    Hi all..

    Can some one explain something to me pls.......

    I want to buy a domain name i.e www.ihatework.com and then i want to use the free webspace given to me by my ISP (50mb) to host files/site. Does anyone know how to do this? I think its called domain forwarding (not to sure).

    This may be a pretty simple procedure but as i have never done it before i wouldn't know.

    | thankyou for reading |

    If your registrar provides domain forwarding, it's usually in a web based control panel. All you need to do is enter the URL you want visitors to be forwarded to. I know GoDaddy offers this service, what registrar did you buy your domain from?

    Also, if your registrar doesn't offer this service, you can transfer your domain to GoDaddy. For about $8, they will extend the registration on your domain for a year, and you'll be able to use their services (almost) immediately. Check out www.godaddy.com if you're interested.

    GoDaddy includes the service for free IIRC. Even if they don't it should a very cheap addition. It could be called Domain Redirection, too.

    All it will do is redirect all requests from your domain to the space your host gives you. People won't see the domain when surfing your site so it might look amateur, though.

    Alternatively, you could set up hosting for about $3 a month (for bottom of the line) and set up DNS so that people will actually be surfing your site
