Forward a domain

Domain name forwarding lets you automatically direct your domain name's visitors to a different location on the web. You can choose to forward your inactive domain to a variety of places.

If you own several domains, you will see the List View of your account:

Follow instructions for Manually Forwarding or Masking Your Domain Name if you see the List View.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Next to domains, click Manage.
  3. On the domain you want to set up, click either Use My Domain (if domain is newly registered) or Add Website.
  4. Click Connect to an Existing Site.
  5. Choose from one of the following options to point your domain name to:
    • A Domain You Own (other domains in your account)
    • Websites (Tumblr, Squarespace, Weebly, etc.),
    • Social Sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.)
    • Online Stores (Shopify, Etsy, etc.)
    • Media Sites (Flickr, YouTube, etc.)
    • Forward To Any Site (enter the URL of your choosing)
  6. Once you choose a forwarding destination, simply follow the instructions, either by clicking on the Connect Domain button or entering the correct website URL.

It may take 24-48 hours for your domain to connect to an existing site.
