How to set up URL forwarding
If you've just purchased a new domain and you want to forward all web requests to an existing site, you can do so using our free URL forwarding service.
- Log in. You should arrive at the Domain Management screen. If you're already logged in, click your username in the top-right corner and select Domain Management.
- Locate the domain you wish to forward. To the right of the domain will be a row of icons. Click the drop-down list labeled Details, and select the "Edit" option next to URL Forwarding
- On the Edit URL Forwarding screen, type the domain to which you wish to forward browser requests. Click Submit when you're done.
Porkbun uses a Temporary Redirect (302/307) to accomplish URL forwarding. In general, Porkbun recommends using this type of forward since it is easily reversible and will not impair SEO for the target site. Rarely, however, an individual will require a different type of forward. If you need a 301 Permanent Redirect or a Masked redirect, click "Toggle advanced settings" and scroll down to select a different redirect type.
You may also select to include the requested URI in the path redirection. For example, this will forward domain1.com/page1 to domain2.com/page1.
You can also select to only delete forwarding specific DNS records to prevent existing A and CNAME records from being deleted.
Once you've selected your advanced settings, scroll all the way down and click Submit to save your forwarding settings.
