Next, login with your username and password. Once logged in, click on the “My Domain Names” or “Domain Manager” link. This will open a page with all of your domains listed. You will do the following process for each domain that you wish to forward.
Click on the name of the domain. You will see all information for the domain listed on this page. Look for a section titled “Forwarding” with a link beneath that should read, “Domain is not forwarded.” Click on this link. A box will open at the top of the page, select the “Forwarding” tab. Check the box that says “Enable Forwarding.” This will allow you to enter the URL that you want your domain to redirect to into the “Forward To:” field. Select the box that says “301 Moved Permanently” and click “OK.” These changes may take a bit to process so check back at the domain periodically.
If you are a using our RedFusionHosting.com service, it is important to know that the stats packages are not defaultly set up. The hosting packages do include a statistical package, but they will need to be turned on to be used. You can turn on your package from within the “statistical section”, within the “host manager”, or you can just ask us to do if for you.
With that being said, we would rather you not use the statistical package with in the hosting platform, and use Google Analytics to manage your statistics. Google Analytics is a far more powerful statistical package, and can be added to your account fairly quickly.
