Hi
I created a website in iWeb for a friend of mine but I want his old webaddress(currently hosted by a company called 1&1 who's customer support is almost non existent) to redirect to the new iWeb created page.I've tried logging into the control panels of 1&1 but must have entered the wrong info because now it just asks for a user name and password when I type in the URL. I'm not very techy so if anyone could talk me through step by step that would be great.

You can use CNAME forwarding or ordinary web forwarding.
For CNAME enter their domain name into the personal domain name settings under your MMe account.  Then go to the DNS settings at 1 and 1 and set up a new CNAME for forward the domain name to web.me.com where the site is published.
If you don't want to use CNAME forwarding because it is under your MMe account, then use masked web forwarding.  Go and log into the account at 1 and 1 and then go to the web forwarding section and then mask and forward the domain name to web.me.com/username/sitename and this should then work.
