Help with new website and URLs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Yo, guys.

I have set-up a website, ... but I am having issues with the URL. I purchased the domain NovumDesign.co.uk - but I am unable to link directly to that using .htacess (if that is even what I am meant to be doing).

Could anyone help me troubleshoot this? I have Googled extensively, but perhaps I am using poor search terms, and I'm not getting very far.

Basically, I'd like to be able to achieve a redirect from various conditions to allow people to go to, for example, www.novumdesign.co.uk and be taken to my main page.

Thanks!
Novum

You are uploading an Index.htm file aren't you, that's the way I always got my main site up.

My page was called "main_page". I didn't realise it was dependant on the name. I updated it to "index.htm" and it worked!

Huge thanks, Compuman, you have made my day!

Anytime fella,

Just remember that any hyperlinks on other pages will need to be changed too biggrin.gif

Oddly, after updating the file name, it worked instantly. Now, it still attempts to find a "www.novumdesign.co.ukmain_page.html" - which never existed in the first place, as it would have had the \ before "main_page". I don't know why it's attempting to direct to a nonexistent file.

Within the directory, there is an Index.htm, Style.css and folders for images and scripts.

Directly clicking http://novumdesign.co.uk/index.html will get you to the right page, however. Albeit very slowly, and with varying reliability. Ugh.

Evidently I do Graphic Design, not Web Design biggrin.gif

Works fine for me when I go to it. Might be your browser cache or something, this is going to "http://www.novumdesign.co.uk/"
