    Is it not illegal to redirect a mydomain to a popular myaffliateurl website? I see lots doing it so I assume not.

    And what about just redirecting mydomain to a website that is not my affiliate?

    If you mean using your own domain to redirect traffic through your affiliate link to the offer, like:

    traffic --> ice4me.com ---> aff. link ----> offer

    then, no, it is completely legal and is widely practiced. It is actually a form of link cloaking and is whitehat.

    Thanks bro .. so the only thing that would be illegal is to use the affiliates name as a part of my URL. I understand
