Hey there Jon Leuty here and thanks for visiting my blog, as you may well have seen in the previous video this blog post today is a short training video and is all about how to forward and mask a domain name using Godaddy.

Just to say that I use Godaddy because  I like them, I’ve used them for a long time, I highly recommend them their customer service is excellent,  however,  what I’m going to show you today is applicable to almost all of the other domain name service providers out there so you can use this technique, you can use this method with all of them.

There might be a few subtle changes within the back offices and within your account etc, but the general thing, the whole aspect of it will be very similar so I want you to bear that in mind.

Also, to keep this training video as short as possible I’ve assumed that you already know how to buy a domain name and how to get into the back office of that domain and to access all of the tools and resources that your provider provides you.  Having said that we’re going to skip over now straight into my account with Godaddy where I’ll briefly,  and it’s only a couple of minutes,  where I’m going to show you how easy it is to forward and mask a domain name,  lets head on over there now,  so bear with me please.

Ok, we are in my account, but don’t forget what this training is it’s just to show you how to forward and mask a domain name, ok? I’m assuming at this point that you know how to buy a domain name, now within Godaddy if I click on this you’ll see all of my domain names, and the one I’m going to click on today is….. this one here make-your-online-fortune.com,  all I have to do is to click on manage, now bear in mind that this will be very similar which ever domain name service provider you are using.

This is Godaddy so I want you to remember that, but most of the domain systems are very similar so there will be a way of doing this whichever hosting company you are using, but if you are with Godaddy then this is the way you do it!

Click on manage and that is going to take me into that domain, and you can see this is the domain……

As you can see this is the domain, make-your-online-fortune.com  it’s a domain, forward to, that’s where it’s forwarding to, that is my affiliate link for Aweber just so that you knew, that’s my affiliate link for Aweber and I’ve got it forwarded with masking and basically what that means is if I promote that domain name that will be the domain name that will appear, that domain name will appear in the top browser bar where you type website addresses on the search engines.

But the most important thing is, I’m going to go to that page , OK so this is my page, and I’ll move this up so you can see, right up here you can see that there is make-your-online-fortune.com domain name.

And if I go back to Godaddy, I’m back on Godaddy now,  where you can see that if I didn’t have masking on it would be showing that in the browser bar, which is my affiliate link, it’s actually not an affiliate link that one its actually a URL that Aweber give me because that is a squeeze page.

But if that  was an affiliate link then you can see that make-your-online-fortune.com has masked the other URL so that is what you see in the browser window.

So that’s pretty much it, and I ‘m not going to make any changes to this because it’s already set-up, but you can see that it is extremely easy,  so it’s as easy as that really, that is how you set-up, (you see that is the URL Aweber give me for my squeeze page) and it quite clearly says there “forward with masking”.

Now you can have “forward” on it’s own,  but I always recommend “forward with masking“.

So I hope that’s clear, I hope you understood that, I hope that’s OK for you,  any questions obviously leave them underneath this blog post but I hope that is clear for you,  by the way,  if you find this video isn’t clear and you want to know more about this sort of stuff then my advice is to go straight to the Godaddy website where you will find lots of training on there where they will show you how to do this probably much better than me.

By the way, you can get to the Godaddy website by clicking the image below this blog post.
