Good day, 

I trust you are well, 

To set up a redirect:

1: Logon to the Cpanel. Click on the Redirects button on the home page.

2: Enter the address of the web page to redirect in the first field.

3: Enter the redirection address in the second field.

4: Choose one of the following options in the drop-down list:

4.a: Temporary - This tells Internet traffic agents (browsers, search engines, etc.) that this is only a temporary redirection, and that they should return to this initial location again in the future for the same page.

4.b: Permanent - This tells the Internet traffic agents to go to the redirection address in the future, as the old address will never be used again.

5: Click on the Add button.

Hi there!

 

The process of redirecting a domain is referred to as domain pointing.

Firstly, you will need to sign up for domain pointing online (R19 per month) by clicking the link: https://www.afrihost.com/site/product/domain_pointing

 

Once you have successfully signed up a domain pointing package, you can now point your domain. Please see the below link on how to point your domain: https://help.afrihost.com/topic/domains-and-hosting/how-to-point-a-domain

 

Hope this helps! Have a great day and stay safe :)
