Ok I am looking for a plan to get domain forwarding. I checked out http://www.mydiscountdomains.com/ and they only charge $8.88 a year. But I have one question about this. I was wondering if with domain forwarding I could point it to http://www.all4actions.com/~jarlan/ instead of straight to the index file. I would like to be able to type in http://www.my-url-.com/viewtopic.php?t=42 and beable to goto http://www.all4actions.com/~jarlan/viewtopic.php?t=42. Is that what domain forwarding can do? Also I get domain locking for free and it sounds like to me that I would not be able to do this.

domain forwarding means you type in a domain, and it redirects automatically to another. I don't believe you can send it to a specific page.

i use http://www.godaddy.com for all my domain needs, and I have never had a problem. I don't know anything about the one you listed.

For most forwarding services yes, you can do that. Just remember that if it's capable of it, to put the slash at the end of the forwardee (if that's a word). Ex. your-url.com should point to "http://www.blah.com/yourfolder/"

Ok it is fully working but one more question of my millions. I have it forwarded to http://www.all4actions.com/~jarlan but when I goto my domain it goes to http://www.all4actions.com/~jarlan/index.php of course cause thats the index page. but when I type in my domain http://www.legacy-rpg.com/portal.php to goto my portal page, it goes to "This page cannot be displayed."

Specs:

$5.00 - $9.95 a month
php supported
200mb - unlimited space
1gb - unlimited transfer
FTP access
free tech support
no e-mail option
no domain registration option

I dont need much but i will still have my other hosted accout since I got it for being mod at the site so i can host files on that account.

first thing is, you really didn't search because hosting bids are ALL OVER this forum. Searching
the term "hosting" proved 549 results.

Since you want the easy answer, PM me for more
info, I can help you out.

cheap prices usually means cheap service. as with
anything in this world, you get what you pay for.

Spend a couple extra bucks a month, and get the
utmost in quality.

bluedragon, you can do whatever you like and it's no offense to me whatsoever. I think
it's a bit unprofessional of him to step in and snake a potential client away, that's all.

If you decide you want to go with our services, simply let me know. No worries mate. :)

simply state that info, so people would know you had been talking with him already.
Now that I know this info, it doesn't matter much, except you should be more careful
on how you seek clients around here. Had I known that, I never would have mentioned
my own services. So after all, the appearance is that you snaked a client.
