HTML: How can I redirect from one URL to a subdirectory of another?

I think what I need is along the lines of a meta refresh-type thing. Here’s what I’ve got going on:

  1. I built a site for an event my company is hosting, which resides here: www.mycompany/eventname/index.htm

  2. I registered a domain name for the event:

How can I make visitors who type in the URL go straight to ?

I know it’s possible, but my HTML book and web searches aren’t turning up anything. Anyone know any HTML magic that will make this happen?

Try this…

<TITLE>Type the title of your page here</TITLE>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=“refresh” CONTENT=“10; url=”>

<BODY BGCOLOR="#ffffff" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#0000ff"
VLINK="#808080" alink="#ff0000" marginheight=“0” marginwidth=“0”
topmargin=“0” leftmargin=“0”>

<div align=“center”>
<h3>Just one moment please …</h3>

<p>You will be redirected in a few moments or you can <a href="">click here to



there are two ways (atleast) to do this.

the expensive way: [sub-domain pointers]

get the website hosting company of to offer you and setup a sub-domain pointer for

e.g. sub-domain pointer points to

some hosting companies do not offer this service, some offer it for a fee.

the free way :slight_smile: : [url forwarding]

i had the same issue when i setup my site… and this is how i did it…

go to and sign up. no really, that’s the website address, not an example :slight_smile:

transfer the hosting (not the registrar) of to’s service. how this is done is explained on their site.

once the domain is transferred to (about 48 hrs) , login to the control panel and setup domain forwarding. will now point to

this method is simple, efficient and free. i have used the service for over 2 years and therefore can vouch for their reliability and level of service.

so that you understand how it’s done, i shall link my site here:

my problem was i couldn’t afford hosting space… so i got some space on

and i registered the domain name

now i wanted to resolve to

i also had an additional requirement… i needed this to be done without the reader seeing in the url bar when s/he comes to my site. i needed the url bar to display

this is done by using a feature called stealth forwarding in the control panel options of

so here’s my site… you can see the end result:

(note how it’s hosted on another site’s subdirectory)

if you have any further questions, lemme know…


you also get full use of any number of

so you can setup email addresses such as, etc.
