  URL Forwarding - Information page

You will receive this service FREE of CHARGE and BANNER FREE to forward your domain name to the URL of your choice.

URL forwarding is perfect if you have a domain registered with us, and want people to be able to visit your website hosted somewhere else with a long web address (URL). For example, if you are Jane, and you own "", why would you want people to type in ""? Wouldn't you rather have them type in ""? Well, now you can FREE OF CHARGE!

Some Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Will people be able to see the URL I'm forwarding to?
No, when you activate URL forwarding, your URL is "cloaked". "Cloaking" means that your domain will remain permanently in the address bar of the browser, not the web address of your website.

2. Can I remove the cloaking?
Cloaking is accomplished by using a frame on our servers, which then loads the content of your site into that frame. This frame does not allow for any modifications by you- either title bar or META tags, etc. Cloaking may also interfere with the coding of some websites with dynamic features- JavaScript, ID tags, etc. It will also interfere with secure websites, as part of your site will not be secure with cloaking. This will prevent the "lock" from showing up in browsers, etc. We can, on request, deactivate cloaking for your domain. This will result in a straight redirect to your site, with no frame. All your code, including title and META tags, etc. will appear, but so will the "real" URL you are forwarding to. If this is what you want, simply ask us to make this change for you. Please provide the domain, and the username and password of your account.

3. What if I want to cancel URL forwarding?
URL-forwarding is automatically disabled after you make a DNS change. Because it will take 24-48 hours for your DNS change to propagate, URL-forwarding will remain active while the change is in progress, so that you do not experience any down time for your website. Once your new DNS servers have propagated, however, and your domain is no longer residing on our forwarding servers, that will automatically render URL-forwarding inactive. URL-forwarding will still be in your account for this domain, however, for the full length of the term you chose. You may, of course, use URL-forwarding again if your new hosting doesn't work out. You merely need to change your DNS back to our forwarding servers:


You may also, of course, abruptly terminate your forwarding by deleting your forwarding address. Erase the URL you are forwarding to, and submit your change. Your domain will resolve to an error page immediately, using the bogus URL http://no-where.

4. Can I change the forwarding URL?
You may change the status on your URL forwarding at any time by logging back into the domain manager. Once you have logged in, click the URL-Forwarding link. On the first page, you will see the action links, and underneath will be a box containing your current forwarding information, as well as the status of those forwards. The action links are:

"Add Forward" - To add a new URL-forward to a domain in your account, click this link. Put a checkmark next to the domain you wish to forward, and click the "Continue" button. On the next screen, enter the forwarding address, and choose the length of the forwarding term.  Finalize the payment information and click "Submit".

"Edit Forward" - To modify an existing URL-forward, click this link. Put a checkmark next to the forward you wish to modify, and click the "Continue" button. On the next screen, you may edit the forwarding address.  Click the "Continue" button and verify your changes.

"Renew Forward" - If your URL-forward is expiring, you may click this link to renew it. You may only renew a forward for equal to or less than the term remaining on the domain itself, or one year, whichever is greater. Place a checkmark next to the domain, and click "Continue". You'll be able to select the renewal term for your domain in the drop-down box. Click "Continue" to verify the term and payment information.

5. Is there anything I can't do?
Due to traffic restrictions, we strictly prohibit the sending of unsolicited email promoting any domain hosted on our forwarding servers.
