I have installed a "test" version of OC 1.4.8b at http://www.csillamvilag.com/testshop

Thus, that's my default store.

I have added new stores,
e.g. Hennalap.com, giving Store URL as http://www.hennalap.com/

I have pointed my domain hennalap.com to http://www.csillamvilag.com/testshop

This way, I have achieved qualified success in using multiple domains with multistore on a single OC installation.

When I go to http://www.hennalap.com/ everything seems perfect - just as I want it.

However, when I go to http://hennalap.com/ there's a glitch...it seems to take me to default store, with default information pages, default template etc

Please help!

Have you check the template for your second website? You can check it in SYSTEM > SETTING > STORE. Don't forget to select your store from EDIT STORE combo box on top of the admin page.

Each store you added will use Default template, but you can change it.

Hope this help u :D

The settings (products, description, template etc) are being picked up correctly for http://www.hennalap.com but not for http://hennalap.com which seems to use the default store's settings.

thats because the non www version is a totally sperate website in the eyes of the cart (and rightly so) simple fix is to foward all non www to the www version and problem solved.

Why rightly so? Is www. considered a subdomain? In that case, if I specify store URL as hennalap.com instead of www.hennalap.com, will it work for both?

Easier done than said. Tried it out.

When I give my store URL as hennalap.com, it works for both hennalap.com and www.hennalap.com

But when I give store URL as www.hennalap.com it works only for www.hennalap.com

Solved.

Haven't looked at it as a subdomain before, in away it is as if the main record in the DNS is the non www versionn then you have to specify the www to point to the same IP as the main address, likewise you have to set apache up for both as well.

As a general rule of thumb for best practise in terms of SEO only use ONE of them, either www or non www (and 301 redirect the other one), other wise your page rank will get split between the two address which is bad as google see's them as two seperate websites (but thats a whole other thread).
