Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I just been asked if it is possible to enter a name in the url box and link it to a domain name...
eg enter 'cars' in the URL and it goes to 'www.carsdirectory.com'
Im in charge of our webserver, Its IIS4, but have never done this before, is there and way, and how...
I'm using a Mac right now so I can't verify this procedure, but look for the hosts in your Systems folder. Make a backup copy before monkeying with it. The hosts file acts a first line DNS router, that is the browser will look for the IP address here first. So, on a single line put the shortcut (space) and the IP. Just copy the localhost 127.0.0.1 layout (with the appropriate IP address of course).
For more info search for "hosts file" at your neighbourhood SE.
