I have an existing website and its

I want to re-direct my new domain name to the website mentioned above so that people can access my current hosted website by typing the short website name.

How do I do this? Thanks in advance!


That’s a pure redirect, created from the panel under Domains -> Manage Domains for Add New (Sub)Domain.

Keep in mind that when people type in, the redirect will update the browser URL to the address. You won’t be masking your real site’s URL.
