Create a URL Redirect/Frame

Article Number: KB 1219

Product: Domain Management

Problem

How do I forward my URL to a different website?

Solution

You can easily change your domain to forward if you are using our DNS servers using the following steps:

  1. Log into your account.
  2. Under the Domains menu, click My Domains.
  3. Click on the domain name you would like to forward.
  4. Click on Host Records.
  5. Change the www record type to URL Redirect (Or Frame). In the address put http://www.example.com, where example.com is your destination domain.
  6. Change the @ record to the same as the www record.
  7. Click Save.

More Information

The difference between a URL Redirect and a URL Frame is that when you visit an address using URL Frame within a web browser it will keep the URL of your domain in the browser's address bar whereas a URL Redirect will display the destination site in the web browser's address bar.
