"URL Frame"

 

URL Frame is similar to URL Redirect except that instead of redirecting the client to your web page, the web page is displayed in a frame from our web server. With this method the user's browser will display your domain name (for example: www.mydomain.com) while they are using your site and not the actual URL to your page (for example: iweb.com/chris33").

Note: If you use this method of forwarding, you will want to input the 'target="_top"' attribute into any links that leave the page.

You can easily change your domain to forward if you are using our DNS servers. You take the following steps:

 

  1. Login into your account
  2. Mouse over Domains
  3. Click My Domains
  4. Click on the domain name you would like to forward
  5. Click on DNS/Host Records
  6. Change the www record type to URL Redirect (Or Frame) in the address put your desired forward, i.e. HTTP://WWW.TheDomainToGoOo.com
  7. Then change the @ record to the same url as as the www record type
  8. Click Save.
