You could just put a refresh script in the head of your html on your domain's index.html page. Set it to auto-forward to your .Mac. However, I would do just the opposite. The .Mac pages are too "flakey." Service goes down sometimes without notice, you have a very strict bandwidth limit, etc...<br><br>If you are trying to dump your web host and just have a domain name that points to your .Mac page, you can do that with the registrar of the domain. I have Network Solutions, and I know I can have the domain name point to anywhere I want it to.<br><br><br>Click here to visit me.

Thanks but the registrar is vario and they don't provide url forwarding.<br><br>

Lo-tech and cheesy, but I guess you could just throw up a link that says, "www.irazlssite.com has moved here", with a link.<br><br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a </font color=red> <br>

This is what aI found, but, it sounds just like what Giz said to do.<br><br>The first part is easy. Copy this simple two lines of code. Make a page and name it 'index.html' and paste. Any text editor can do this. <br> <HTML><HEAD><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url= http://homepage.mac.com/username/foldername/startpage.html"></HEAD><BODY></BODY></HTML> <br> Place this new index page in the proper folder in your domain site if you want people to be directed to your .Mac site. To go the other way, .Mac site to domain, place this index page into your 'Sites' folder on your iDisk. <br> <br> Change 'username' to your .Mac account name. 'foldername' would be used only if you have any sub folders in your iDisk 'Sites' folder that you want to direct the viewer to see. 'startpage.html' would be left out unless you have your start page in a sub folder, and it is not named index.html. <br> <br><br><br><br>[color:red]Listen...</font color=red>
