    Strange redirection?!? Help

    I built a company website to replace our current one. This is my first site and everything was going great, until I went live with it. I put it on a domain that we no longer use for some live testing before I replaced our current website. When viewing on a desktop, there are no issues. But when anyone opens it in mobile, it redirects them to some shopping website "Ali Express" I believe. It just started doing this, prior to "Ali Express", it was opening up the app store to some medieval strategy game. I've skimmed through my html and can't find any reason why it would be redirecting like this. It only does it on the initial page, If I navigate directly to a different section with the URL it works fine until I try and go "Home" to the main page. Any ideas?

    Without seeing the site in question...no. Give us a URL, please and thank you.

    JAMET INC

    If I direct the URL to anywhere other than the main page, it works fine until I navigate to the home page
    Example: JAMET INC

    It looks as if you may have an .htaccess hack. Check to see if there's any weird code that redirects to the app page or some other page in your .htaccess code.

    If you're not sure, copy/paste it here. We can't open the .htaccess file ourselves.

    Im still fairly novice at this. I can't seem to find .htaccess. I don't know if this helps any, but I built it with dreamweaver and I'm using Network Solutions.

    It will be sitting on your Network Solutions server. It won't be a file you've created in all likelihood. It will be something they'll have installed by default.

    If you can FTP to your server, do that and see if the file is there. If it is, download it and open it in Notepad or some other text editor.

    Its not showing up anywhere in my file manager. I read somewhere else that there may be a way to display hidden files?

    It would be a hidden file for sure. I'm not sure how to get at it in Dreamweaver, though.
