 I need to forward (point) my domain name to my website. How do I setup URL forwarding?
Solution Please Note: If you do not see the host Settings (zone file) section this could mean that your domain is not currently set to use our DNS services. To change this you'll need to click the "nameservers" section and select to use the our name servers. Once you save this change you will be returned to your domain's control panel and the host Settings section should now be visible.

Use Record Type: URL Redirect if you want to forward the domain name to a website, and display that website address in the address bar.

Use Record Type: URL FRAME if you want to forward the domain name to a website, but continue to display your domain name in the address bar.

Use Record Type: Use A(ddress) record type if you are going to forward (point) to an I.P. Address (i.e., 123.456.56.6)

Line 1 Hostname = www: This forwards your domain if you enter the www's into the address bar of the browser. Example: www.mydomain.com

Line 2 Hostname = @(none): This forwards your domain if they forget to enter the www's into the address bar of the browser. Example: mydomain.com

Example:-

Hostname Address Record Type
www http://sampledomain.com URL FRAME
@ http://sampledomain.com URL FRAMe
