The best way to describe this service is that it’s just like a postal redirection, but for the Internet. Send a letter to one address, and it arrives at another, while the sender doesn’t know the final destination.
The Domain Manager service gives you the ability to point your chosen domain name to another Web address. It can also leave your domain name in the Web browser so the underlying address is hidden. The is called a “masked or cloaked URL”.
Customers looking for www.yourName.com.au are instantly redirected to:
however your customers will not see this long ISP web address. This service is essential for businesses using a free Web site at their ISP, since these typically have long and unwieldy Web addresses.
It’s also great if you are often in the habit of changing Internet Service Providers, where your domain name and email solution will not be effected. Having a personalised Web address, which remains in the Web browser, gives your site the appearance of a professionally hosted site.
Point your Domain Name to any website or web page. Suits entry level business who can utilise free web space with their Internet Service Provider. Hide the URL of the web page you redirect to. Makes free hosting look professional.
