Forward a domain

Domain forwarding (also often referred to as connecting, pointing or redirecting) lets you automatically direct your domain's visitors to a different location on the web. You can choose to forward your domain to a variety of places.
You can watch short video of this task farther down the page.

Note: Your domain must be registered with GoDaddy in order to use domain forwarding.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. If you aren't automatically directed there, make sure to select the My Products tab:
    My products tab

  4. Select your domain name from the list to access the Domain Settings page.
  5. On the Domains Settings page, next to your domain, click Use My Domain.

    • Online Stores (Amazon, Ebay, Etsy, etc.)
    • Media Sites (Instagram, YouTube, etc.)
