Redirect (Forward) a Domain

Learn how to forward your visitors to another website when they attempt to access your domain.

Forwarding a domain allows you to redirect visitors to another website. An HTTP redirect will redirect your visitors to another site and they will notice that the domain name has changed in the URL bar of the browser. Using a frame redirect will appear to the visitor as though they were not redirected to another location because the URL bar will still display the original domain but the content loaded will be from the other website.
