Good morning/evening,

I have some .co.uk's that point to there equivilent .com's
However the poeple i bought my .co.uk domains from, forward to my .com using a frameset.
Eg, the .com is included in a frame and we are still, stricktly speaking, at my .co.uk.

This isnt good enough, and i have emailed my provider and they will not change there method.

They told me in an email i just recieved
Code: [ Select ]
To disable URL masking please add these codes to your domains index file on your other .com site.

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript"> <!-- if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href } //--> </SCRIPT>

It should then look like this:

<HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE></HEAD> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=index.php4"> <SCRIPT language="JavaScript"> <!-- if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href } //--> </SCRIPT> <BODY> <BR> </BODY> </HTML>

  2. <SCRIPT language="JavaScript"> <!-- if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href } //--> </SCRIPT>

  4. <HTML><HEAD><TITLE></TITLE></HEAD> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=index.php4"> <SCRIPT language="JavaScript"> <!-- if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href } //--> </SCRIPT> <BODY> <BR> </BODY> </HTML>


Which to validate under xhtml strict i changed to
Code: [ Select ]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

<head>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
        <title>test</title><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=index.php4" /> <script type="text/javascript">if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href }</script>
    </head>
<body>
</body>
</html>
  1. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

  3. <head>
  4.         <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
  5.         <title>test</title><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=index.php4" /> <script type="text/javascript">if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href }</script>
  6.     </head>
  7. <body>
  8. </body>
  9. </html>


Now if i have to use this method, my question is, will i get penalised by search engines to have this kind of system.

Wouldnt it be better if MYDOMAIN.co.uk actually pointed to the same ip address that MYDOMAIN.com points to ?? How would i do this?

Is this method "acceptable" or should i take my business somewere else.

Thanks for your time

Gees, that is ridiculous!

Are you having this host use domain forwarding from a cpanel thing?

What you need is access to .htaccess and put a 301 redirects in there.

If you have that access and can have them shut off their frame style
of redirecting, I suggest that you start a new thread with "301 redirect"
as the topic of your new thread. Then you'll get plenty of
help with the syntax of the 301.

Hi Bompa,

Thanks for your input. Unfortunatly, as i only bought the domains from them, they dont give me alot of control. No cPanel for example. But i did manage to change the DNS information.

So i have achieved what i was looking for.

Thanks for your input though.
