Hi. I have a Baby Croc account with Hostgator but the script of the site I originally created now broke and it doesn't justify me paying the monthly hosting anymore. But I have an additional domain with them though, that redirects to a free site and I want to keep it active.
They just told me I have to switch to a Hatchling plan which is $8.95/month in order to do the redirect. That seems kind of pricey to do a redirect. Is this normal or is there a different way or a different company I can use that doesn't charge a monthly fee? If so, can you recommend a reputable one? Thank you very much.
Who is the domain registered with? I'd do what Julester suggests and look into redirecting the domain through them instead.
Thanks Marisa. I registered through Hostgator as well, through their service called Registryrocket. I went with the advice given here and just requested the close of the hosting account. If they insist on charging me anything monthly I'll transfer the domain to someone else. Thanks again everybody for the help.
That may not be a good idea! If you currently have the redirect setup through CPanel (your hosting dashboard), then if you close the hosting account, you'll lose the redirect.
You must set up the redirect on the domain name first. You should be able to go to your Domain Name Control Panel and set it up.

I thought a redirect could be done by the registars of your domain name. So you don't have to pay for site hosting - just the domain name. In the UK that is around £10-£30 (depending on the suffix). Should be roughly the same in the US.
I'm not sure I understand, but...
A. No fees is the norm.
B. Only hosting fees.
C. Never redirect fees. That's a scam.
D. There's more, but my mood for now.

Is it bad to route two URLs to the same place? Like have two domains and have them read the same? Is that like duplicate content? Sorry for the newbie question. :-/
