URL redirect1 user found helpful
I would like to give them an address like:http://www.trd.org.
Is this possible through this system? I searched the forums and couldn't find the right answer. Thanks so much!
But if you just want a short URL to give out to people, it doesn't matter.
Thanks a lot.
# -- Redirect to another url, pretty url enabled Redirect 301 /old-page http://mywebsite.com/new-page
note the space between /old-page and http://
You would simply set the new domainhttp://www.trd.org to forward/redirect to the long URL of the page you mentioned.
Assuming this is all about making a long URL simple to give out and key in this is the way to do it.
Hope that helps.
For instance, I buy domains in the UK via three registrars: 123 reg, Fasthosts and Donhost. All of these will let me do the forwarding I mentioned to any other URL on the internet.
So what is relevant is where you will buy/or have bought the new short domain you want to web forward to the long URL. It's in their control panel where you will be able to set this up.
