Alright i use 1&1 for my dns and domain registration. I have a domain (example.com) that has a frame redirect to: main.example.com:8080/index.htm But i want to take off the index.htm but whenever i do it says server cannot be found (i test on my neighbors wifi). Please i need this redirect, but i can't have index.htm at the end otherwise search engines cant verify it.

"URL masking" is simply a 100% frame containing the target site, and not a redirect at all. Search engines will usually index the target URL and not the frame. It is possible to have content indexed when served on a non-standard port such as 8080 but it is not recommended.

What is the exact error when you try to access main.example.com:8080/ - 403, 404 or DNS error? What web server software are you running, Apache, IIS or something else? Have you set the default directory index to index.htm?

but one problem. if it goes to main.example.com:8080/index.htm then when it tries to find the test html file (for verification) it would request main.example.com:8080/index.htm/testfile.html

As asked above, what exact error do you get when you request main.example.com:8080/ ? If the index page is not served by default by your webserver software, then you need to fix things at your end before modifying the target for your frame.
