"path forwarding" is usually termed as "subdomain on subfolder" which is NOT forwarding or redirection at all, it is simply making a virtual host root folder point to a physical location on a drive that is already part of another virtual host.
So whomever they are should get their terminology right!
Im not getting in an Argument here but chris I have forwared domains using this technique , I have made 3 websites redirecting to my one site which is the only one which is hosted..the other 3 domains are just registered with a Big Reputed Domain company i do not wish to mention the name....and in their control panel for every domains there is this service which helped me to redirect the other domains to the one I want...
The One Hosting which is there is with another provider too...
What i mean to say is I have 4 Domains registered with One Provider and 1 Hosting with another provider...
The other 3 Domains get FORWARED to the one hosting which I have...and I think this Serves the Purpose of the OP's question...isnt it??
If the Terminology is incorrect i think people would have not considered them or voted for them to be the top providers
So there is no requirement of arguring on what the TERM is called...as if this reputed company calls it Domain Forwarding i dont feel the need to worry wheter the term is correct or not
it serves the purpose
