We also had some difficulty at first with the URL record and solved it on a different way.
  Basicly we put 2 records, both an A and URL record like:

www.yourdomain.com A    86400
www.yourdomain.com URL  http://web.someisp.com/~myname/site  86400  The A record points to a webserver that listens on a dedicated IP. In  the webroot we placed and index.php scripts that looks for the  $_SERVER[HTTP_HOST] string in the request. It then looks into the  powerdns mysql db for the URL record and does a " header("Location:  $destination"); " to redirect the user.

We finally made the move from Windows PowerDNS to Linux PowerDNS and we are
extremely happy. No problems so far after 5 days. Everything working as

We have tried to use FancyRecords for domain forwarding but cannot get it to
work. We set urlredirector to point to a live DNS server and still no luck.

Can anyone help us in using FancyRecords? Or better yet, what would be the
correct way to forward a domain name to another domain name?

www.domainname.com goes to www.newdomain.com

Any help is greatly appreciated.
