www.multiplayer-games.com

then click on arcade or board games link which opens a new frame. The address in the browser has the hosting address, my uni, not the domain, also if u pass the mouse over the link, it has the hosting address, i want it to keep my domain, multiplayer-games.

Dapple,


     Ok, I figured it out.  Initialy it didn't make sense.  I couldn't figure out why it wasn't working.  I was going to say that obviously the "arcade" or "boardgame" page wasn't on the server that housed http://www.multiplayer-games.com.  But that was to simple.

     But it turns out, that's exactly what's happend.  multiplayer-games.com isn't ON a server....

     I had to look into what services UK2.net offers, and that's how I figured out whats going on.  You signed up for that "domain for a pound" thing, and all it offers is "web diversion" services to an existing website using the domain you want.

     In case you aren't familiar with what that is, your domain forwards to ONE page on your current site.  You don't actually have any HTML files stored on a server hosting the domain "multiplayer-games.com", they configure that domain to point to another existing address.

     But all hope is not lost!

     If you use a frameset, and have that domain point to the frameset page, your follow-on pages will be displayed inside that frameset, and will apear to be listed under the "multiplayer-game.com" domain.
