I found the domain name I want available for a minimal price on GoDaddy
So I suppose I have to redirect it to my website here on Yola, (which does not have a name yet)
which is a better option for the search engines:

path forwarding or mask url option? I just read a bit on each

And does the redirecting of the url to a free site affect negatively the ranking,?
meaning: do the SE even see redirected sites names? Or not?
And do they like them or do they consider them a spam?

Ia m totally a beginner in this subject, can someone please help?
Thanks a lot

Hi Anna,

Great question! This is actually something that is relatively easy to do. If you edit the A Records of your domain with GoDaddy to point towards our ip address you can then publish your domain to your site. This won't negatively affect any ranking with the search engines. Here is a link to a tutorial which will step you through this: Configuring your GoDaddy domain.

Hope this helps!
