How do I add 301 (Permanent) Web forwarding?

This article will explain how you can add a 301 (Permanent) Web forwarding to your domain name.

You can use permanent Web forwarding to inform search engines that your domain name will be permanently pointing at the new location. However, you can change your permanent web forwarding settings later on if you need to.

Firstly, you’ll need to ensure your domain is pointed to the 123 Reg nameservers. Otherwise, you will be unable to manage them from the 123 Reg Control Panel.

Secondly, you will need to point your domain name to the Web forwarding IP address. To see how, please view the following article: How do I set up DNS for Web forwarding?

Please note: it will take between 24-48 hours for any new nameserver (DNS) records to become active. For more information on changing your nameservers please view the following article: How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?
