You have to have access to index.html, or at least the directory that it is in, in order to do this.
Then use .htaccess (requires access to the directory that index.html is in) or php (requires access to index.html) redirect to accomplish whatever it is you are trying to do.
For .htaccess you'd create a file called .htaccess in this directory and put this inside it:
Redirect 301 / http://www.new-site.com/
This would redirect anything that comes to the Where-To-Ride.org to
Or use a php redirect by putting this at the top of index.php
header("Location: http://www.example.com/"); /* Redirect browser */
But you're query is still quite confusing and I'm not convinced you are actually asking the right questions to get the answer that you are looking for.
If this post didn't help, don't try and minimize words, or give examples, tell us exactly what the situation is and what end-result you are trying to achieve. This forum is full of people who don't need things 'dumbed' down or paraphrased.
Sorry, I'll give you the whole story and let you decide what I should do!
I belong to the Washington Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance (www.WOHVA.org). It is a non-profit organization so they are trying to keep costs to a minimum.
I volunteered to create a "one stop" website wherein anyone wanting to ride their OHV (4x4, ATV, or dirt bike) could come to this web site and find locations anywhere in the state of WA.
The project is far enough along that it is ready to be made available to the public.
I have proposed to the WOHVA Board of Directors to purchase a domain name (WOHVA-Catalog.org) and pay someone to host the web pages.
I think it should be set up so when someone types in the URL www.WOHVA-Catalog.org they would be taken directly to the main page, which is a Google Maps-based web page with all the sites displayed on the map. There would be some additional pages associated with this project, but it mainly would be links to already existing web sites for more information about the OHV areas/roads/trails.
You can see the project here (if this will help): http://www.dog-walker.us/WOHVA/Catalog-map/catalog-map.htm
One of the WOHVA member clubs has offered to host this project on their server because they have unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth. The WOHVA President wants me to explore their offer to see if it will save us money.
While I'm sure it will save us money, I'm not sure the resultant URL will be easy to remember. Seems like I read somewhere that if you do this, the URL could end up being something like http://WOHVA-Catalog.ewatv.org or possibly http://www.WOHVA-Catalog/ewatv.org/ - not very easy to remember.
I understand the basics of the .htaccess file (I have one on my personal web site), but not sure how to use it in this situation.
I firmly believe the URL for this project should be simple and easy to remember; that's why I picked WOHVA-Catalog.org; easy to remember; you don't have to go to a search engine to find it!
I personally own a domain and have it hosted on a web server so I understand the basics, but this is above my expertise level!
I hope this is a better explanation of what I'm trying to accomplish. Problem is, as you mentioned, I'm not sure I'm even asking the correct questions!
