How To Forward A Domain Name

 

There are a lot of domain name registration providers, I prefer to use GoDaddy. So if you don't already have a domain name simply use GoDaddy to search for it, once you find one that's available simply purchase it and create an account. Here is the link http://www.godaddy.com or you can also search for them in your partner store section on shop.com.

Once you purchase the domain name you will want to forward that to your website.

Here are the instructions.
1. Scroll down and click on "My Account" on the bottom left on the website.
2. On the next page you will see a "Domains" on the left and a green "LAUNCH" button on the right.
3. Click on launch.
4. A new window will open, click on your domain name you want to forward.
5. When the page loads, you will see the "Domain Information" section on the left.
6. Scroll down a little bit and you will see "Forwarding" and to the right you will see "Manage".
7. Click on manage and a new pop up window will open.
8. In the box, type in your website completely including your portal name and then hit ok.
9. You will see a message letting you know that it's complete and that it will take 1-2 hours for it to take effect.

That's it, it's that simple.

One tip: Leave out the http:// when adding your website in the box.
