    I've had a couple of domain names for a while now. Never ever had hosting. I just do URL Frame/Forwarding. That's all I really know how to do..

    I have a new idea that I want to try and it's just URL page forwarding but in order to forward a page with my domain name I needed hosting so someone recommended 2freehosting.com to me


    I have signed up and everything but have no idea what so ever what to do next. Someone told me I needed to make a folder in my cpanel and put an index file into it to create the page but I can't seem to figure out how to do this

    When I go to cpanel it asks me to install it but then when I hit install it, I have to mess with nameservers and it just seems like one big headache.

    Can anyone explain how to do this please?

    A quick google would solve your problem. But if you should get hosting go at hostgator which is not expensive at all and set up a hosting. Free hosting usually sucks compared to hosting u pay 8$ a month for..

    I've been Googling but can't seem to find any good info so I figured I'd ask here =/

    And I'm just trying the free hosting to see how to use everything. Like I said, I won't be using any ''disk space'' or anything on the hosting. Just using it for redirects so it should use little to no bandwidth.

    You need the nameservers of your hosting company and put those into the settings of your domain.

    I remember the first time I had to do this..lol, it looked so difficult but it was actually pretty easy.

    Thanks. I finally figured that part out lol but now I'm having a problem with the goal that I am trying to achieve. Someone on an older thread told me what to do but I can't get it to work. I'll paste the steps below:

    I did that step by step but it just takes me to an all white parent directory/index looking page...

    If you sign up with our hosting services then we can personally help you out with the entire setup. We've a sales thread on BlackHatWorld, but if you still wanna continue with your existing host then do the following:

    1) Grab the Nameservers and update that with your Domain Registrar. If you don't know your nameservers then open up a ticket with your hosting company and ask them for the details.
    2) Wait for the Propagation to complete (It could take upto 24 hours).
    3) Login to your FTP (Your default cPanel Details and FTP details should be the same).
    4) Locate public_html or www folder (This option varies on per hosting basis).
    5) Upload all your files and your index.html file will be loaded.

    I believe webhosting control panel is best for noob. You don't have to do anything with commands, also there are many free control panel available that you can try.
