How to setup Web Forwarding on my Domain

Crazy Domains' standard free Web Forwarding, included with every Domain Name, will allow you to forward your domain to another domain or server. All you have to do is modify the DNS Record within your Account Manager.

The first set of instructions here is for free Web Forwarding, which must be set up manually. If you would like a more convenient option that can be set up in one click, a second set of instructions follows on how to set up Web Forwarding with Premium DNS.

Free Web Forwarding Setup Instructions

You can set up free Web Forwarding by following these instructions:

  1. Click on My Account at the top of this page.
  2. Ensure that Account Manager is selected.
  3. Enter your username and password and click Log In.
  4. Click on Domains in the menu bar at the top of the page.
  5. Click on the domain you wish to update.
  6. Scroll down to the DNS Settings, click the menu icon on the right and select Add Record from the drop-down menu.
  7. Select A Record from the drop-down menu and click Add.
  8. Enter the Sub Domain if necessary, followed by the A Record IP address.
  9. Click Update.

Make sure the site/server you are forwarding to is configured to accept your domain. Usually this is done by using Parked or Addon domains with your current hosting provider.

For the world's fastest and most reliable Web Forwarding, we now offer Premium DNS. This service offers you a One-Click Web Forwarding feature which connects your domain name to a reliable and secure cloud network utilising multiple locations to ensure your Web Forwarding is the fastest possible! Premium DNS also supports a vast array of other features and tools for your domain name.

We recommend Premium DNS for all business domain names. This upgrade is available within your Account Manager.

Premium One-Click Web Forwarding Setup Instructions

You can set up premium one-click Web Forwarding by following these instructions:

  1. Click on My Account at the top of this page.
  2. Ensure that Account Manager is selected.
  3. Enter your username and password and click Log In.
  4. Click on Domains in the menu bar at the top of the page.
  5. Click on the domain you wish to manage.
  6. Scroll down to the DNS Settings - Premium section. If you do not yet have Premium DNS, simply click Upgrade and follow the prompts. Otherwise click the menu icon on the right and select Web Forward from the drop-down menu.
  7. Enter the forwarded Subdomain in the left field if needed and enter the Domain that you wish to forward to in the Forward to Domain field.
  8. Click Update.

You will not need to configure any settings with your hosting provider, as Premium DNS will host all your DNS records.

Note: All DNS updates will take up to 2 hours to resolve across the global networks. After you have performed this action please wait for the update to take full effect.
