What is domain name forwarding?

Domain forwarding is similar to when a web page redirects a visitor to another website, but instead of using HTML or a script to do the redirection, the domain name itself redirects to the website. When a domain is set to forward visitors to another website, the domain name does not stay in the web browser's URL bar.

Why/when would I use domain forwarding?

  • Pointing a custom domain to a non-custom domain
    If you launch your site with a non-custom domain and later choose a custom domain, you can use domain forwarding for this case. 

  • Pointing one custom domain to another custom domain (multiple domains for a single site)
    If you would like more than one custom domain to point to your site, you can use forwarding to point other domains to your main domain.

How do I forward my domain name?

Forwarding your domain name would be done at your domain registrar. Contact your domain registrar's support for assistance.
