my site only works on certain browsers. on others, it attempts to download. a web developed told me that the problem was my mainframe is pointing to a .com file, when it should be a .html file. i deleted the .com file on my remote host, but all that did was basically delete the home page of the site. i need to point the mainframe to html file so that it may display on all browsers

Hello viking84,

Thank you for your question. I looked at the coding for this web page, and there is a line of code in your index.htm , calling this file in using a frame:
comedycobra_idx.com

If you want a '.com' file to load you will have to specify this in the code of your:
.htaccess

If you want the 'index.html' file to load, then just rename the index.htm file to something like:
index.htm.old

This will cause the 'index.html' file to load by default.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.
