What is Domain Forwarding? View All Domain Registration Services

Domain name forwarding lets you automatically direct your domain name's visitors to a different location on the web. You can choose to forward your inactive domain to a variety of places.

Now you can put any domain name to work, whether you've built a Web Property for it or not. Just select a domain name (or names), add forwarding, and any visitor who types in that name will be redirected to the existing site you designate.

Forwarding is especially useful if you have a site with a long, complicated address. Now you can just register a simpler domain name (easily done using one of the less common top level domains, like .BIZ instead of .COM, for example) and then forward it. It's that easy.

* You must have registered your domain through or transferred it to GriotSites to add forwarding or forwarding with masking to it.
+ To be used with existing Forwarded Domain(s).

If you are a Griot Property Owner, this method does not pertain to you. You will have to log into your cPanel in order to forward domains, mask domains and perform other domain functions.
