This tutorial will help you to set up free web redirection service, also known as HTTP, for your domain or its subdomains. We propose you three different kinds of forwardings :

  • IP forwarding

All HTTP requests are redirected to the IP of your choice. You have the opportunity to host your domain on your own server. You have to manage the HTTP server and deal pages to internet users.

  • The direct forwarding

The user will be forwarded to the URL of your choice, but the original domain name will disappear from the address bar of your browser to use the choosen destination address.

  • Transparent forwarding

The user will be forwarded to the URL of your choice, but the domain name will be commensurate in the address bar of your browser. Thus, the content of the URL will be displayed for the domain name.

Log on Your Account section "Domain Management", from here, open the scrolling menu "Services management", select "Web Forwarding"

You just have to click on a domain name to access to the forwarding setting screen.

3. Si vous désirez que le système de redirection récupére automatiquement le titre de votre page ainsi que les balises meta-tags, vous pouvez choisir cette option. (Ce paramétrage peut ajouter un petit temps de latence suivant l'extraction des informations). Autrement vous pouvez saisir votre propre titre qui sera défini pour le site.
