    Hi,

    My domain name is held at a different hosting site to my site. I can set it up so when someone goes to my domain they are automatically sent to the website but the permalinks ahow the http://address provided by the site hosts. Can I change things to replace it with my domain which would look better and will not change if I change web hosts?

    Thanks for your help.

    Mark

    You mean you have domain name registered by someone else and you hosting with a different host if so all you need to do is change name servers at registrar to point to your host account.
    Your host should have provided you with DNS settings.

    So under permalink settings I create a custom structure substituting my domain name url for the site url supplied by the hosting company.

    Thanks

    What is the domain name in your Settings>>>>General as that is domain name that is used.
    In permalinks you do not use domain name you suppose to use /%postname%/ so that permalinks use your title of page or post in urls.

    The wordpress url is http://www.markmcnee.site90.net
    The site url is http://www.markmcnee.site90.net
    and the permalink is http://www.markmcnee.site90.net/sample-post/ but my domain is markmcnee.com so I would like the permalinks to be http://www.markmcnee.com/sample-post/

    This domain name markmcnee.com is it pointing your host account if so you will need ask your host to change DNS.
    Some how markmcnee.com is redirected to http://www.markmcnee.site90.net
    markmcnee is subdomain name of site90.net

    then you will able to change domain names in Settings>>>General to your domain name.
