  How To Forward a Domain To Your Tool

This step-by-step guide walks you through the process. Depending on your registrar (where you bought your domain), this process will be different. There is nothing that needs to be done on the DoWellWebTools system—all the work is done on your registrar's platform. This step-by-step guide shows how it is done using GoDaddy.com (as of December, 2015).


Log In To Your Registrar's Domain Interface

If you are unsure how to do this, contact your registrar. If you don't know who your registrar is, use the http://www.whois.com website and enter your domain, then look for the "Registar."


Access Your Domain That You Want To Forward

Once I am logged into GoDaddy, I can see the menu for my domains:

I then click on my domain that I want to forward:


  Important Note!

You do NOT want to choose domain masking. This does not work with secure sites such as the DoWellWebTools platform.


Forward the Domain

In the forwarding section, click "Manage":

Click the "Add Forwarding" button (note: ignore the forwarding credits—as of this writing, you can do this without needing forwarding credits).

Select "https://" and enter the address of your tool as you see it in the address bar when the site is showing and match the options in the image below. Once done, click "Save" and follow any other onscreen directions. The change should take place within a minute or two.


  Important Note!

Sometimes the old domain path might be in your computer's cache, so if after a few minutes you are not seeing the forwarding, hold the shift key and click the reload button on your browser. If that does not work, try rebooting your computer. If that does not work, try accessing the domain on another device.
