    OK, SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO REDIRECT MY .MAC WEBSITE I DESIGNED TO MY YAHOO WEBSITE. I DON'T KNOW THE TECHNICAL TERMS, BUT I FIGURED IT WOULD BE EASY ENOUGH FOR ME TO FORWARD MY YAHOO DOMAIN TO MY .MAC WEBSITE. HOWEVER, YAHOO SAID B/C THEY HOST IT THAT I WOULD HAVE TO MAKE MY .MAC FORWARD TO THE YAHOO. (IT IS BEING HOSTED ON YAHOO, BUT I DIDN'T DESIGN THE SITE B/C IT WAS TOO HARD THROUGH YAHOO BUT WHEN I GOT A MAC IT WAS CAKE) WHAT TO DO?????

    What you will need to do is:

    1. Login to your .Mac account, and click on Account on the top of the left sidebar.
    2. Once you are on the account settings page, click on "Add Domain..."
    3. Enter your domain name that is hosted at Yahoo
    4. Add a CNAME record that points www.yourdomain.com to web.mac.com (call Yahoo if you are unsure of how to do this, but it should be inside of some kind of advanced DNS manager in your control panel)
    5. Create a META redirect index.html file on your Yahoo server so your domain name will work with the www as well.

    On your Yahoo server, create index.html or modify your existing index.html, and add this code between the <head> tags of your document, replacing yourdomain.com with your domain name:

    <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=http://www.yourdomain.com">

    Do exactly this.

    On your Yahoo server, create index.html or modify your existing index.html, and add this code between the <head> tags of your document, replacing yourdomain.com with your domain name:

    <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=http://www.yourdomain.com">
