It looks like you have a "redirect" from www.westsacwiki.net to "www.westsacwiki.net" which won't work. It should redirect "westsacwiki.net" to "www.westsacwiki.net" and then do a "CNAME" from "www.westsacwiki.net" to "domains.wikispot.org" —PhilipNeustrom
2007-05-25 08:40:11 Hi there, may I please request to have www.ojaiwiki.com set up to point to ojai.wikispot.org? Should all be good on my end. Thanks much!
tyler93023 (tribal core) —tyler93023
2007-06-04 17:27:32 www.yada.org = triangle.wikispot.org ...thanks! —ReidSerozi
Hey Reid, things don't seem set up on your end yet. I'll flip the switch here once they are —PhilipNeustrom
green light, thanks. —ReidSerozi
Okay, should be good to go! —PhilipNeustrom
2007-06-22 23:26:08 Hi, I've set up the DNS at my end for slingshot-game.org - and would like that to point to slingshot.wikispot.org
Thanks, Jon —Musther
2007-07-25 18:53:11 Hey Philip, I picked up www.westsacwiki.org which I'd prefer to use as the top level domain name. May I request a change please? Thank you! —MasumiWatanabe
2007-08-31 05:30:28 Awesome, thanks for your help, Ace! —KarlMogel
2007-09-25 23:35:40 Hi there, followed your godaddy instructions and so if i may request, could you please enable www.theterrace.ws to point to theterrace.wikispot.com. Much appreciated and thankyou for providing such an awsome tool! —Roja
Okay, should be good now. —PhilipNeustrom
2007-09-26 10:49:38 Thankyou very much! Once the term starts i will have a collection for the website :) —Roja
To replace scwiki.org? We can only have one master domain per wiki (on our end). If you want those as aliases you should set up a redirect to scwiki.org (this is apparently better for search engines, too?) —PhilipNeustrom
2007-10-15 06:53:23 The top contributors to the Santa Cruz Wiki have agreed that it makes sense to use scruzwiki.org instead of scwiki.org. (This is primarily because scwiki.com and .net are taken by domain squatters.) So, we don't want to just redirect to scwiki.org.
However, scwiki.org has been used for 18 months now, so although we don't want it to be "primary" anymore neither do we want to get rid of it. Also, the single point of contact for that domain was unresponsive when I tried to reach him, so changing its DNS may prove difficult.
How hard would it be to improve the Wiki Spot code so that it can handle multiple domain names per wiki?
Failing that, if we hosted the Santa Cruz wiki separately would we retain the Interwiki-ness? If not, what would it take to make that possible?
Would it be okay to redirect pages on scwiki.org to scruzwiki.org pages? That's all I mean when I say "master domain." (e.g. see http://www.torontopedia.ca/Quakers and http://www.torontopedia.tyo.ca/Quakers — torontopedia used torontopedia.tyo.ca for a while when they were first getting started) Edit: I'm pretty sure this is what you wanted, so I flipped the switches. It should be dandy now, and no old links should break. Search engines will update their links to point to the new domain, too, because of the type of redirect we use. —PhilipNeustrom
2007-10-17 03:12:46 Awesome; thanks, Philip! My couch is your couch. —Graham.Freeman
2007-11-07 18:15:30 Good afternoon! I would like to request that http://minnesota.wikispot.org please point to http://wiki2.minnesota-vacation-guide.com . The CNAME is set up properly and working on my end. Thanks in advance! Chris. —ChristopherNalty
This should be all set up now. —PhilipNeustrom
Thanks for the super fast install, Philip! —ChristopherNalty
2007-12-17 07:53:29 I would like to setup www.nevadawiki.org so that it points to nevada.wikispot.org. The DNS settings should be good to go. Thank you! —ASUN
Should be all set up and good to go! —PhilipNeustrom
2007-12-17 08:15:33 Sweet. Thanks! —ASUN
2008-02-05 14:02:26 I've today pointed the domain "www.makten.net" to "domains.wikispot.org" for the newly created wiki "makten.wikispot.org" and would like to request a domain name setup. Many thanks for this excellent service! —brunberg
It doesn't look like the "redirect" from makten.net to www.makten.net is set up yet?
You're right. I just set up that direct and it seems to work now.
2008-02-11 23:11:21 Hi Philip, got a new domain for harvard wiki at www.harvardslist.com (people were confused with what a wiki was). Can we set that up to point to harvardwiki.wikispot.org. The DNS settings are set up on my side. —Vijay
Hey, it doesn't look like harvardslist.com is redirecting to www.harvardslist.com.
Hmm, I'm not sure how it got reset. I have reforwarded harvardlist.com to www.harvardslist.com —Vijay
You'll want to make it so when you visit harvardslist.com you're redirected to www.harvardslist.com. I think the way you have it set up right now is so that harvardlist.com is pointed at wikispot.org. You'll want to do a "http redirect" from harvardlist.com to www.harvardslist.com.
Sorry I had Domain stay enabled. I disabled it now. Registrer.com is complete crap, but they have free 1yr domain registration promotion. - Vijay
Should be all set! By the way, there's three odd blocky-non-rendering-unicode characters before the "Harvard's List" title for me when I view your wiki. Also, do you want help making a logo?
2008-02-17 20:08:07 Thanks - I have set up the DNS configuration for NLUG.ORG for the wikispot page, NLUG.WIKISPOT.ORG I believe I am ready to have the processes in Step 5 done, in order to finish the domain name transition. —matthewcraig
2008-02-18 03:58:43 Howdy, if there's anyway to get the new ObsoleteSkills.com pointed to obsoleteskills as quickly as possible, it would be great... it is linked from a fairly high traffic blog. —JabberWokky
Looks like it's still not pointed @ wiki spot:
philip@philip-laptop:~$ nslookup obsoleteskills.com Server: 192.168.1.1 Address: 192.168.1.1#53 Non-authoritative answer: Name: obsoleteskills.com Address: 126.96.36.199 philip@philip-laptop:~$ nslookup www.obsoleteskills.com Server: 192.168.1.1 Address: 192.168.1.1#53 Non-authoritative answer: Name: www.obsoleteskills.com Address: 188.8.131.52
2008-02-18 04:30:27 Nlug folks: the DNS isn't set up right yet — you'll want to set the cname on www and then an http redirect on non-www. Right now it's an http redirect to nlug.wikispot.org —PhilipNeustrom
2008-02-22 16:17:46 could you help to point wiki.yui4j.org to yui4j.wikispot.org? the DNS configuration is done.
Pinging domains.wikispot.org [184.108.40.206] with 32 bytes of data:
fyi, yui4j is a new open source project.
Thank you very much!
Hey, 2008-2-22 @ 11:15AM PST I'm seeing the wiki.yui4j.org domain not pointed here. —PhilipNeustrom
2008-03-07 17:20:20 I have initially setup: http://fwd.wikispot.org/Front_Page. I have registered http://www.fwdwiki.org with GoDaddy and performed the necessary steps on GoDaddy. Can you update your DNS for this? Thanks. Matt Fleming. p.s. I made a donation via Paypal. This is a great site and idea - thanks for your efforts. —mattfleming
The domain should be all set now! In case you don't already know, good places to discuss and ask things: FAQ and Community Discussion (we've got a mailing list linked on that page, too). Best, PhilipNeustrom
I just did a check — looks like it's (at least on my end) not set up yet — www is CNAME'd to "thehoustonwiki.com" and it should be CNAME'd to domains.wikispot.org. It doesn't look like there's a "forward" from thehoustonwiki.com to www.thehoustonwiki.com. Then again, this usually takes a little while to update so I'll check again in a couple hours. —PhilipNeustrom
Okay, now I'm sure everything's working. Sorry for the delay! —TGrantBelgard
Okay, all set! Thanks, Phililp!!!
2008-04-22 22:46:45 Heya Philip, could you setup www.elkgrovewiki.org so that it points to elkgrove.wikispot.org. The DNS settings should be good to go (I just changed it about a half hour ago :) —RodneyBlackwell
2008-05-13 11:58:16 Good Morning Philip and fellow wikispotters, after some internal discussion, we changed the top level domain for Wikisauga from .ws to our Canadian .CA. We found people here in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada found the .WS not as mainstream an idea as we had hoped. In short, .WS is bit too unusual for Canadians. I still feel it's a good top level domain, just not for wikisauga.
We did the necessary CNAME change for http://www.wikisauga.CA pointing to domains.wikispot.org and the necessary forwarding for wikisauga.ca to www.wikisauga.ca .
Philip, can you change make the change. We're abandoning the .WS, it wasn't much linked to so we'll gain more than we'll lose by migrating to Wikisauga.CA. — Thanks!
Good morning Philip - When you get a chance, could you set up www.syracusewiki.org so that it points to syracuse.wikispot.org. I just changed the DNS settings on Yahoo Domains, so it should be all set. — Thanks! —wilfis
It looks like the www (CNAME) part is set up, but the "forward" part isn't — going to syracusewiki.org shows me a yahoo parked page instead of redirecting to www.syracusewiki.org.
When I followed your instructions for creating a domain name forward on Yahoo Domains, I received the error message, "The starting address and destination address could not be the same." I just created a C name record with "*.syracusewiki.org" as the source and "domains.wikispot.org" as the destination. I believe this should do the trick — I have used this method successfully in other scenarios involving domain mapping.
The problem is that when people go to syracusewiki.org they won't get redirected to the right place (they won't get anything right now. This is because CNAME records only work for sub-domains). Try clearing out all the existing settings (CNAME, other stuff) and setting the domain to be "parked" (or something such). Then work through the instructions, creating the "forward" first. I'm thinking it might be that the "forward" allows the syracusewiki.org -> www.syracusewiki.org but only if nothing else has been touched first.
If that doesn't work then I'd try something more clever, like making the forward to "www.syracusewiki.org/Front_Page"
Philip - I reset my DNS settings but still cannot create a domain name forward on Yahoo Domains. To be honest, I'm not so concerned about http://syracusewiki.org not redirecting to www.syracusewiki.org right now. My bigger priority is getting www.syracusewiki.org to point to the pages at syracuse.wikispot.org, rather than to the wikispot home page — which is what happens at present.
Okay, I'll flip the switch once the www-version is set up again. If you feel comfortable, you can change your yahoo domains login details and shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with them and I can take a look — I'd love for the directions up here to be correct but I don't use Yahoo domains myself. —PhilipNeustrom
I have modified the CNAME records to point to domains.wikispot.org, so please flip the switch when you can. Thanks! —wilfis
2008-05-26 19:21:13 I'm setting up bellingham.wikispot.org in Bellingham, WA - I've registered the domain name bellinghamwiki.org, and followed the steps to get it setup, so hopefully once you guys sprinkle the 'magic' on the page it'll work! ;-) —japerry
All set! By the way, I noticed you have "bellinghamwiki.org" forward to "bellinghamwiki.wikispot.org" (which we then forward to "www.bellinghamwiki.org") That'll work, but it might be better to switch it to forward to "www.bellinghamwiki.org" if it's not too annoying to do. —PhilipNeustrom
It looks like you did something nasty to your domain settings — I can't reach the domain now (I could early this morning). —PhilipNeustrom
2008-06-13 01:04:49 VME has decided to turn the woodlandwiki.org domain name over to the WikiSpot cause. I have made the appropriate DNS changes which should propagate out tonight. We all look forward to making the Woodland WikiSpot Wiki better, and hopefully having an appropriate domain name will help in some way. —ChrisLambertus
The DNS changes have propagated, and woodlandwiki.org is ready to direct to woodland.wikispot.org. —ChrisLambertus
It doesn't look like it's fully set up yet — www.woodlandwiki.org resolves to a different site. Also, you probably shouldn't use a A record for woodlandwiki.org pointing to the wiki spot IP — it's liable to change at some point, hence the kind of complicated redirection instructions. —PhilipNeustrom
Fair enough. I was trying to be lazy, but ultimately I just set up an http redirect on that server. I see that the DNS has not in fact propagated correctly, seems sort of halfway there. I'll follow up when I've seen the new names propagate. —ChrisLambertus
2008-07-13 06:45:59 I'd like to setup the custom domain name renowiki.org for RenoWiki on wikispot. Thanks! —DanComing
2008-07-30 10:37:01 I've had the domain http://www.slingshot-game.org working with the wiki http://slingshot.wikispot.org for a long time now, but noticed just now that it's not working, try it and you'll see you go to the wikispot home. Thanks for your help. —Musther
I turned the domain off a couple days ago when I noticed the domain was having issues. It should be all set again! —PhilipNeustrom
Ah yes, the hosting company had a severe server issue, coincidentally I was away and so couldn't do anything. It's all working now, thanks a bunch! —Musther
2008-08-01 02:45:43 hey. I have completed steps 1 through 7 (set up CNAME and forwarding for smadar.org). Can you set us (smadarcsa.wikispot.org) up on your side? Our community really enjoys our wiki. Thanks for all your hard work. —DavidBessler
You should be set! —PhilipNeustrom
2008-08-02 23:29:34 I would like to setup www.wisdompedia.info so that it points to wisdompedia.wikispot.org. Thank you! —Zimarev
2008-09-02 05:14:30 I'd like to have my domain name "www.najja.org" to point to "nj.wikispot.org". I have setup the DNS and forwarding configuration according to your instruction. Thanks! —najja
2008-11-12 00:13:09 I just setup fresnowiki.org to point to fresno.wikispot.org. Kindly point the domain. Donation will come soon. —VictorRamayrat
All set — sorry for the delay.
2009-01-11 22:27:15 Greetings, I just set up the Norwalk Wiki. This is a request to forward the domain. I have purchased "norwalkwiki.org" from godaddy. I have already followed all the steps. Thank you. Be well — Greg Bard —GregBard
All set — sorry for the delay.
2009-01-20 08:57:04 Hello, we wish to use www.dfowiki.org name for our "darkfallonline" wiki. I've done the necessary changes on our dns host. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time. Edit: I had to turn the page to redirection as I don't know when/if you'll have a chance to read this and add the record. But there's no problem with the records, I can change it anytime you're ready. —hellion
Okay, just let me know. I have to do this by hand and I was a bit behind here :) —PhilipNeustrom
All set — sorry for the delay.
All set! —PhilipNeustrom
Hey this is Steve. That would be handy - thanks! SteveLambert
"2009-04-05" Hi, can you please remove http://www.slingshot-game.org from slingshot.wikispot.org, we no longer own the domain. Thanks!
It doesn't look like things are quite set up properly on your end. You want to make the 'www' entry a CNAME to 'domains.wikispot.org', not make it redirect to http://domains.wikispot.org. It's confusing, I know.
There's a fair to middling chance it's working now. I think I've got it right. Sorry to take up your time.
OK. From here it's going to the front page of wikispot.org, which presumably is still wrong. Will try again. Sigh.
www.rattypeaedia.org should look like wikispot.org's front page. rattypeaedia.org should redirect to www.rattypeadia.org
Doh. OK, I think I'm there now. Is there a prize for the longest message series? An RTFM t-shirt?
Hey there. It looks like the domain is redirecting right to irvine.wikispot.org. Can you go through the instructions & set it up again? Thanks -philip
2009-06-11 02:48:09 theUSnovelresearchinstitute —Bai
2009-06-11 02:49:10 It is really necessary to have the new wikispot domain name requested. —Bai
You mean http://camarillo.wikispot.org/?
Yes, that's what he means. Thanks for helping! I'm super excited to get a domain name that people can remember. :) —MicheleTobias
2009-09-25 02:49:56 When you get a chance, please direct http://www.mongolwiki.org and http://www.mongolwiki.net to http://mongolwiki.wikispot.org This is my first wiki, but I believe I followed your directions correctly. Thanks. —chingis
hi, my domain name is still not up and running, is there something wrong with my configuration ... [chingis]
Apologies for the delay. I can only set one domain to be 'the' domain for the wiki. Which of the two would you prefer? You can set the other, slightly-less-loved one to redirect to the slightly-more-loved one. —PhilipNeustrom
2009-11-04 02:35:19 I just wanted to check on CamarilloWiki.org. The address still redirects to WikiSpot's homepage. Is there any other info you need from me to get this to direct to Camarillo.wikispot.org? —MicheleTobias
OK, should be good now.
2009-11-09 04:47:57 Hello, I have two domains that I have configured to point to "domains.wikispot.org" and have enabled forwarding for each. The two domains are SonomaWiki.org and SonomaValleyWiki.org. Thank you and thanks for this service! —csroberson
Which is your favorite of the two? We can only set one "master" domain. You can make the other one redirect to the domain you like best. Having two separate domains (that appear throughout surfing the wiki) is bad practice, too. E.g. http://www.torontopedia.ca and http://torontowiki.ca both work (you'll see he redirected the latter to a specific page on the wiki). —PhilipNeustrom
Philip, I think I wasn't clear. I have two wikis and two domains: http://SonomaWiki.org should point to http://sonoma.wikispot.org while http://SonomaValleyWiki.org should point to http://sonomavalley.wikispot.org. —csroberson
2009-11-13 07:38:34 I think I wasn't clear with my previous request. I have two (2) wikis and two (2) domains:
I would assume that should not be a problem. Am I missing something?
Hi, I wish to associate http://philosophical-investigations.org to http://philosophical-investigations.wikispot.org. I tried several times to reproduce what is shown on your tutorial, but it doesn't quite match what easyDNS expects me to do apparently... values like the @, the www, the forwarding address refuse to stick on the form. If possible... Please help...
Some problems with "inertia" in the address bar. The address I use to enter the site, say, http://philosophical-investigations.org/Perception_and_nerve_transmission will remain in the address bar even if I navigate the site. Some cache is not updated yet, somewhere? EasyDNS tells me that things should be all set in 12 hours, i hope this problem will be solved in the process.
It looks like www.philosophical-investigations.org is set correctly but that the redirect from philosophical-investigations.org to www.philosophical-investigations.org isn't set up. It seems we don't have EasyDNS step-by-step instructions at the moment. You want to set EasyDNS to 'forward' the domain to www.philosophical-investigations.org and ALSO set the CNAME (which you did). I can take a look later if you can't get it working. When you visit philosophical-investigations.org you should be redirected to www.philosophical-investigations.org which should show the wiki spot home page (until we set it up on our end here)
2009-12-07 17:51:28 Thanks. Nothing changed on my end, so I called EasyDNS and they advised me to delete the link pointing from www.philosophical-investigations.org to domains.wikispot.org, so that the former address wouldn't redirect to wikispot's homepage. I believe it's not exactly what I should do, and that it's rather that you have to make a fix on you end so that domains.wikispot.org "means" my site, when accessed thru www.philosophical-investigations.org?
Several things to tweak still (having proper addresses when navigating the site; now, the fact that "wikispot" has reappeared in the address bar, ...), and I must admit I'm a little nervous, because the site should get a much broader exposure around the 10th of this month and I wish these problems could be fixed by then... I'd be eternally grateful. Here's a capture of my form on Easy DNS. Provided with this form, one of you specialists might be able to resolve this in half a minute? ... —PerigGouanvic
Under aliases, change the field "Points to A record (host)" to "domains.wikispot.org" and leave "C name (alias)" alone. Under URL forwarder, change "Forwards to URL" to "www.philosophical-investigations.org." —WilliamLewis
I could tell by your use of the bold font and this "Do this" that it wouldn't work. BTW, who erased my screen capture (see page history)? Here's another one. —PerigGouanvic
Looks like you're almost there. Change the url forwarders to: A record: philosophical-investigations.org forwards to URL: http://www.philosophical-investigations.org you've got a trailing dot in there
Thanks for cheering me up, really, but now it all links back to wikispot, while before I had a partially functioning redirect to the site... I understand we're all volunteers here, sharing a certain vision... if one could provide me with the perfect form to propose to easydns (and some tweaking on wikispot's side?), i'd offer my translating skills (to french) wholeheartedly! — Perig
2009-12-14 00:11:58 —Done! Thanks to Philip Neustrom ! —
2009-12-19 16:09:06 First, congrats on becoming a 501(c)3! Well done.
Second, please point http://SonomaCountyWiki.info to http://sonomacountywiki.wikispot.org. I've performed the configuration at GoDaddy. (BTW, GoDaddy has changed their forms so they don't look like your examples but one can still figure it out.)
Hey, I just checked and this doesn't look set anymore. Maybe double-check or re-enter the settings? —PhilipNeustrom
The CNAME WWW record was set correctly to point to domains.wikispot.org but I had a typo in my forwarding alias. It was forwarding to .org rather than .info. (I've been unable to contact the owner of SonomaCountyWiki.org to see if he is willing to release it.) Hopefully, that will fix the problem. —csroberson

2010-01-20 04:02:15 Hello Wikians, me again. Well, it turns out we can't get the SonomaValleyWiki.org domain, so I'd like to request that we make our other two domains to use the .info domain.
We would like to keep SonomaCountyWiki unchanged:
Here's what we'd like to change
Should be set!
2010-02-08 13:36:51 Hi,
2010-02-27 09:58:08 Hi I'm trying to set up forwarding but my webhost only recognises IP Addresses not domain names. Can you provide an ip address to forward to? This is for http://tenwordwiki.wikispot.org - thanks. —DotSpong
Yeah, you can point it to 220.127.116.11 —but keep in mind that the reason we recommend using the approach here is so that we can change our IP address and not have to have everyone update their domain name settings — so when / if we change IPs, you'll want to make sure you update your domain name settings accordingly. If/when we do, we'll put a notice out a good while in advance. —PhilipNeustrom
2010-03-02 21:43:20 Hi I think I've got everything sorted - didn't need the IP after all! I need www.tenwordwiki.com to point to tenwordwiki.wikispot.org. I've set up the DNS stuff at my ISP end, do you need to do something now? Thanks! —DotSpong
Should be set!
2010-04-11 14:18:16 Hi Philip, due to new DNS setup I've had to change my wiki's hostname, can you wire wiki-to.uri.st to tourist.wikispot.org please (hyphen rather than a dot between wiki and to.uri.st). Keep up the good work, thanks —Peej —Peej
should be all set
2010-06-22 03:03:25 Hello, I've followed the directions above and am looking to get a posse together to emulate the greatness of Davis wiki up here in Olympia. Would you be so kind as to point olywiki.org to oly.wikispot.org? Thanks. —MicahEllison
2010-08-22 19:15:45 Have followed the instructions as outlined and would like to have www.bloomingdaledc.com pointed at bloomingdaledc.wikispot.org - thanks in advance! —ElleCayabyabGitlin
should be set!
2010-09-21 17:33:37 I am the admin for Irvine Wiki and currently irvinewiki.org forwards to irvine.wikispot.org (thanks btw). What would I have to do and what would the process entail to change irvinewiki.org to be the primary address so everything is like IrvineWiki.org/whatever? —Mateo
If I understood the steps correctly, they all applied to changing irvinewiki.org so it redirects to irvine.wikispot.org, then yes. I am fairly certain they have all been done because thats what typing in irivinewiki.org does. It was to my understanding that an actual change of the url, not just a redirect, was more complicated.
You'll need to follow the steps outlined on the page before we can make it work the way the other domains work. If you're okay with the redirect approach then you don't need to change anything
2010-09-24 01:57:47 Hello again. http://www.dentonwiki.org/ is currently redirecting to http://wikispot.org/. Is this normal, and if it's not and it's my fault, how can I stop being so bad at life? My gratitude. —AndrewBroz
Like with Mateo, I need a bit more information. Have you followed the steps at Using a custom domain name? If so, how far did you get? And no... you should get to something like Chico Wiki or Davis Wiki where your domain just "is the wiki". —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards
Nothing wrong w yr setup we have to turn on here.—philip
If I parsed that correctly, thanks, and I'll be thrilled when the turn-on bit happens. If not ... I'm horribly confused.
I turned this on. —PhilipNeustrom
2010-10-02 09:09:53 I've got to know the Davis Wiki when I visited friends in Davis and was amazed. I'd like to check whether something similar is possible in the village I live. Therefore I've set up a CNAME entry for sissachwiki.ch to domains.wikispot.org (for the wiki sissach.wikispot.org). Thanks for configuring this! —ThomasZumbrunn
2010-12-12 04:17:11 I just set up http://www.boisewiki.org, and I'd like it to point to http://boise-idaho.wikispot.org. I've set up the CNAME and domain forwarding as instructed. However, http://www.boisewiki.org currently displays the Wiki Spot home page. I'm assuming there's still a switch you guys need to throw on your end—or is there something else I need to do? Many thanks! Updated to add: This morning when I went to both http://www.boisewiki.org and http://boisewiki.org, both came up as 404 pages. Any ideas what I need to change? —LeslieMadsenBrooks
Not sure what's up with the domains — what you had before, where it showed the wikispot.org home page, is right. Throw up a note here when it's back like that again. I'd suggest just going through the instructions again after clearing out the current domain settings. Once things are set correctly on your side I can turn on the domain name -> wiki mapping. —PhilipNeustrom
Hi Philip, I think things are back to where they should be now—http://www.boisewiki.org points to the wikispot home page. I'd like it to point to http://boise-idaho.wikispot.org, please. Many many thanks! —Leslie
2011-01-07 19:31:11 I've registered with Tierra and followed the instructions for the DNS settings. It's set up for http://www.bethesdawiki.org
and the CNAME

All set over here.
2011-06-13 02:46:16 I have set my domain, wiki.peerpatent.org, to point to domains.wikispot.org as instructed. Can you please set that to bring up the peerpatent.wikispot.org page. Thank you. —ColinSullivan
All set over here!
2011-06-16 00:22:38 I have set my domain, ucdtgsa.org, to point to domains.wikispot.org as instructed. Can you please set that to bring up the ucdtgsa.wikispot.org page. Thank you. —WeiHsienHsu
Please set it so that ucdtgsa.org redirects to www.ucdtgsa.org, then I can switch it on. —PhilipNeustrom
2011-06-18 21:47:27 Hi There Philip,
Helping start up a local wiki for Jakarta, Indonesia. Ready on our end with http://JakartaWiki.org successfully forwarding to http://www.JakartaWiki.org and http://www.JakartaWiki.org is CNAME'd to domains.wikispot.org
Terima Kasih sebelumnya (Thank You in advance, in Indonesian).
2011-08-17 18:14:32 Hi! Could you setup columbus.wikispot.org? I have www.columbuswiki.org pointing to it. Thanks! —JustinEldridge
2011-12-12 19:03:08 Hello!
Here is provider settings now:
Please do final settings for above mentioned domain. Best regards —AndreiDei
All set. Best, —PhilipNeustrom
2011-12-26 02:55:42 Dear Philip, thank you for your kindly support! Please do final settings for two new wikis
The DNS settings are finished
Please, note these are cyrillic domains, see the punycode conversion:
2012-01-23 14:59:06 I have setup everything on my end for wiki.enwhycee.com to point to enwhycee.wikispot.org —EnWhyCee
2012-08-31 06:32:25 Hello! I have set up taswiki.net to go to taswiki.wikspot.org - could you set it up on your side? Many thanks —CharlesGregory
2012-12-11 22:31:36 Can someone make my wiki be a custom domain - MineMyCreeper.org —WikiMaker
2013-03-14 22:28:55 Please Help - We have a wiki spot page with the address: http://gsa.ucdavis.edu It will not load for anyone & we don't where to turn. Who can help? How can we find out site? —toolej
2013-06-17 20:37:53 Hello, please set up domain forwarding for triniwiki.wikispot.org to triniwiki.org. All steps followed so far. Thank you! —TashariElsheikh
2013-06-23 13:46:27 Hello! I am hoping to have my custom domain, carmichaelwiki.org point towards carmichaelwiki.wikispot.org. I have followed all the domain xfer steps and am ready on my end. Thanks! —shaundillon
2013-08-21 05:34:21 Hello, I'd like to set up a custom domain for c-files.wikispot.org so it redirects to wiki.thechipmunks.org. I've set a CNAME pointing to doimains.wikispot.org. already, however, my domain host (DNSPod) doesn't seem to have that redirect option. Can it still be done some how? Thanks. —Vlad
