Can't directly access my web page through hyperlink

My web page was put together by the Spanish yellow pages company (closely
associated with -- but don't ask me how -- with the ISP Telefonica). I can
access the page by going to the yellow pages homepage, and typing in the
name in the "Firm" box. But if I try introducing the URL directly in the
address field of IE or Opera, I get an "Under Construction" message.

Yellow Pages say they can access my page directly through the address field
of IE. But I've rung three friends, and all of them have the same difficulty
as me.

There is a hyphen in the address, so perhaps Paginas Amarillas are using a
special form of hyphen, but I've tried all the usual variants without
success.

The (non-operational) page address is: www.eurotrad-traductores.com

The access that works is:

http://www2.paginasamarillas.es/site...rweb&site=paol

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Works for me (sort of...) See below.

So can I. See below.

...which is operational for me, and which immediately redirects to:

<http://www2.paginasamarillas.es/sites/100/575/924/001/languages/ES/home.html>

...which is a site that requires JavaScript to be ON. I see it with
Firefox and with Opera. I don't use IE. If JavaScript is off or
disabled, there isn't much to be seen. This is like turning off your web
server for about six weeks a year. You are losing all those visitors who
either turn it off for security reasons, or it isn't in their browser,
or it is stripped by a company firewall.

I can access your page at the link you provided via SeaMonkey. Unlike
Beauregard, the address area in my browser remains as
<www.eurotrad-traductores.com>.

I can also access the page via IE. However, in this case, none of the
images loaded and the page looks quite different. Even the fonts are
different. Yet the address area still has <www.eurotrad-traductores.com>.

I use SeaMonkey as my Web browser because I want
a browser that complies with Web standards. See

It's a redirected stealth frameset. I got the other URL from the
source.

Get real hosting for http://www.eurotrad-traductores.com/ rather than the
frame-based cloaking you've got now.

Add HREF attributes to your navigation links so they work when JavaScript
is disabled/unavailable. The HREF attribute should have a real URL (e.g.,
href="home.html").
