    Ok so I set up a gmail account for my other email account. @lakeworth1410.org this is done. I can get on gmail and get my information. However the process to get to the gmail account is very difficult and I am not sure if the other brothers could do so. I am wondering if anyone could help me figure out how my hosting guy made it to where when I go to www.mail.fortworth148.org it sends me to the sign in page for my gmail account. I would like to go to www.mail.lakeworth1410.org and be able to get my mail.

    Code:
    <html><head>
      <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; url=http://www.example.com/">
    </head><body>
      <p>Please follow <a href="http://www.example.com/">link</a>!</p>
    </body></html>
    
    i believe that's it.

    the same way blake has masonsoftexas.com now forwarding to masonforums.com

    there's a way to do it with apache as well using .htaccess

    so do I go into my host and create a subdomain of www.mail.lakeworth1410.org? Is this also how hosting people do redirects for like http://lakeworth.org incase someone forgets the www?

    I am new at this webdesign and hosting thing but I want to give it a try.

    you can also park a domain. for example I have saintjohnslodge51.com and mckinneymasons.com but they go to the same site.
