I am in process of transfering hosting of my site from 1&1 to DH. Registration remains with 1&1 and I have changed the DNS records to forward to DH, a DNS check shows the DH nameservers.
When I try to access the site with the domain address only (www.david-ankers.com) then I get this error message:
The requested URL /defaultsite was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
The document header indicates that this page is served by 1&1.
However, if I enter the address of any of the pages directly (e.g. www.david-ankers.com/home.html ) then they come up without trouble.
What am I doing wrong?
In case it helps:
- the site was created with iWeb '08; I have only changed the FTP site and re-uploaded to DH
- in the control panel I have tried both “leave it alone” and “add WWW” options, also the web directory is correctly set
- checking with FTP client it appears that all files are present[hr]
I should add that my family site (www.ankersfamily.org), which is also registered with 1&1, hosted by DH, created with iWeb and as far as I can tell has the same settings as my own, works perfectly.[hr]
Aaaargghh, just tested http://www.david-ankers.com/home.html again and that FAILED too.
