W3C Validator sees wrong code for redirected page

P: n/a
http://wallysanford.com is currently being redirected by Namecheap to my
server at home. The link to the W3C Validator has been working fine.
Suddenly, that link causes the Validator to see and properly reject the
following code, apparently some redirection plumbing that's not supposed to
show:

1: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
2: <HTML>
3: <HEAD>
4: <meta name="DESCRIPTION" content="">
5: <TITLE></TITLE>
6: </HEAD>
7: <!-- Redirection Services RedirectorB-DC 200-OK -->
8: <FRAMESET ROWS="100%, *" frameborder="no" framespacing=0 border=0>
9: <FRAME SRC="http://24.148.151.165" NAME="mainwindow"
frameborder="no" framespacing="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"></FRAME>
10: </FRAMESET>
11: <NOFRAMES>
12: <CENTER>
13: <H2>
14: Your browser does not support frames. We recommend upgrading your
browser.
15: </H2>
16: <br><br>
17: Click <a href="http://24.148.151.165">here</a> to enter the site.
18: </CENTER>
19: </NOFRAMES>
20: </HTML>

Is the W3C Validator broken, or Namecheap's redirection, or something else?

http://wallysanford.com/ is a frameset document that frames your real site,
which is http://24.148.151.165/
The link to the W3C Validator has been working fine.

The W3C validator is validating the frameset document. If you want it to
validate your real site, then you need to pass it that URL.

Why not just drop the IP address of your site into the validator? It then
validates your site, which is what you want it to do.

At the moment, it's validating the code it sees - which is the redirection
code.

Pete.
