    Anyone has a domain with NameCheap.com? Help

    Hi. Anyone has a domain with NameCheap.com? I need some help from you.

    I just got my domain from them few days ago and I am trying to use the URL forwarding function. It asks me to put in a URL in "@" and "www". What is the different?

    I want to use the "URL Frame" so it will hide my real URL. My other site URL is http://(myname).home.(domain).com, so should I put in the "@" field or in both?

    Well, I tried a few options, seems like it only work if I chose the "URL Redirect". If I chose frame, it said my new domain could not be found.

    Did I do anything wrong? I appreciate if you can help me.

    Thank you.

    If the users enter http://yourdomain.com/ in their browser address window, it will use the "@" hostname to redirect your URL. If they enter http://www.yourdomain.com/ in their browser, it will use "www" hostname to redirect your URL. Usually you can point them to the same URL, but you can also point them to the different URLs if you like.

    In helpdeskmart.com domain, I set up "www" hostname URL Frame to http://www.databasemart.com/ but "@" hostname URL Frame to http://www.sqlservermart.com/. You can click http://www.helpdeskmart.com/ and http://helpdeskmart.com/ to see the difference.

    It took them almost 2 days for the DNS of the domain to fully propagate. But that's ok because their customer services respond my questions very quickly. So far I don't have any problem with them yet.

    This might be slightly OT, but if you want to use their email forwarding and just want any address to be forwarded (e.g. [email protected], [email protected], etc.) you can just enter "[email protected]". Just learned this today.

    Did you mean few e-mail address forward to one personal e-mail address?

    Um, yes, (I think). That is, if you want ANY mail for a specified domain (the "few e-mail address") to be forwarded to another email address (the "one personal e-mail address") , just use the asterisk specification (for the "few" address).
