Updating Your Domain Name's IP Address for Forwarding

When you set up domain name forwarding, we can automatically update the domain name's IP address to use our forwarding IP address. If the automatic update doesn't occur, you must update the address manually so our domain name forwarding services work correctly.

For information about forwarding your domain name, see Manually Forwarding or Masking Your Domain Name .

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Next to Domains, click Manage.

Which procedure you'll use depends on the number of domains in your account:
