The Shepparton Runners Club own the URL www.sheppartonmarathon.com.au . We brought it off cheeper domains. Last year it wes pointed to our 2010 on line rego page through the Active Network . I have created a new online rego page for 2011.

I need www.sheppartonmarathon.com.au to point to http://regonline.act...thon2011_970930

I emailed this question to Cheeper Domains a few adays ago but I have not received a reply at this stage . Can anyone help me please .  :im Not Worthy:

Oh dear. I remember the original thread, and remember thinking "this will end up badly".

Only your registrar can re-direct your domain name. Only your registrar.

If Dirt Cheap Domains won't do it, phone them, go see them, fax them, email them until they do. They're in Hawthorn.

Then transfer to a decent registrar. When's your current domain registration expire?

Edited to add: A decent registrar provides you with a control panel where you can adjust such settings ("DNS settings") yourself.

Just looked. They do have a client control area of some kind. They say "All domain names include Free DNS hosting, Free expiry notifications, Free management console and NO hidden fees."

Have you accessed your control panel, and can you not setup a DNS re-direct from there?

Yer I know . That would require me remembering the password that I used once 2 years ago .
I did not even get windows to remember it . I have to wait for a reply .

In that case I completely do not see the point of your first post. What on earth do you expect anyone else here to do?

I've wasted my time here.

Over and out.

I am sorry but I used up my limited knowledge and was hoping for advise from someone with more knowledge. I thought someone may know of some other method as I Wait for a email response from cheaper domains.

You don't need to update your name servers or redelegate the domain name etc.

What you need to do is update the html that is stored on cheaperdomains web servers.

The code below is what is currently stored on the server in a file called index.html . You will need to change the url below in the SRC property to the new one and then upload to the server.

Try resetting you password through this page
https://www.cheaperd....au/pwreset.php

Let me know if you need any help... otherwise you could probably request that their support make this change for you... but you need your login details to do that.

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 210.9.33.82".  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.

Cheers, Simon

It should go something like this:

Click on 'My Products & Services' link

Click on the 'View Details' button

Click on the 'Login to Plesk' button

Once you are logged into Plesk you should be able to use the File Manager to edit the contents of the index.html file

Click on the file manager icon.

Select your domain

Click on httpdocs

Inside the httpdocs folder should be index.html

Next to the index.html file should be a pen icon under the tools column. Click that to edit your file.

Once you have made the change to the SRC element click save and you should be good to go.
