    I have a website, but nothing created for it yet, I don't know what I would put there anyhow but I do have a forum I just set up. How do I set it so that if someone clicks on www.mysite.com it takes them directly to www.mysite.com/forums ???

    I tried the domain forwarding through godaddy (thats my host) but it didn't forward me... :wtc:

    If you want it to redirect immediately without showing your index page you could add the line
    Code:
    Redirect http://www.yourwebsite.com/ http://www.yourwebsite.com/forums
    
    To your htaccess file
