Url Address Changes

I added a redirect to main.php. When I enter in www.youraddress.com, it puts in the url section http://server???.tchdns.com/~test/main.php. How can I keep it to be the www.youraddress.com on the address line?

 

Also, I tried creating an index.htm file that was a frame to direct to this, however it does not like the index.htm file and does not redirect.

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, and glad to be here. in CPANEL, I went to the "Redirects", I then added the redirect as a permanent one as shown below:

http://server???.tchdns.com/~userid/index.htm. This did not work, I then changed to be:

http://server???.tchdns.com/~userid/main.php. This did work.

 

After looking @ the documentation, I tried the forwarding feature, using the MASKING option. I realized I had to put in a forwarding url and decided to put in www.yourname.com. I then received an error message, and it directed me to a page that said something to the effect that an error occurred and they had to check it out.

 

My goal is to keep the URL Address there and not have the below:

http://server???.tchdns.com/~userid/main.php.

 

Thanks,

Hi DPK,

 

Welcome to the forums! :thumbup1:

 

Unfortunately it is against our policies to direct traffic through the server domain name in any way. You must have all traffic go through the domain name that you have established with your account.

 

The people who run the Abuse desk might have a mind to take you asside and whip you with a wet noodle if they get hint you are doing that. Please change that to avoid any floggings. :blink:

 

Take care!

The server address is only supposed to be used while your domain propogates (initial setup of your account). Totalchoicehosting.com and all the other sites keep their addresses up there in the browser because those are the actual addresses, not redirects.

 

With your site setup correctly, you should be able to access your "main.php" by using http://www.yourtchdomain.com/main.php and not redirect anything.

Thanks all, I was not sure if things were just not set up properly since the redirection went through. I've been having issues with another URL I had created on Sunday, and thought I was going down the same path. I have a ticket submitted for that one.
