    Hi there,

    I figured out how to URL-forward a domain name using Win2K. That's no problem.

    What I'd like to know how to do is this:

    http://www.kaylasoden.com/

    This is actually a frame-forwarded site whereby the site is hosted somewhere else.

    Now I know one of my guys can create the page manually (or even go one step further and have he frame-forwarded information inputted into a field, have a folder created for that particular domain, and have the index page and blank bottom frame uploaded to it.)

    I could also have it send info to me via email as far as the form input and then set up the rest of the site through IIS manually. What I'd like to be able to do, if at all possible, is be able ot fill in a form of some kind on a web browser that would allow for a site with all the appropriate host header info to be created.

    I would think ASP would work the best, since it's a Microsoft technology, but I'm really not sure on this. I'm not even sure if I'm missing something in terms of setting the site up in IIS that will allow for frame forwarding.

    So any help anyone could give me would be appreciated.

    I'm still a bit lost on what exactly you want to do?

    I understand the whole frame-forward idea, but what is your ultimate goal?

    I've seen this used a lot when you're doing subdomains (like .cjb.net), is that similar to what you're trying to do?

    Here's what I invision you're asking (although I think I'm wrong)
    1. Have someone fill out a form on your site
    2. Have that form create a directory on your server, fill it with an index.html that is in essence a frame forwarder that allows them to use your subdomain, but host the site elsewhere.

    Am I wrong here? If not it would be pretty easy to do.

    That's part of the goal, yes. The other part would be to have IIS create the site itself (since it has to be created and pointed there) without me having to go in and do it manually. That's the part I'm stuck on. I know how to do it manually, but anything that would make the process easier is what I'm trying to accomplish.

    Can't you create a VBScript and use the Server.Execute (something like that I remember) to run it?

    That's the problem. I've never seen any kind of VBScript file that interacted with IIS to do anything. I just want to see a sample of something someone's done, or the syntax for it. I can figure out the rest from there.

    Hmm, unfortunately I can't help you there beyond telling you I know it's possible.

    Here's a start, which I found by searching [searchweb].vbs IIS[/searchweb]
