I've recently completed a website, but I'm having some issues with domain name redirection.

I am trying to get my domain name to show directories. For example, http://www.example.com/forum. When typing in http://www.example.com, it should redirect to the forum directory immediatly and not put my website in a frame.

http://example.com does seem to do the trick and keeps the domain name + directories in place.

Currently http://www.example.com redirects to my server ip. When choosing "Keep domain name in address bar", my website is framed and the ip is still visible when clicking links.

-My domain name is registered over at http://www.names.co.uk.
-My pop mail server is registered over at http://www.names.co.uk as well.
-It allows dns administration (cname, aname etc).
-It allows changing nameservers.
-My dedicated server has been bought somewhere else.

What exactly do i need to change in order to have my www domain name + directories?

I've tried contacting support about this, but they don't seem to be that helpfull.

Thanks in advance for answering.

I have the same problem with my host. The only way I can get the domain to stay in the address bar is if I use frames, however the subfolders and file names are always hidden.

Just curious, who is your host?

Is this a *nix based or Windows host?

You are probably using a URL forwarding service. This means that the DNS entry for that domain name points to your provider http://www.names.co.uk, who in turn redirects the client to your site http://www.example.com.

In order to fix this, you must register the domain name (http://www.example.com) directly to your nameservers.
