Web forwarding

Updated: 10/11/2017 by Computer Hope

Alternatively referred to as domain forwarding or domain alias, web forwarding is a feature often provided by a web host or domain name registrar. For example, Computer Hope has several domains, such as "computerhope.net" and "computarhope.com" (misspelled) that forward to computerhope.com.

Tip: If you do not have a company hosting your website, a domain alias is also a great way to forward potential visitors to your Facebook fan page or YouTube channel.
