How to set up URL forwarding
If you don't need full hosting and just want to forward all web visitors to your domain 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 on ACCOUNT 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 forwarding 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. Select this if you only want to use the URL forwarder on some but all subdomains for your domain or otherwise don't want to alter any DNS records unnecessarily.
Once you've selected your advanced settings, scroll all the way down and click Submit to save your forwarding settings.
