How do I forward my domain name to another website?

This article will help you to forward your domain name to another website that you own.

Before you get started, you’ll first need to ensure your domain is pointed to the 123 Reg nameservers. Otherwise, any configurations you’ve made to the DNS through our Control Panel will not take effect.

You will need to set your DNS at your nameserver provider. For more information on how to do this, please view the following article: How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?

Please note: it will take between 24-48 hours for any nameserver changes to become active.

Once you’ve done this, simply follow these instructions:

Step 1 of 6

Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.


Step 2 of 6

From there, select Domain Names within the ‘Manage active products’ section. Next, choose your domain name from the provided list and then select Manage.
