Is it possible to have more than one domain point to my foliopic site. For example I have a .com and .co.uk domain and would like to have them both pointing to my foliopic site. I use 1and1 as my domain host.

Thanks

Hi Ben,

You might be able to do this in 1and1 and telling one of your domains to redirect to the other one. Generally, it is best practice to do it this way so Search Engines don't think you have 2 different sites with the exact same information.
