Hello

I am wondering if someon out there is familiar with Yahoo Stores. I am trying to do a 301 redirect to point mydomain.com/index.html to www.mydomain.com.

I know it can be done I have seen other yahoo stores doing this but I cannot for the life of me figure it out.

I even called tech support at yahoo and they looked at me as if I had three heads.

Can anybody help?

Anyone?

Joe - have you tried emailing support instead? Sometimes an email can get you further than a phonecall.

go into your store manager. Click on the menu that says "Domain Name Management"

You can ADD your domain HOST NAME there.

After it's been added you will see it in the pull down menu under "Yahoo! Domain Redirect Settings"

Choose the new domain from the pulldown menu and hit the "SET REDIRECT" button.

That should do it for you. You should read the help files in there in case i missed something. It's been a while since i've done it.

Make sure it's a 301 redirect and not a 302.

I wrote Yahoo support and they confirmed they do not support 301s.

I move my site to a host that supports 301s.

Definitely the best move you could've made. If you've ever had to contact customer support, you know what I mean.
