Question url redirect


i have a website (http://pollination.us) which i would like to use to help host a Google calendar. i would like people to type a simple address, http://spray.pollination.us and be taken instead to a google calendar, http://www.google.com/calendar/embed...dar.google.com, .

i own the pollination.us domain, so can i just put a symbolic link on my website?

thx

If your registrar provides subdomain forwarding, that is the easiest way.

can i just do something like a web page forward instead of subdomain forwarding? seems like that would be easier? (don't think i can do subdomain forwarding).

I could use http://pollination.us/spray if http://spray.pollination.us wouldn't work for page forwarding.

Would this question be better under programming?

WOOT!!! got it! haha, duh... ya, jantman you were right. my website management has an area called "subdomain management." I clicked on that and it allows multiple ways to forward subdomains. i only needed standard, but it works like a charm, and gives us the option to setup a "click-through" if we start getting a lot of traffic in the future and would like advertising.
