Forward a domain

Domain forwarding (also often referred to as connecting, pointing or redirecting) lets you automatically direct your domain's visitors to a different location on the web. You can choose to forward your domain to a variety of places.
You can watch short video of this task farther down the page.

Note: Your domain must be registered with GoDaddy in order to use domain forwarding.
