Thanks , I was able to log in . But I can not see where the old URL is to change .
A registrar+nameserver (both provided by cheaperdomains in your case) is about providing information about which machine is serving up your website. Think of this as being like the whitepages - your web-browser says "where do I find www.sheppartonmarathon.com.au" and the servers reply "over at 184.108.40.206". This number is kindof like a phone number for computers on the internet.
Notice that it only responds with a "phone number", not information about a full URL.
If you want to redirect users to the URL you posted, you'll need to configure the website at that "phone number" to have some HTML like a previous poster provided. That means that when your webbrowser dials that number, and says "give me http://www.shepparto...arathon.com.au"
, the web-server will say "actually, you should go to http://regonline.act...hon2011_970930"
So... the quickest way is to upload something to your CURRENT website, with html like the previous poster included. You wouldn't want to change the DNS for now.
PS: doing it this way is a bit inefficient, and you might be paying for web-hosting that you're not using, but will be the quickest way to get going now. I can provide (much) more technical explanations if required.
