Frontpage Homepage will not open

I have published in Frontpage. I hae inspected several pages and the seem to work ok.

HOWEVER the Homepage (index.htm) will not open under my domain name. It will only open as http://fp.<username>.f9.co.uk. It will not open as www.<username>.co.uk

Thoughts on a postcard?

Have you checked where on F9 they have put your domain? If you did not specify you wanted it placed on the FP server it will have been put on the homepages server. You will need to raise a ticket and ask for it to be placed on the FP server. Once actioned, it shouldn't take too long to start working.

I queried the helpdesk on Ticket 12461711 and it seems that I am not quite understanding everything.

I have activated FP extensions + 4 days

I have added the moonphase index and dummy files

I have uploaded to http://fp.shireband.f9.co.uk

I have changed the homepage from an htm to an html file

So what else to do?

:?

when I tried to find out if the fp folder was ready I used FTP to see if I could find it. Could I have massacred the space before birth?

Frontpage extensions are on an entirely different server to homepage (www) and crofters (cgi). When you asked for your domain shireband.co.uk to be hosted, did you ask them specifically to host it on the Frontpage server? It would seem that you have no index file file at homepages.force9.net which is why no page is displaying there, which would also explain why the domain is not showing a page.

I would suggest as a temporary fix that you place a framed page on the homepages server with one frame having 0 pixels. In the second frame, make the target http://fp.shireband.co.uk, this should make your homepage show under your domain until such time as you request support to change which server your domain is hosted on.

IIRC you can't host domains on the FP server - you need to use Framed forwarding - http://www.moonphase.plus.com/domain.htm

Copy the following and paste it as your index file, then upload to the homepages server.

<html>
<head>
<title>Shireband</title>
</head>

<frameset rows="0%,*" framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0">
<frame name="top">
<frame name="bottom" scrolling="auto" src="http://fp.shireband.f9.co.uk">
