Re: Changing/Linking Domain Names
From Stan on 19 July '01

Don't know if this will answer your question. But there is a service called domain forwarding offered by various companies including http://www.mydomain.com ... currently free of charge

What you have to do is go to your domain name registrar (the folk you bought your dot.com etc from) and reset the name servers to NS1.MyDomain.com NS2.MyDomain.com etc. (or the name servers of your other chosen domain forwarding service

Sign up with the domain forwarder (eg MyDomain.com THAT'S THE REAL NAME)

Wait about 24 hours ... then hey presto yourdot.com will point to yourisp.com/~yourfreewebspace/index.html or whathave you

A next suggested step would be to include some Javascript into the top of your webpage something like this ...

This will force your

// <SCRIPT LANGUAGE =JAVASCRIPT TYPE="TEXT/JAVASCRIPT">
// <!--
// if(parent.frames.length <=1) {
// top.location.href="http://www.yourdot.com"
// }
// //-->

// </SCRIPT>

This will force your yourisp.com/~yourfreewebspace/index.html to be framed below www.yourdot.com

Note

// Exclude the first slashes
Change <=1 to <=2 if your webpage is framed once on your website or <=3 if framed twice

Alternatively

Find a webhost for your dot.com domain name ... upload your website files to the webhost and once you are satisfied that your site works OK at the webhosted domain

create a webpage at your old site which forwards to your new site

Something like this perhaps

// <SCRIPT LANGUAGE =JAVASCRIPT TYPE="TEXT/JAVASCRIPT">

// <!--
// top.location.href="http://www.yourdot.com"
// //-->

// </SCRIPT>
