Sure. It's called url rewriting.

I'm sure it is possible with GoDaddy, but they will have to do it for you. I doubt they will give you administrative access to their server software.

Hi y4kk,

Maybe one of these is what you want:

1. Change the name of the page from
www.ddlkfdlkfsl.com/jkdj.html to
www.ddlkfdlkfsl.com/index.html

Visitors would then just have to type
www.ddlkfdlkfsl.com
to get there.

2. If you really want your visitors to have to type "www.ddlkfdlkfsl.com/jkdj", then create a directory (folder) below "www.ddlkfdlkfsl.com" named "jkdj". Then you would have to move your existing "jkdj.html" file into that directory AND rename it "index.html". You may then also have to change any URLs within your page(s) to correspond to the new directory structure ("www.ddlkfdlkfsl.com/jkdj/...").

Yes this is what I intended to say, thanks for the instructions on how to do it. :thumbsup:
