Domain Forwarding

If you have a domain and wish to forward it to another URL then you have two options:

1) Standard Forwarding
2) Frame Forwarding

Frame forwarding will forward the user to the site you desire, but the original URL will remain in the address bar

Example: you have decided to frame forward johndoe.com to johndoe123.co.uk. Any user who visits johndoe.com will see the johndoe123.co.uk website but johndoe.com will remain as the URL in the address bar

Standard forwarding will forward the user to the site you desire, and the URL will also change.

Example: you have decided to standard forward johndoe.com to johndoe123.co.uk. Any user who visits johndoe.com will see the johndoe123.co.uk website and the URL in the address bar will change from johndoe.com to johndoe123.co.uk.

To set up forwarding just follow these steps:

*Please note that changing hosting on a domain will remove any application vault installations that may be on that domain, and it will not be recoverable, so a backup may need to taken if needed*
