This Article will assist you if you need to serve a domain name or several domain names that point to a web site hosted on another server. For both adding a new domain forwarder and reconfiguring an existing domain you will need to access the customers control panel and select the correct subscription.

Access the Customers Control Panel

1. Click the Customers shortcut in the navigation pane.

2. Find the Client you wish to create the domain forwarding for and select the control panel

3. If you are subscribed to several hosting packages and have access to several web spaces associated with your account, select the required web space in the Subscription menu at the top of the screen.

To add a new domain forwarder:

1. Click the Websites & Domains tab.

2. Click Add New Domain.

3. Specify the following:

a. In the Domain name box, type the domain name that you have registered with your service provider or a domain name registration company.

b. Under DNS server configuration, select the option Keep master DNS zone on this server.

c. Under Hosting type, select the Forwarding option.

d. In the Destination address box, type the Internet address to which you want to redirect visitors.

e. Under Forwarding type, select the preferred type of forwarding. With standard forwarding, a user is redirected to the site and the actual site’s address is shown in the user’s browser, so the user always knows that he or she is redirected to another address. With frame forwarding, a user is redirected to the site without knowing that the site actually resides at another location, therefore, frame forwarding should be preferred.

4. Click OK.

To reconfigure an existing domain and make it a domain forwarder:

1. Go to Websites & Domains tab > domain name.

2. Click the Change link next to the Hosting type field.

3. Specify the following:

a. Under Hosting type, select the Forwarding option.

b. In the Destination address box, type the Internet address to which you want to redirect visitors.

c. Under Forwarding type, select the preferred type of forwarding. With standard forwarding, a user is redirected to the site and the actual site’s address is shown in the user’s browser, so the user always knows that he or she is redirected to another address. With frame forwarding, a user is redirected to the site without knowing that the site actually resides at another location, therefore, frame forwarding should be preferred.

4. Click OK.
