Use the drop down menus to make a selection for each of the following fields:

  • Domain Name
  • Hosting Plan
  • Mapping Location


The Mapping Location is a directory or folder which is stored inside your hosting space.

Example:

You may want to map a domain to a folder called blog so when someone types your domain into the browser the domain automatically directs to the folder where you have uploaded the files for your blog page.

www.domain1.co.uk - 123-reg hosting package

www.domain2.co.uk mapped to www.domain1.co.uk/blog
