Domain redirection

Posted: May 20, 2010 in Uncategorized

There are various methods available to redirect a domain. Redirection via html code is also possible but its not recommended. Many search engines find that it as a spam source.

Method: 1
Redirecting it via IIS
IIS -> domain properties -> Home directories -> Choosing “A redirection to a URL” type the path of the domain.
Also enable “The exact URL entered above”

Method: 2
Redirecting a domain in Plesk control panel – Plesk CP video tut

Unable to load the Inbox because it does not exist on the hard disk

-> provided permission to the following user
IME_ADMIN – Fullcontrol
IME_USER – Read only (default)

More information here:


Domains must be in “Drive:\MailBoxes\Postoffices ” If its not inside the postoffices folder, the above error will occur

Pictorial guide on VPS (Virtual private server – Parallels Virtuozzo )

The below content was actually posted by my colleague Mr. Senthil  in the cnet forum. I thought it will be good to post it on here.

Firefox pages runs faster by allowing multiple connections so it can download more than one file at a time. It’s only useful for broadband users, so if you’re still on dial-up you can just skip this one for now.

Here’s something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
