Redirect Domain

  4. In the next drop-down choose the domain you want to forward.
  5. If you want to redirect a specific file (such as info.html) enter it in the blank forward slash '/' field.
  6. In the Redirects to box enter the domain you want the traffic redirected to.
  7. In the "www. redirection" section choose how you want to handle 'www' redirects. The www redirection option allows you to configure how to handle redirects in regard to the www subdomain.

We also have a full guide on Redirecting Your Domain to www or non-www URL.

This article was beautifully done but I'm having trouble still. Basically, I have the inverse of this problem. I have a web-hosting service that uses cPanel and a domain at GoDaddy. How can I find the ip address in cPanel so I can put it in the forwarding request under GoDaddy?

For example, selecting this option would redirect to

Your issue sounds a little odd. You should be able to simply redirect the page to another URL in the same domain. If you're unable to do that, then please give us more information on how you're doing that. You can also contact our live technical support team (contact at the bottom of the page). They will be able to assist you immediately.
