Redirect on hosted website

Hi
A simple question but I need a quick answer.
I have a windows  website on a hosting company webserver.
My domain name is www.mydomain.org.uk
For convenience my website files are in a subdirectory of the root called mydir

I need to know how I can get my domain name to access the webfiles in the subdirectory WITHOUT adding /mydir to the domain name.

In other words I do not want my users to have to type www.mydomain.org.uk/mydir to get to my website.
This can be achieved by a redirect I believe.
How could it be done?
The OS is Windows 2008
Many thanks
Charles

Hi McOz
How do I  run IIS manager on a hosted website?
Besides, the article refers to IIS 5 and my  web hosting company is running Windows Server 2008  which is presumably IIS 7

Sorry, didn't pick up that it is a hosted environment.

Since your website is hosted, the things you can do are probably fairly restricted. Often your hosting service will provide tools for you to do this yourself, but you'll need to contact them if it is not obvious.

Good luck, and sorry I couldn't give a better answer!
