Domain redirect?


Hey guys,

I have a forum installed directly into the root of my domain, so when going to it automatically shows you the forum… well now I want to have as the front page, but when I got into the domain settings, im told I can’t redirect a domain to itself!

Any advice?!


You can’t redirect a domain to itself, as it says, because that would result in an infinite redirect. You can, with a .htaccess file, cause a redirect of specified addresses (like just an access to the domain with no path) to a particular address within the domain.

You might have been better off, structurally, if you had set up the forum and blog in separate subdomains, like and; that would be more flexible.
