I'm trying my best here, but I'm new to all this!
So. I have my website and a GoDaddy domain. I have forwarding setup. So:
That's fine. That part works.
Now what I want to do is have links from my new domain forward/redirect to my website.
I can't work out how to do this. It seems to me I need to have a domain for every possible link. Surely that's not the case!?!?!?
Appreciate your help in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
So on the index page you have for http://www.myGoDaddyDomain.com/myLink
Depending on what your site is coded in you need to add in code that will automatically redirect the visitor to:
You could create an index.html file in the folder directory for 'myLink' like this:
<html> <head> <title>Redirect</title> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; URL=http://www.mywebsite.com/somelink/"> <meta name="keywords" content="automatic redirection"> </head> </html>
Hope this helps.
Thank you for your reply. Perhaps I can give you more information.
We are a sporting club that has a website hosted for us by our governing organisation. We can't modify this site. The site is: http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au
We have a GoDaddy domain we purchased: http://www.tyabbcc.com
That part works fine.
Where the problem is, is we have a sponsors page (for example) with a big ugly link:
I want to be able to have www.tyabbcc.com/sponsorship forward to the above link (and so on).
Is this possible to achieve?
Thank you again for your help!
Hey again Yabbie,
Only way I see around this at the minute is setting up a 301 redirect.
To do go to your hosting account you have for tyabbcc.com and add a 301 redirect to the .htaccess file.
Redirect 301 /sponsorship http://tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au/content.aspx?file=850|46245w
The above means if anyone goes to www.tyabbcc.com/sponsorship they'll get redirected to that big ugly url.
Hope this helps
Thank you for your patience.
I can only have one 301 for my domain. I can't work out how to edit my .htaccess file - we don't host tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au, we only 'use' the website and there is no way to edit any .htaccess file on the GoDaddy portal (that I can see).
I don't know how to do the solution you offered, but your solution is exactly what I want!
Appreciate your continued help!
No problem at all.
I understand you don't have access to tyabb.vic.cricket.com.au, how ever just purchase a shared linux hosting plan, for example.. the starter or economy linux hosting with GoDaddy, as once you do this and attach your domain tyabbcc.com, you'll be able to create a .htaccess file and add your re-directs.
Hope this helps
