Re: WEB ADDRESS

No. The changes to be made are on the servers and not your computer and most web admins have a god complex with their servers. They could do it but then they would argue if we do it just for you then we have to do it for everyone mentality. So when asking just ask if this could be a "feature" or something they they could implement.


Good luck! :-)

>>The ability to change this is in the server itself and takes a few moments to change it and to see one that does this shows the admins real MCSE skill set. So if you see a web host who isn't able to resolve mycompany.com to www.mycompany.com then I'll show you a company you should not do business with.
