    Hello. I was told by my hosting company that they cannot redirect multiple URLS to subfolders on my shared server. But that the same effect could be achieved by using a redirect script in the header of my index page. Of course, they couldn't give me an example of that.

    Does anyone know what the code is or know of a index.htm that I can view the source on to see it?

    Thanks in advance,

    A meta tag in between the <head> and </head> tags would work:

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=http://yoursite.com/subfolder/index.html">

    The number 0 is how many seconds it waits before refreshing; this would refresh instantly, or you could set it to 1, 2, etc. seconds.

    The other method is JavaScript. Change the <body> tag to:

    <body onLoad="redirect();">

    Then, put the following in the head section:

    <script language="JavaScript">
    function redirect()
    window.location.href = "http://yoursite.com/subfolder/index.html";

    Either method would work.
