Vanity Domain Name Service

SETUP FAQS

How do I upload my files?

A: Using an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) Program, such as CuteFTP for Windows or Fetch for Macintosh.

Where do I upload my files?

A: In order for files to be viewable from your domain name, you MUST upload all of your files into your 'public_html' directory inside your account. Files located outside this folder will not be accessible when accessing your domain name.

How do I redirect people to my new site (from www.inch.com/~username to www.yourdomain.com)?

A: If you put this code:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="2; URL=http://www.insert your vanity domain name here.com">

into an index.html file in your account's main directory (NOT the public_html directory), when people go to your old URL (www.inch.com/~username) they will be automatically redirected to your new Vanity Domain (www.yourdomain.com). Also, the command CONTENT="2; refers to the time in seconds to wait before the refresh. You can change it to however many seconds you want.

What if I want to add additional vanity domains?

A: Only one vanity domain is permitted per Internet Channel Dial-Up or ADSL account. To create another domain, you would need to purchase another account, or our low-cost Basic Web Service.
