    I have created a website in .mac. I still want to host it with my .mac account but I want a simpler address.

    I have regestered www.jmgr.com but have yet to get the site redirecting to my .mac account.

    I have used the following html:

    Code:
    <head>
    .
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; URL=http://web.mac.com/johnathan.macleod">
    .
    </head>
    However this dosent seem to be redirecting, it just sits on the webpage.

    If anyone has any sugeestions or can post an index.html file that I can just upload it would be wildley appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Johnny

    I use:

    Code:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="4; URL=http://www.yourdomianhere.com">
    The only difference I can see are the capitals. Maybe try that? :confused:


    Maybe try posting your site here so others can try it for themselves and take a look at the entire source.

    Thanks but it is still not working. As you can see here: (jmgr.co.uk)

    All I get is the index file in plane text. I edited this in textedit and posted it using Cpt FTP, it is a index.html file.

    I am trying to direct to: .Mac JMGR

    I dont know what else to do so if anyone else could help i would be appreciated,

    Johnny

    OK, you're problem is you are placing the redirect tag in the body, and not the head of the html. I'll try making an index for you...

    It should be up in a few minutes. :)

    Here it is. It should automatically redirect your visitors immediately (0 seconds). If for some reason their browser does not, it reads:
    If you are not automatically redirected please click: http://web.mac.com/johnathan.macleod

    You are welcome. :)

    Also, if you need any changes made to that file (e.g. Title, redirect time, message, etc.) I would be more than happy to help you.

    Normally the domain host allows you to setup forwarding so everything happens on the DNS server. It is more quick this way and you don't have to worry about browsers redirecting improperly.

    yeah, I agree. I'm currently doing that with my site (though pretty soon it'll redirect to a portfolio quality site, then http://mac.jonshipman.com/ will redirect to my .Mac page for the family).
