    And sending me personal messages saying its "personal" is not an explanation.

    There may be legitamite reasons for doing this, and if so, it might help someone else on the forum.

    But if its personal, I suspect its not above board, and as relayed in the PM

    If you can't provide details, then I wont even tell you if it can be done

    I will tell you this... There's no way to do it 100% undetectable ... Someone one somewhere can access log files and see what's going on.

    If you have a legitimate and legal reason for doing this, then log file entries are not an issue.

    What WZ said. Before you do this, you'll need to state your reason publicly, and there isn't a way that's 100% undetectable. Frame forwarding would be about as close as it gets, and even then, it's not going to work for the reasons he stated.

    Why do you not want to reveal why you want to do this? Is it a business reason?

    The reason we're asking is (partially) because we have lots of people ask questions that they think will get them the results they want when in reality it won't. Knowing the end goal can help us so that we can recommend the correct path.

    First of all, WZ is one of the more respected and intelligent members on here, so please adjust your tone accordingly. He may be an "unknown forum member" to you, but he's not to the rest of us, and we've been around a whole lot longer than you have. it's you who is the "unknown forum member", not him.

    Second and more importantly, WZ is right. You've asked a question that sounds extremely suspicious. Why would you want a domain to forward to another domain without the knowledge of the webmaster of the destination domain? I don't know of a legitimate reason to do this myself, but I do know of illegitimate reasons.

    1) Negative SEO. A porn domain, for example, that 301s to a legitimate domain for the purposes of getting a competitor penalized.

    2) Irrelevant traffic/bandwidth redirection. Sending traffic that the new site owner can't use, which increases his/her bandwidth consumption for nothing.

    You're also cross-posting this question, which makes it even more suspicious:

    http://www.webdevforums.com/showthre...in-redirection

    To put it bluntly, you're behind the 8-ball. You have two choices at this point: either tell us exactly what you're trying to do and what you're hoping to accomplish without excuses, copouts, bullying or insults, or I'm going to delete this thread.

    I adjust my tone according to who I speak and how s/he speaks to me. If you do not respect me I will not either .You get the same reply!. And yes s/he is just a member of a internet forum as everyone in every other internet forums talking about several stuff. Therefore unknown to me same as you are to me and I am to you. We do not know each other personally . I know about web forums .Either you meet people running a business either ou meet people sharing a common interest in something (worse for those with thousands of post who in reality don''t have a real life). Anyway whatever makes happy people .

    As I said I do not feel i need to gain some kind of reputation or request for an approval on an internet public forum. Neither am I so stupid to compromise the release of information that could compromise the revelation of my identity .We are on the internet remember! If you think carefully you will see I am right.I can post whatever I want .Members are not forced to reply and can just ignore it.
    Anyhow I guess you just create fuss without even knowing the answer to the question..

    No... But if you ask a question, and we ask a question as to why you are asking it... Then you should at least say... Something.

    The point is, there is no legitimate reason for your request, therefore "we" who know the answer, don't feel compelled to give you the answer you see as you seem us not worthy of an answer.

    And you miss the point of a forum completely.... It's not for just getting "your" questions answered... If that were the case... There would be no one answering.

    This... As many other forums are communities where we share advice, information, encourage discussion, discourage illegal activity, etc... Part of that takes someone to contribute.

    So... Start contributing and you might actually see what a forum is all about

    Fatal flaw in your argument: you're unknown to us as well, whereas we are known to one another. The "we do not know each other personally" doesn't apply here, as someone like WZ is known on here for helping others with legitimate concerns, spotting those who don't, and providing intelligent, reasonable replies. If you don't believe me, review his past posts and see for yourself.

    You also came on here looking for help from us, not the other way around. That means you're in our community and we reserve the right to operate it as we wish, which means if we suspect illegal and/or immoral activity, you're going to get called to the carpet on it. So far, you haven't done a thing to help anyone or suggest that what you're doing is legitimate when there are strong reasons that suggest otherwise. The negative SEO reason alone is enough for us to be suspicious.

    Then don't. No one asked you to. You can still tell us why you want to do what you want to do without revealing domain names, your name, or anything else you don't want to.

    You can't post whatever you want, either. Sorry...that's just plain wrong. Here are the rules, just in case you missed them. "AND I QUOTE":

    All posts must be free of illegal or distasteful content, which includes pornography and nudity, bigotry, posting of copyrighted material, spamming the forum, excessive bumping of threads or flaming/trolling.
    The possibility exists that what you're suggesting is in fact illegal (excessive bandwidth consumption as a result of traffic redirection can negatively impact the performance of a site and therefore could fall under any number of statutes). Again, if it's not, tell us what your goal is. We're under no obligation to help you until we do.

    Whether you feel that you don't need to "gain some reputation or request for an approval on an internet public forum" is irrelevant. You're a nobody here right now. You've proven nothing. You've established nothing. Therefore, your opinions mean, as of right now, nothing.

    WZ has established himself, he's somebody, he's proven himself, and he's earned respect...you haven't. He knows how to redirect users to another page, and I do as well...but we're under absolutely no obligation to tell you anything. Neither one of us has even asked you to be a productive member around here and help someone else...we've only asked you to explain what it is you're trying to accomplish and why.

    At this point, everything that needs to have been said has been said. So either you tell us in a respectful manner without the ego trips or the "I have the right to say what I want" or the holier-than-thou attitude, or you will be banned since you're clearly up to something.

    Ball's in your court. Choose your words very, very wisely.
