Display site when .net is entered and not .net/blog (6 posts)

    I have purchased a domain name http://www.twistedskies.net and the current address to get to my wordpress site is http://www.twistedskies.net/blog how do I get it all I have to type is http://www.twistedskies.net and not/blog

    I have tried this before and I ended up having to hardcode the WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) in the wp-config.php file.

    I am hosting with JustHost and the blog folder that contains the site sits in public_html, I had a previous index.html page that you would see when typing in http://www.twistedskies.net but that has now been removed along with all other files and folders associated with it.

    Not really sure where to go to get this working now......

    Many thanks in advance

    It seems your site is infected with malware. Please the report here.

    Do you have a control panel with your hosting provider? you can domain map to any folder within your hosting so that when someone types http://www.yoursite.com and not specifically http://www.yoursite.com/blog will be directed to the correct place. Or you can setup a 301-redirect to the url of your choice, in your case http://www.twistedskies.net/blog

    Hope that helps a little.

    No worries, did you domain map or 301-redirect?
