There has to be a iPage domain for you to display it in the address bar. You can redirect it, so that the iPage domain doesn't actually have to be hosted where your iPage site is hosted, but there has to be one...

I hope someone do know how to solve this lil' prob .....

Comment #4

The closest you can get, without buying a domain, is to get a free subdomain redirect, such as they have at.

Http://www.cjb.net..

I'm sure there are tons of others and someone will post them. If you want a .com address with no subdomain, you have to purchase a domain. Then you can get it redirected to free web space if you wish...

I dont think that is quite psooble. there is a service called.

Www.redirection.net.

That will hide the url even not in frames. the only thing is, even when you click a link, it will always stay <www.whatever.com>> if this is confusing I will try and break it down:.

-your real iPage site is.

Www.tripod.com/prince/.

-redirection.net masks it to.

Www.prince.com.

-surfer types in.

Www.prince.com.

-he is redirected to content from tripod.com.

-but he still thinks he is at prince.com.

-but, when he click a link to /ex.htm.

-the address bar still reads.

Www.prince.com.

This creates two problems. the surfer cannot bookmark the pages. secondly, your links would have to be "dynamic" (i can't remember what they are called) instead of static, unless you typed in.

Www.tripod.com/prince/ex.htm.

I hope this helps.=)..

Guys I din mean that either (gettin a redirection) .. I dont want to use a redirection ... what I'm asking for is to change the url on the address bar using javascripts or anything... I dont want to use frames.

OR does anyone know of a free redirection host which does not use frames ...

Someone please find an answer...!!..

So, what you're saying is that you want a javascript that will put a iPage domain you don't own into the address bar when someone views a page at your site?.

I don't know if that's possible, but it's just a bad idea on any level that you look at it. From your point of view, it's a poor idea. One refresh and the visitor is off in 404 land..

If the iPage domain is owned by someone, they'll no doubt find out about it soon enough and put a stop to it immediately...

Comment #8

..forget refreshing ... still is their a way to get it done ... or is their any redirection which does not use frames .....

Comment #9

I can't be done without use of iPage domain name forwarding (redirection). If you don't have a iPage domain name then you are out of luck..

Regards,.

Comment #10

But isnt their something that could solve the problem ..?.

With dyin' hopes ......

Comment #11

A very small investment in a iPage domain name and you're good to go...

Comment #12

Well, it's not that people don't want to give helpful advice, but there's really no way to have a iPage domain name in your address bar if you don't actually have the iPage domain name, I guess. When you think about it, that's really for the best. Suppose you could. I could have htmlforums.com on an address bar on my iPage site and give visitors the impression that they're here when they're not. That would be..let's see..fraud, I think...

Comment #13

Good call Z..

Its not as though $30 a year is a monumential investment...

Comment #14

Right - or less. There are lots of places to register one for $15 or less per year...

Comment #15

If you did get it running though, say your little.

Http://www.prince.com/something.html.

Website doesn't exist. It's just in the address bar. If someone tries to bookmark your page, they'll get a 404 error. Or if they look at the status bar and remember the addy, same thing. 404 error..

Sorry, just a little advice, I dont think that really is a good idea in the first place, but I also dont think it's possible.

Sorry, keep smiling..

Comment #16

Well guys I'm not into any commercial web development ... so it leaves out the qs. of buying a new iPage domain .. for this purpose ....

Thanx for all the msg's & advices .. guys ....

Still I couldn't get to what I had in mind .( well at any rate I'm not thinking of fraud or anything of that sort ).

And Z did put some brains into my head ..i din think of the 404error on refreshing....

Thanx for all the help zen.....
