Can I point both the existing domain name (redpeakoffroad.com) and a subdomain of another (store.redpeakinc.com) at the same time?

Existing site domain is www.redpeakoffroad.com. Would like to change it to be subdomain of new site. I.e. www.store.redpeakinc.com (redpeakinc.com is new site domain) but also come up when people search/ type redpeakoffroad.com.

Thanks

You can add a CNAME to the domain, but I do not know how Volusion works. You would need to ask them if 2 domains can be assigned. You may need to redirect store.redpeakinc.com to redpeakoffroad.com.

Thanks for the quick response. That's how it is set up right now. store.redpeakinc.com redirects to redpeakoffroad.com.

What specifically do I need to ask them? Can two domain names be assigned to one page?

Thanks for your help.

When did you change it? Right now, it looks like it should be good, but can take propagation time

It's been that way for a while. If I click "view" next to my subdomains I get error messages.

The domain is not using our nameservers. It has Wix nameservers, so it isn't seeing the redirect. Do you have a Wix site for that domain? We can reset to our namerservers. Do you have mail on that domain?

For which domain? redpeakinc.com?

I have mail on both redpeakoffroad.com and redpeakinc.com

Is email for redpeakinc.com working for you? I see mailboxes set up on our system, but the DNS is not correct. It looks like all our IP addresses, but the subdomain is incorrect. If it is working, I would rather not touch it, but since that domain is using someone else's nameservers, see if you can add a CNAME in your nameservers for store, that points to redpeakoffroad.com. That should solve your issue.
