Forwarding or masking your domain with GoDaddy

This is basically for my own future reference note the IP address is important and needs to be used for the @ A record.

To Forward or Mask Your Domain

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. In the My Products section, click Domain Manager.
  3. Select the domains to modify.
  4. Click Forward, and then select Forward Domain.
  5. Select http:// or https:// depending on your server settings. For more information, see HTTP vs. HTTPS.
  6. In the Forward to field, enter the URL to which you want your domain to forward.
  7. To automatically update your nameservers to accommodate your forwarding changes, select Update my DNS setting to support this change.
  8. To view additional options, including masking, click the Advanced Options hyperlink.
  9. Select one of the following:

    Forward Only
    Specifies the length of time for this forwarding setting. Select one of the following Redirect types:
    • I am permanently forwarding my domain — Redirects to the site you specified in the Forward To field using a "301 Moved Permanently" HTTP response. The HTTP 301 response code tells user-agents (including search engines) that the location has permanently moved.
    • I am only temporarily forwarding my domain — Redirects to the site you specified in the Forward To field using a "302 Found" HTTP response. The HTTP 302 response code tells user-agents (including search engines) that the location has temporarily moved.
    Forward with Masking
    Prevents the forwarded domain URL from displaying in the browser's address bar, and lets you specify Meta Tags for search engine crawlers by completing the following fields:
    • Title — Displays at the top of the browser window and in search results.
    • Description — A short description of your website to display in search engine results.
    • Keyword — A list of comma-separated keywords that describes the content and purpose of your website.



  10. Click OK.


 NOTE: Forwarded domains can take up to 24-48 hours to become active.
