    I am doing a basic redirect. I purchase a domain URL from godaddy and set the forwarding with masking to an advertisers landing page. The problem comes when people type my domain URL into their address bar this message pops up before being redirected:

    "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved."

    How do I disable this? I'm not scripting anything as i've only done a basic redirect. Thanks in advance for anyone who can answer this.

    First, stop using Godaddy. They suck and they've proven they will take your domains down for complaints without any hesitation. Try Namecheap or another registrar. Aside from that, you really should set up your own tracking. There's free systems out there (prosper202) as well as paid ones. If you set up namecheap to forward to your link you won't get that message.

    EDIT: Meta refresh will also hide the referer URL if you happen to be using a landing page.

    Still can't figure it out. I take it I need to purchase hosting to install the meta refresh tag?

    be sure the page is called index (index.html, index.php, index.aspx) and upload it to the root directory of your hosting account. this will make sure the page loads by default.

    the index page will need to be a fully formatted html page (<html>, <head>, and <body> tags). the meta refresh must be in between the <head></head> tags in order to work.

    if you search for "meta refresh tutorial" or "meta refresh example" online you'll find plenty of help
