Domain forwarding is similar to when a web page redirects a visitor to another website, but instead of using HTML or a script to do the redirection, the domain name itself redirects to the website. When a domain is set to forward visitors to another website, the domain’s name does not stay in the web browser’s URL bar. Instead, the new page’s URL is displayed. If you want to keep the domain’s name in the URL bar, you need to use stealth forwarding.
Domain forwarding only affects the domain itself. If you want to set up email forwarding with your domain, that is done separately.
Domain forwarding has two options: forwarding only and forwarding with masking. Both options will redirect your visitors, but forwarding with masking has additional features you can use.
