Cool

Just a general though... I would stay away from any claim from any company for anything "lifetime." The web is going to look very very different in 10 years, and *most* (not many, but most) internet-based companies won't be around in 5 years, let alone ten.

Just something to keep in mind...

Question

what do you mean by url redirect, I offer a free url redirection system where by uses can turn their long url into something shorter. Is that what your looking for, if so there are 100's of these that offer free services.

You could just sign up with a free hosting service, virtualave.net/hypermart/webprovider... and then stick in a meta refresh code at the top of a page...
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.geocities...">

I don't see why you wanna redirect a domain name to geocities.. If you are willing to pay for domain registration, why not pay for the hosting fee too?

oh ... well, i have a good domain name in my mind and its still available ... but i just want to redirect it to my geocities account bcos i dont 1 2 pay for the monthly hosting cost(couldn't manage to cover the cost too bad http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif), and my site is a mp3 site, so maybe i will have problems with hosting companies and i am a geoplus member, which means i have 50MB and unlimited bandwidth http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

anyway ... the .AT domian name will cost me AD 1,200+ ... and hopefully my site's revenue can manage to cover the redirection cost after the domain fees http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

so, any knows about good redirection services???
