    I am trying to add a site to my Mcafee Siteadvisor account. You put in your website address and it gives you a verification code and you place a file in the root and then just verify it and you are done.

    Here is the problem, as I was trying to add a particular site this is th eerror message I got:

    Posting Web Site Owner Comments

    Error Submitting Site for Verification

    It appears that the Web site (or xxx.YourSiteName.c0m) is returning an HTTP 2xx or 3xx status response code in the header of 404 pages.
    We cannot verify a Web site that is configured this way because it allows anyone to verify themselves as the owner of your site. Please update your Web site server configuration to return 404 status codes in the headers for pages that do not exist. Once your site is configured this way then you can return and request a file name verification.

    What can I do to fix this? The hosting company said the file was there (I am able to see it) but I am not sure how to fix this so any help would be appreciated.
