I just did my first page and it's doing the same thing. http://www.wileycoyote.net works fine, but http://wileycoyote.net/ gives me an http 500 error.

@ Hisema

Here's a thread that was written by another member. Maybe it will help you find out if you are doing it correctly : http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

Best of luck.

@ Crunch

It seems to be working for me. Either you fixed the problem, or you just needed to wait a while longer for it to start working. Does it work for you?

I have about 100 of those co.cc domains and they are a mystery sometimes.
Sometime they work with www., other http://domain.co.cc and sometimes with domain.co.cc.
The co.cc domains names also do different thing on search engines. You can try to find you domain on different search engine try all the above possibility above. Most of the time you'll end up at co.cc. You have to almost summit your domain named threw one at a time. Yahoo wants you to summit http://www.domaimname.co.cc. If you try this it won't work. If you summit yahoo as http://domainname.co.cc it will go threw.
You can't put Alexa ranking with your domain.co.cc as it will come with as co.cc. However the back door make it look like a high ranking threw the widget and type in alexa in the search bar you can get yourdomain.co.cc on there but the ranking that is associated with it is co.cc ranking, not yours.
If you try for a free web site threw officelive they will not except as because they are not "real" domain names. However you can get all kinds of mail boxes with anything@yourdomainname.co.cc up to 500 mail boxes.
You'll never find the domain.co.cc on any whois. list except for co.cc whois list..
The main thing with co.cc is that you have to try all combination's to you find one that works. There are FREE and you don't own them. If you want a domain name that works with http://.domain.com or domain.com, or www.domain.com BUY one with.com or .net.or .org. Search engines summit will find these with no problem after you summit or after you get crawed.
I don't mind playing around with them anyways as I got free time.
One thing in closing is if you do stay with co.cc be patient. Sometimes I've waited for 3 to 4 days then contacted co.cc before they would let the domain site work. Other site with .com, net, or org are usually working with-in a day, most of time a few hours.

Hi Crunch,

I checked out http://wileycoyote.net for you, and was able to view a page. Is this your site?

Can you try viewing that address again, but clicking on the refresh button if it doesn't come up?

Yes, it's working for me now. It must have just taken some time to propagate through. :)
