“the web site needs a different Googls Maps API key. A new key can be generated at h

I have created a map which works fine for my clients .co.uk website, but they also have a .com which is also opens the same site - The problem is if you come to the site using the .com address you get the following warning '“the web site needs a different Googls Maps API key. A new key can be generated at maps/.'

Please could you tell me how I can get this to work for both using Pro Maps.

Thank you
Dawn

Dawn,
I know this doesn't answer your question, but it is much better to have the .com redirect you to the .co.uk site (and have the address bar change) then just having the .com show you the content from the .co.uk. If you do it the way it is currently working, google will see the .com as duplicate content, and penalize your rankings.

Hi - Thank you for your reply.

The .com adress does just redirect to the .co.uk site, there is only one site uploaded (is that what you mean) - I can post the website address (but wasnt sure if I was aloud to do this here)

Thank you
Dawn

No problems with posting domains.
When you do the redirect, make sure it changes the domain in the address bar from the .com to the .co.uk
If it does, then you should be fine.

How are you doing the redirect? If you are using a hosting control panel, like cPanel, and 'parking' the .com on the .co.uk then you will also need to use an htaccess 301 redirect from the .com to the .co.uk

Hi - Have got onto the people who are hosting the site as I dont have access to the cpanel. They came back with the answer below - Do you know if what they say is correct or am I going to cause myself even more problems??

""The server is actually a Windows server, so htaccess files don't work (they are for apache not IIS). Currently both the .co.uk and .com domain both point at the same site.

To achieve what you want to do, you could change the index.html page to a php page and at the top of the code, check if the domain is .com and if do, redirect to the .co.uk domain.""
