Is your installation of phpbb a one-click install? Is it important to you to keep your one-click install status or would you be happy to just do upgrades manually? Where is the original domain hosted?

Forwarding is like when you key in olddomain in IE, it automatically goes to newdomain. Forwarding is handy when you have a web site built elsewhere and you want to give people an easy-to-remember domain name to reach your site.

To do that, go to DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> DNS

I am not sure what you want to do. But you may want to take a look at this DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> Web Hosting --> Edit --> Redirected

Greeting Lensman

The site was build with phpbb installation files …not one click…than all files were transferred using FTP…any furthur change were made to files and transfered through FTP.
site is unique in a sense that it uses Urdu language instead of English. The files were obtained from a web site… urduweb.org which is hosted by Dream host also. They are no longer phpbb2 based forum. They have moved on to v-bulletin

Reason for change domain name is to be able to use Google and other method of advertisement … This name is long and the lenght is not acceptible by Google Ad. Because of name is too long and people do not put in Favorite, they forget and never come back.

Site is new so i do not have any specific reason to keep same name.

Web Site and both domain name are here at DreamHost and obtained through DreamHost.

Thanks
