1. Will I need to change my website (destination URL)?
Not at all. There's no need to make changes to the website (destination URL)
you be will forwarding / redirecting web traffic for your domain name to.
2. Do I need my own domain name for URL redirection?
Yes, URL forwarding redirects web requests for a domain name to a
web site on a different server, so you need to have a domain name. If you do not have one
yet, feel free to register one
3. Will your forwarding services add advertising to my site?
Absolutely no advertising is added to forwarding accounts. No banners, pop-ups or advertising of any other kind will be added
to your destination URL by us.
4. My URL forwarding account is 'pending/. What does this mean?
This simply means you have not yet updated the nameserver information on your domain
name. Until you do so, we can not provide forwarding service for this domain name. Once you sign
up for an account, you have 30 days to update the nameserver information. After 30
days your redirection order will expire automatically, and you will not be charged. The correct
nameserver information to use is :
|Name Server Name
||Name Server Address|
5. Who is the registrar for my domain?
The below form will allow you to find out who the registrar is for .com/.net/.org domain
names. For other names, ask us.
6. Will this give me firstname.lastname@example.org?
No, it will not. If you wish to have email addresses @your_domain, you'll need a
real web hosting package. Forwarding only redirects web based requests to your destination URL.
7. Where can I get my own domain name?
We also offer domain name registration services for many different extensions. Click
here for more information.
Domains registered with us automatically have the correct nameserver information for use
with the redirection/forwarding service.
8. Will both www.mydomain & mydomain.com URL's work?
Only the version with the 'www.' will work for domain forwarding. If you wish for both to work,
you'll need a real web hosting account.
9. How long will it take for my forwarding account to be active?
That depends. For your domain to work with our services, you'll need to change
the nameserver information on the domain (see above). How long this takes depends on yourself
and/or your domain registrar. Once the domain reflects our nameservers (or if you
registered the domain with us), forwarding services will activate less than 24 hours.
New URL redirection accounts are activated nighly.
