BigRock offers several freebies along with any Domain purchase. Domain forwarding being one of them is an interesting feature to note down. Although a percent of our customers understand this concept, a bunch of them yet lie clueless & aren’t aware about the advantages it holds.
So here we are, simplifying this useful concept, for all those who own a Domain & for the ones who are still thinking about getting one.
Domain Forwarding lets you point your domain name to another home page or web site location. In other words Domain forwarding means, using another new Domain name in place of your existing Domain name.
Let’s take an example to understand things better – Ms. Sonia the owner of a fashion boutique, namely ‘Little London Boutique’ in Mumbai, has her web presence namely ‘www.LittleLondon.com’. After a few months, she decides to change her business name to ‘Pink Paris’. Worried about changing the website name, she got in touch with BigRock, from where she purchased her Domain. Domain forwarding was the solution to her tiny little problem.
So now, when Ms. Sonia’s customers would type http://www.LittleLondon.com in their browsers, it would automatically get redirected to http://wwwPinkParis.com, with the same website. This free service with your domain purchase helps you add a new Domain name to your existing domain name. Now she wouldn’t have to publicize her new boutique name to all her customers.
Here’s how it works:
Just select a Domain name (or names), add forwarding, and any visitor who types in that name will be redirected to the existing site you designate. Another use of Domain Forwarding is, if you have a site with a long, complicated address all you have to do is register a simpler Domain name and then forward it.
It’s that easy 🙂
Domain forwarding can be used for the following reasons:
- Change in business name
- During the merger of two websites
- Change in website name
- Shortening a long Domain name
- A user might want to move his or her pages to a new domain.
So, if you have experienced any of the above issues, Domain forwarding is the solution!
