the domain i want is available but when i just type in the domain into my browser (I use firefox) without doing a ctrl-enter or typing in the www or .com it redirects me to another place.
Anyone know what the deal is with this?
someone bought the domain and redirected it.
You would have to buy the domain from the person that currenlty owns it
Perhaps you have entered "masking" into the place you bought it if you did not buy it then go and buy it from www.besthostinginusa.com and they will tell you if this was bought if available etc and feel free to buy it from them they are the lowest priced and most secure. I am trying them for years now!
