Domain Name Forwarding – How To Redirect One Domain to Another Domain – Simple Steps + One Caveat

Domain Name Forwarding – How To Redirect One Domain to Another Domain – Simple Steps + One Caveat

Domain name forwarding is a method of redirecting your domain visitors to another domain or a different URL. There are a few good reasons of using this redirecting procedure like the ability to have a customized Web address that is easy to remember and come back to.

But how do you redirect one domain to another domain?

In this 3-minute tip video, I show you a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to forward your domain name. The video shows you the process within the GoDaddy platform but it will work similarly in other domain accounts. In addition, I show you another possible way to do the redirecting IF your domain nameservers are pointed AWAY from your domain registrar for some reason. Which in this case, you’ll have to create the forward on your hosting control panel.

Many people have multiple domains for one reason or another. Domain Name System (DNS) settings for domains can be confusing but forwarding a domain with a URL redirect is very easy at the domain level in your registrar.

    One thing to be aware of: GoDaddy Domain forwarding doesn’t support HTTPS for the forwarding domain. This means will work correctly but will result in a privacy error no SSL certificate.

  23. Syed Zain Uddin on April 18, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    But this redirection will work for Home page only… isn’t it? I think if we follow your method then all pages of old domain will redirect to home page of new domain. Am I right?
    What if I enter a service page of Old Domain URL (not a home page)?

    I want this: ->

    Not this: ->
