    While contacting my web provider support:

    Hello I need a line adding to the server .htaccess redirect so my site points
    to http://www.*********.co.uk and not g**********.co.uk . Hope this can be arranged ?


    This was there dumb response

Perhaps, you can search this information using 'redirection with .htaccess ' from the search field. We appreciate yourcooperation regarding on this matter. i give fkn up

    1and1 are rubbish, I once bought a couple of domains from them, big mistake the control panel was the worst i have ever used and support was complete shit. I wouldn't take free hosting from them.

    yeah i know but im a bit stuck now, the site is taking time to get going. Once i get some sales ill move to a server of my own but i need to make some before i do that. I still carnt get to root to add the info as its read only and they said "consult a local web designer" the friggin thick support ive asked em to move it to tier 2 support think thats a larger monkey on the next desk but they wont do that and instead just beat there chests grunting,----> wankers

    I had a crappy experience with them as well in the beginning of my web design days.

    They try to come off as big shots with all their 2 page spreads in the magazine, but you're right they are shit. Even after I canceled my accounty with them they were still charging me.

    I currently have a VPS through http://www.zyonsupport.com/secure/zyon/aff.php?aff=293 and when something goes wrong they're on top of it.

    I've been through a lot of web hosts and I've been the happiest with them. However, I agree with darkAsPitch. Buy a server and they'll be all over your nuts trying to keep your business

    they don't waste any time to throw your account to collections either, they are a pain...

    if you haven't solved your 301 with the .htaccess code, I believe you can also set it up in google webmaters if your using that. but .htaccess is the way to go imo.
