Redirection and domain aliasing are typically available in premium web hosting accounts. However, runbasicnet.com is for Run BASIC hosting, not your typical web hosting. The idea is to provide a Run BASIC server environment with a permanent URL. At the moment, we are running a Windows IIS web server as the front end, but all it does is grab HTTP headers and dig out a response. In other words, if you ask for a special HTML or graphic file, IIS will serve it up. The aliasing, redirection, and subdomain assignments for HTTP internet access are not available, due to the economics of the enhanced web server options. Some folks use an index.htm file in their RB account directories with a redirect to their published RB startup file, so users have a simple URL for primary access to whatever the RB programmer has set up. See runbasicnet.com/jterra for one example.
That's cool, Dave. Looks like I need to code a simple but snazzy app to advertise RB on my website. We really are just scratching the surface with RB, aren't we? This exponential growth is just so exciting! ;D
