I've just checked the 3 domains on your account and all are directing correctly as far as I can tell. None of them sent me to the Plusnet website and they all direct to the relevant folders as they should.
Have you made any DNS changes locally or updated your hosts file at all?

Not that i am aware of. Am getting this message when trying to connect via Firefox  www.godnose.co.uk uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.plus.net, plus.net (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

Re: My hosted websites are redirecting to plusnet

Have just tried connecting via link in my previous post and it works
Does this mean problem is at my end ? If so any ideas.
Ps.  the dognose website is working from my end, the others go to plusnet

Re: My hosted websites are redirecting to plusnet

Bingo!  Thanks Chris +Dom etc
I had loaded google which comes up as an https address and replaced the www etc with my address - hence the problem
As a matter of interest why does Google use https (not all websites do) and what is the difference to a http ?
I'd be interested to know

thanks again

Re: My hosted websites are redirecting to plusnet

HTTPS supports secure (encrypted) connections; HTTP does not - all transmissions are in plain text. The Plusnet Webspace FAQ provides information on using HTTPS (SSL) to connect to your website using a secure connection. As you will see the format of URLs is different and domain addresses are not supported.
A separate SSL Security Guide expands on using SSL.
