Redirecting a new domain to an existing hosted site


#1

Hi,

I am new to DreamHost and I bought a domain name for $10/yr.

Domain Name: www.indiaubc.com

I have an existing website and its
http://www.ams.ubc.ca/clubs/utsav/

I want to re-direct my new domain name www.indiaubc.com 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 indiaubc.com, the redirect will update the browser URL to the ubc.ca address. You won’t be masking your real site’s URL.
