I just created the index.html which redirects to the homepage using this, I changed the "webfolder" to my site's homepage. and saved it in web/sites folder of idisk.
<HTML><HEAD><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=webfolder/index.html"></HEAD><BODY></BODY></HTML>
and it didn't work as well without the www. With the www, the code showed up instead.
my website is www.mylenefoster.com
Thanks for your help.
This has nothing to do with index files and you don't need to do anything with it - you are making all more complex than it actually is or needs to be.
Whether you get to your site using the www or not is purely a CNAME forwarding issue and you domain name registrar is where you need to fix this.
Go to the DNS settings at your registrar, where I assume you went when first setting up forwarding? All registrars are different, but with some you need to delete the A records that are there already and set up CNAME. What you would need to do is set up 2 CNAME's, one for the www and one for @.
@ represents your domain name on its own, so http://domain.com. Set this up as @, CNAME web.me.com.
www represents your sub-domain, so http://www.domain.com. Set this up as www, CNAME web.me.com and then people should then be able to get to your url by using either domain.com or www.domain.com.
There is no need to set up any kind of forwarding or fiddle around with your index file. Simply change your CNAME forwarding and it should work.
