How do I set up domain forwarding?Log in to your domain account with the username and password emailed to you when you registered your domain name.
Make sure you are in 'Manage Domains'.
Beside the domain name, click 'Edit'. If you have just ordered your domain name you will have to wait 48 hours before being able to forward your domain.
Click 'Hosting Control Panel' in the top right corner.
If you can't see 'Hosting Control Panel' and it has been more than 48 hours, make sure you selected URL forwarding when you ordered your domain name. In 'Manage Domains' if you don't see 'URL Forwarding/DNS Hosting' listed below 'Domain Name Registration' then you will need to Add URL Forwarding.
Once in the myHosting panel, click 'Home' in the menu on the left.
Click the 'Setup' icon in the Hosting box.
Select 'Standard Forwarding' and click 'OK'.
Type in the entire domain name (i.e. http://www.digitalfinery.com.au) you are forwarding to and click 'OK'.
It can take up to 48 hours for DNS changes to propagate.

We recommend you shop around before choosing a provider. There are huge differences in hosting fees and these reflect the level of service you can expect, as well as reliability. It is worthwhile scanning through the Whirlpool Forums for Web Hosting to find out about the Australian hosting market.
Once you've selected and setup your hosting, you will be given some instructions from your hosting provider. You will need these instructions.
Log in to your account and select 'Manage Domains'.
Under 'Host Name' you will need to enter the DNS information given to you by your hosting company. These will look something like ns1.dns2.com. Under IP Address you can add the IP which will look something like 188.8.131.52. Sometimes you will only have the Host Name and that is enough information.
