UPDATE: PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE COMMENT OF 1/24/14 TO SEE THE NEW NAMESERVER AND URL FORWARDING INFORMATION FOR THE NEW WEBSITE PLATFORM, EFFECTIVE JANUARY 19, 2014
Free URL Forwarding and/or Masking from Cosmotown
AT Cosmotown.com, you can forward your domain to another website/URL. Forwarding will redirect your domain name to another URL without having to change any DNS settings (ie. A records, CNAME etc). You can redirect your domain name and have the domain name OR the destination URL (URL Masking) show up in your browser's address bar.
There are severals reasons you may set up URL Forwarding:
1) You have used a free website builder/editor such as Weebly or Wix to create a website (ie. subdomain.weebly.com). You can use our forwarding feature to connect your domain name to the new website.
2) Your website has moved addresses. If you have purchased a new domain you can use forwarding to redirect all your traffic from your previous domain to your new one.
3) You may have multiple domains point to the same website. You can use forwarding to redirect visitors to each of those domains to the website.
NOTE: You must set your name servers to ours to use the Forwarding feature.
You have two types of forwarding to choose from:
URL Framing (Masking) - Visitors will see your domain name (not the forwarding URL) in their address bar. In scenario 1 above, this would be most appropriate.
URL Redirection - Visitors will see the forwarding URL in their address bar. For scenarios 2 and 3 above, you'll probably want to use this option to brand the new website address.
Please see the below comment of 1/24/14 for detailed instructions on how to forward your domain using the new Cosmotown website.
