    Yes, I realize this isn't the exact category to post this issue in, but the Web Design forum has little to no activity and I need help with this as quickly as possible. My friend started an online store using HighWire through FaceBook and he purchased a domain name through GoDaddy. When we setup the domain name forwarding to go to the Facebook page, it first displays a white page with the FaceBook logo and once you click on it, it goes to the correct. I've tried helping him for hours with the issue, and I'm completely stuck. It works fine when creating a TinyURL link to the page, but even if you redirect the domain to the TinyURL link, it still does the same thing.

    If anyone knows any tricks on what to do, please let me know! (The domain is located here.)

    Thanks!

    On your GoDaddy account, are you forwarding through the Domain Manager?

    Yes, I believe so. What other method is there?

    Yes. Although I do have it setup with masking, which I will remove to test it. This is why I'm stuck, I've done everything correctly and it still doesn't work.

    Damn, I hate when you try everything, spend hours and rack your brain on something that should be simple - and still it doesnt work!
    Reminds me of when I first got DSL in 2000. What a nightmare.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: Try these instructions. It's possible that step 3 may help.

    I've tried that method as well. I really appreciate the help though!

    Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    Well, in case anyone cares, I have finally fixed it!

    It was due to the forwarding setting. Now going to www.gadgetscubed.com takes you to the site!

    Go me, go me, it's my birthday, it's my birthday. :D
