Web domains and paths?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I'm having a problem. I recently just registered my first domain for my portfolio, and I set the "A record" for the domain to transfer to my site:

connorkuehl.com -> xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/my%portfolio/index.html

I set the forwarding to stealth so that it wouldn't show my IP address in the URL bar. So when you navigate to my site via. the domain name, the domain uses a frame to display the site. Also, the frame removes my <title> to the name of the domain, instead of what I set it to. In addition to this, it doesn't display the full path of the file. If you were to click on my contact me page, it would still say the name of the site:

http://www.connorkuehl.com/

Instead of saying

http://www.connorkuehl.com/contact.html
Also, if you try to name anything like this except for "http://www.connorkuehl.com/index.html", you get a 404 error.

And when you mouse over any links it shows a preview: "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/my%portfolio/faq.html"

Is there anyway to fix this?

I want it to show the full path alongside the domain name URL.

I've registered my domain name with netfirms.com, if there are any of you that use them.

Look in to setting up a DNS, instead of just forwarding.

I have two DNS addresses, what do I do with them? My IP address for my web server is static, what now?

Netfirms will have a feature to create nameservers, then rather than just forwarding the domain, all you do is point them the nameservers, and wait a few hours.

eg. ns1.yourdomain.com
ns2.yourdomain.com

edit: I've found those nameservers affiliated with my IP address, and so I input one of them. I just need one primary name server right?

What should the domain pointer be? URL or Parked?

Stealth or standard forwarding?

I only found one that worked for me. So I added it to replace ns1.netfirms.com

And now what?

Not sure then =(, sorry, might have to find a 3rd party DNS. You can always keep the IP's temporarily, then once you get a host they will give you their nameservers for you connect to, and it would fix your problem.
