Redirection / forwarding free when buying domain?

Hi, if I buy a single domain for $7-8, will I then be able to configure forwarding/redirection on it to another address for free? Asking because on some services you have to pay extra for this. Thank you.

Somebody wrote a response, but it disappeared. Strange.

Yes you can, even if you dont buy the domain you can redirect it using dreamhost by setting it as your DNS server for the domain and then configuring the domain redirect in the control panel
