Managing URL and email forwards

Last Updated: Jul 10, 2017

If you have a lot of domain and email forwards set up, it can be tedious and time-consuming to go through them one domain at a time. That is why we have created a tool that allows you to view and manage all active forwards from one simple location. You can set up new forwards using this tool, or follow the conventional way, as outlined in the URL forwarding and email forwarding guides.

How to view and manage your forwards:

  1. Log in to your Name.com account.
  2. Click on My Account in the top menu bar, and then click Forwarding Tools.
  3. To view all forwards, click the Show all URL Forwards in my account button located on the top right.
  4. URL forwards will appear on the URL Forwarding tab, and you can see your email forwards by clicking the Email Forwarding tab.
  5. Use the Edit and Delete buttons to manage or make changes as you see fit.

How to add a new forward:

  1. Log in to your Name.com account.
  2. Click on My Account in the top menu bar, and then click Forwarding Tools.
  3. To add a forward, choose the domain you would like to manage by using the drop-down at the top of the page.
  4. Select the appropriate tab of either URL Forwarding or Email Forwarding and enter in the destination your URL/email should point to in the text box.
  5. Click Add URL/Email Forwarding Record to finalize.

Note: If you want to set up a URL or email forward for a domain in your Name.com account, you must be using our nameservers. It may take upwards of 24 hours for the forward to take effect once you add the forwarding record to your domain for the first time.
