Re: dot com forwarding

I thought there were two ways to accomplish this. First is the way described in the previous response. I believe this is called a "redirected URL".

One problem with a redirected URL is that search engines will not list the "original" domain name. That may not be a problem unless you decide to move to a new hosting service someday. At that point, all the search engine links to the "redirrected URL" will be broken.

The other way is to use the META tags (in the HEAD section). It looks like this:

META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0" URL="http://www.teamstarlight.com/downsizin"

The zero under CONTENT is a time. What this command does is to wait zero seconds (or whatever time you specify) and then load the document specified in the URL.
