From what I've heard they're great as long as you know what you're doing, but when things go wrong they really go tits up. But that's the same with many big companies; VM being the perfect example of it.

Lol, to true.
Yea I heard everything is fine with the servers and whatnot, it's when you need support that things tend to go bad.

VM don't provide that service, your best bet is to use easily's own nameservers and set up a redirect.

lookup 'masked web forwarding', easily say they support this function, which you will be able to access through your domain control panel.

Assuming you have your domain using their name servers it should just be a case of entering the address you want to forward to, i.e. your VM homepage addy, and enabling the option.
