How do I map a domain name to my hosting?

This article explains what domain mapping is and why you might consider using with your 123 Reg hosting package.

Domain Mapping is a feature you can use to point multiple domains to your primary hosting account.

You can map domain names to any desired location within your hosting, for example you can map a domain to a blog folder so that the domain goes the the blog page.

When a domain is mapped to a hosting package, the hosted website will be visible by going to that domain name.
