I'm glad you posted your question, Traci.

I have a domain name registered with a .net suffix that I don't use--just
reserved it to prevent anyone else from taking it. I checked it and found
that my hosting site was using that address to display ads. Now I guess I
have to set up a redirect to my .com site.

I wonder if it would be a good idea for you to put up a "Coming Soon" page.
I think I've seen recommendations not to do that, but it seems like a better
alternative than having people get the page that's currently displayed.

I'll be interested in comments from others on the list. This is something
I'd never heard of before.
