In order to promote your site on MySpace effectively, you have to type in the url in a bulletin, on your page, or something of that sort. However, ALL .synthasite URLs are disabled by MySpace claiming it's a phishing website... I believe this is because of the .synthasite... not sure if there's a way around that. However, if I can't post my site on myspace without people thinking I'll steal their passwords I may end up having to purchase my own domain name from synthasite. At which point... what happens if someone types in the current free site? is it redirected? or must all the customers be aware of this change? If this change in the URL will pull up an invalid website for the previous URL, that could be a lost of customers I would think... I could use some answers.

Hi Donald

Unfortunately it seems that due to an abuse of their service by users of another free site builder (not Yola), MySpace has blocked all free subdomains. We have spoken to them about this but it appears they are not planning to review this policy. The only solution we can suggest is that you buy a custom domain. If someone types in your subdomain they will get redirected. However, your MySpace links should all be to your custom domain to avoid the "phishing" message.

We have addressed this question elsewhere, but thanks for posting. Maybe other people with the same problem will see this thread.
