URL Forwarding not forwarding


#1

I have set my domain to forward to my new domain.

https://mostmarvellouscompany.com/ --> https://mostmarv.com

The whois info seems fine:

Does anyone know why my rule is failing to forward tot he new domain?

Thanks,

If you don’t have regular DNS records, as @sandro suggested, you can use placeholders so the forwarding will work:

“A” record for example.com IP address 8.8.8.8 (visitors will never get this far)
“A” record for www with the same IP address.

Make sure your forwarder Matches something like *example.com/* so any request to that domain gets forwarded.

Thanks sdayman,

I put in two A names www & @.

The redirect is now working for www.mostmarvellouscompany.com but not mostmarvellouscompany.com or https://www.mostmarvellouscompany.com

My rules are :slight_smile:

https://mostmarvellouscompany.com/
mostmarvellouscompany.com/
http://.mostmarvellouscompany.com/

If I put *mostmarvellouscompany.com/ would that cover https and http or do I need to do them individually?

*mostmarvellouscompany.com/* should work
