New TLD question: point to existing hosting


#1

I registered one of the “New TLD” domains, and I would like to point it to an existing .com domain that is fully hosted at DreamHost.

How do I do this?

I see the DNS settings panel in the New TLD’s > Manage screen, but I don’t find how to point it specifically to an existing host.

You can just add your new TLD domain to the Manage Domains page of your web panel as you would with any other domain you’d like to host. Add it there, and set up a redirect to point to the existing .com domain. :slight_smile:

Ah. didn’t think of that. That makes sense and is now painfully obvious.

The route I took (which appears to work) was to set the DNS to Dreamhost’s DNS in the New TLD Domain Manager screen. Then I went into the “Host Records” screen and changed the top 3 entries to type “URL Forward” and then changed the Address fields to point to the existing .com domain.

Thanks for your help!
