    That's right, the service offered with a second level domain is an HTTP redirect. However, the domain is yours and if you buy the second or third option you can also manage the DNS records. You cant directly point the DNS records to an AlterVista webspace, it is only directly reachable through the AlterVista domain.

    Hi Altervista,
    I too am in a simular position as karl 94. I had assumed that my account example.altervista.org would change to whatever domain i had bought.

    My account name is radiographershideout.altervista.org but have purchased simulationradiography.com and I paid the 4.55 euro+tax package.

    I would like that whenever someone goes to simulationradiography.com that they do not actually see any mention of the radiographershideout.altervista.org account. For example; I have developed radiographershideout.altervista.org/page1 and radiographershideout.altervista.org/page2

    I would like it to display as simulationradiography.com/page1 ... simulationradiography.com/page2 ... etc.

    Is this possible? If so, how do I go about it?

    In addition, is it possible to change my account name to simulationradiography?

    In the future, is it possible that could I transfer simulationradiography.com to another webhosting provider.


    Kind Regards
    Chris

    You can't delete the AlterVista domain, since it is the only directly connected to the webspace.

    It is possible by using some JavaScript, there is a guide on our Italian forum.

    No, it isn't possible.

    You can transfer the domain at any moment.
