    How do I get a domain to redirect to another website?

    You can try our domain and email forwarding plan. See Email & Domain forwarding | for details.

        Domain redirect is not easy

        I have been trying to forward a domain, which should be a simple procedure. I signed up for email/domain forwarding. what. I can do this in two minutes in GoDaddy...sorry....but I'm frustrated. I should be able to login to my account, select the domain I want to forward, and type in the forwarding address. Why is it so complicated. Please help someone...Thank you very much! :-)

          this is a feature we're hoping to improve in terms of ease of use in the near future. In the mean time, to create a forwarding address in your onCloud control panel,
          1) log into and click All Domains.
          2) click the domain name with your forwarding associated with it (presently its labelled as "Exchange")
          3) scroll down and click Website and Email Forwarding () to log into that subscription.
          4) Click Exchange
          5) Click Contacts > Add a new Contact
          6) Enter your settings and be sure to assign the email address at the bottom to your forwarding domain and click Submit.

            Domain Redirect

            Instead of setting up a redirect in the Control Panel, you can set it up yourself. There are two kinds of redirects: server redirects and client redirects.

            Server Redirects
            This depends on whether you are using IIS or Apache. If you're using Apache, create a file called .htaccess with the following line in it:

            redirect 301 /old/old.htm
            Make sure to change the example domains. Save the file and upload it to your server.

            Client Redirects
            Just add the following meta tag to the head section of an HTML page:

            HTML Code:
            <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; URL=" />
            Make sure to change the example URL.

            When someone visits the page, they will be redirected to the new page.

            These are just some examples. You can also set up redirects in Javascript and PHP, but I don't want to go crazy with examples.
