Domain Web Forwarding via DNS

If your domain is registered with Nimbus Hosting and is using our nameservers, you'll be able to use the youraccount.nimbushosting.co.uk domain management section to forward this domain's traffic over to another site. For example you may have myoldbusinessdomain.com and you want all traffic that hits that domain to be automatically forwarded over to mynewbusinessdomain.com. 

1. Log into https://youraccount.nimbushosting.co.uk/clientarea.php. with your email address and the password we gave you when you first joined us (or the one you have changed it to since). 

2. Click on Domains -> My Domains. 

Web Forwarding - Domains - My Domains

3. Click on the tool icon, then 'Manage Domain' next to the domain you want to forward.

5. Tick the 'Forwarding Active', and then input the full URL of where you would like the web traffic to be forwarded to. Click 'Save Changes'.

6. You'll get a prompt warning you that the DNS records will be changed on the domain. Click 'OK' to complete the process.

7. You'll now need to wait for the propegation - generally this will take an hour to complete.
