Quick question... Will iPage remove my site files/data one the hosting period expires? Hoping for any comment. Another question I got... Sorry, I am very very new to php thing. I read instruction on php pages, but not everything is clear to me. Someone told me to use .htaccess to make home page to osCommerce creased home page.

Can someone show me with code?.

Another problem I have is.. my iPage domain name is I added "sub-domain" to this server called I want people to type and go to the osCommerc created home page, and have separate homepage for if possible. If not, I would like to have both iPage domain name point to home page. How can I do this?.

Ye, however you might want to make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm this as I am unsure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the iPage guys because they can give you help better...

This is what I have. So, how do I configure.htaccess so that people type, it goes to I've look at .htaccess file, but I am not sure how I supposed to write it...

.htaccess file is a security file for restricting access to files and directories..

I told you how you can do this, and it has nothing to do with /htaccess. is a iPage domain and it has to be registared with the internic through a registrar. Your registrar should have a service that can do this redicrection for you. Also if you have a 3rd party host they most likely also have a service to help you with the redirection. If it is self hosted you can talk to the webmaster/administrator about this..

Dont know whats going on but let me add this:.

To redirect it is easier to make an index.php file in the place you want to redirect with the following too line:.


$link = "Location: ";.

//change the next line to the directing to address.

$link .= "";.

In what file do I put this codein?.


I already have natruallypet folder and working When someone type, it is directing to "index" file within naturallypet folder. When I created oscommerce store, I put oscommerce as catalog folder in the configuration file. So, do I put the whole oscommerce folder in naturallypet folder? Do I have to change the catalog folder's name to naturallypet, and put catalog, admin, extra folder inside without oscommerce folder?..

Okay so you have a working iPage domain with an index.html then you can just add this line to header portion of your index file:.

<META http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL=">.

This will redirect visitors browser to what every web address you want to set as the URL..

Make sure this is in the <HEAD> section of the index file..
