Forwarding a domain name to your website
Step-by-step guide to forwarding your domain name
Forwarding a domain name is not as hard as it seems. You certainly don’t need to be a professional to do it. To guide you through this process, we’ve made a ‘How to forward a domain name’-guide for you.
Step 1: Log in to your registrar
To start forwarding, you need to access the domain name settings. These are located on the website of your registrar.
Step 2: redirecting
Forwarding, or redirecting, is simple: most registrars have a ‘forwarding’ box you can tick, or a field you can activate. Fill in the URL of the domain name you want to redirect to. Press ‘save’. Done!
Step 3: wait and confirm
When you’re done filling in the required info, it’s smart to do a double check. One typo messes up the entire redirect. When you’re certain everything is in order, and your changes have been saved, all you have to do is wait. It takes a while for the registrars servers to process your request. Shouldn’t take more than an hour, generally. Enjoy your redirect!
