Ok this is probably not possible but I will run it past you folks. I have two similar domains let's say click here and click here.
Currently I have both pointed to a single hosted site.

Normally of course a domain would be pointed to direct or forward for an index,html file as homepage.

However I would like to be able to point the click here to a particular page hosted on the existing site - eg. use a small amount of the already set up hosting space to effectively run a second very small site - which would probably be only one page -


Having tried with 1 & 1's control panel it doesnt seem possible as the convention is to redirect an url to a home page called index.html but I wonder if I am missing something.

In essence, I am just trying to avoid having to pay for more hosting tfor a small unconnected site when my current hosted space is underutilised though it msy not be possible.

Ps the click heres (forgot about those!) should be read as theoretical examples only eg

wwww mysite co uk and wwww mysite.com

set up a new directory set up within your webspace and create the single page website within that directory as index.html and point the domain to that directory

Reading that doesn't make much sense ....

Your main directory is something like /. on 1&1 if you create a new directory say /new1 and create your small web site within this new directory - if a single page simply call it index.html.
Using 1&1 directory set up point the domain you wish to this new directory and it will be as if a second unconnected website
