How do I redirect my domain to another address?

I currently have and I would like to redirect it to without having to use html code.

I have already tried this with html but when is searched for, it flashes the yola site for a second then goes to the moonfruit domain. What I really want is to type in the domain and what you see is the moonfruit site.

I got the domain through GBBO and have another which I signed up for a while ago. I have been able to redirect the other one with no problems through google sites but since it has changed to Yola I am having difficulties working out how to do it.

Please help! Thank you.

assuming both domains live at the same place, contact your domain host, ask them to do a "permanent forwarding" without masking of the old url to the new site's url. you'll need to make the moonfruit url the main address for ranking's sake. you can have as many other url's you want (like the .net, .org, .info, .biz versions - I always suggest that my clients get them all before someone else capitalizes them) all being forwarded to the main url. they should be able to do this over the phone in a few minutes.

Hi there Ammo.Alexa,

There are two options when you want to move your domain away from Yola:

Option 1: You can edit your DNS settings so that your domain points to your new provider.

Option 2: You can transfer it to another domain registrar.

To edit your DNS settings you can use this tutorial

To transfer your domain away form Yola you can see our tutorial here: Tutorial

I hope this helps.
