Domain name redirects ?

Hey folks. My blog has started to get a lot of traffic so I wanted to give it a domain name. I purchased one from register365 and set it it up to redirect to my blogspot page. Worked fine..

But then, I started thinking a few things.. say I have a particular post on blogspot, I was kind of hoping I could set it up so www.domainname.com/posttitle would redirect to it but register365 doesnt have any obvious features to do so. Any ideas if it's possible ?

Cheers!

Dave

You should talk to reg365 about setting up a cloaked redirection for you.

You could always just create a php file that will redirect to the post you want!

PHP Code:
<?
Header
"HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently" ); 

Header"Location: http://domainname.blogspot.com/firstpost" ); 
?>
You'd name it your post title and place it in your /web folder on reg365.

eg. if you called it "firstPost.php"
then with it being in your /web folder you would access it through
www.domainname.com/firstpost.php
and it would redirect it to what ever address you put in the php file

Not the most elegant solution, as you'd have to create a new file for every new post you'd make, but you can try it if you want!

Edit...
Threw a working example up so you can see how it works

it'll redirect you to the boards website!
