Q:  I already have a Web address, why do I need Web forwarding with my new domain name? Return to Top

A:    Acquiring your unique domain name is the first step in your Internet marketing plan. With Web forwarding, you are able to further brand your domain name making it easy for everyone to find you on the Web.

When you signed up with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) for access to the Internet, you may have received a basic Web page - typically, a long and difficult to remember name, one that really doesn't help you market or brand your name, something like http://www.propertycities.com/sanfrancisco/345/yourname.html Although that Web address will direct people to your page, it doesn't have to be the address you put on your business cards and your stationery. Wouldn't a shorter and more personalized address -- http://YourName.com -- look and feel better? Web forwarding lets you use your new domain as your permanent Web address. What we do behind the scenes is direct Web users to the Web site you choose.

Combined with eMail forwarding, web forwarding will make it easy for clients and prospects to send your eMail and view your Web site. Now you can safely print signs, cards and stationary knowing that later changes in eMail and web accounts will not affect the permanent address you use.



Q: How does this Web forwarding work? Return to Top

A:    When a Web user types in your permanent Web address, our domain name servers will redirect the user to the Web address you gave us in Step 4 below. There's nothing else for you to do.


Q: I'm a New Customer. How do I order the Web forwarding service? Return to Top

A:    First, you have to become an Existing Customer. You can do that by going to our Registration Page and ordering your domain. If you previously registered your domain with another Registrar, you can go to the Transfer Page and change the Registrar to our service where you will have greater control of your domain. Alternatively, you can ask your Registrar to change the DNS domain host servers to our servers


Q: I'm an Existing Customer. How do I order the Web forwarding service? Return to Top

A:   
  • Step 1 - Click on the "Web Products" button on the left-hand side at http://InternetCrusade.com.
  • Step 2 - Click "Web Forwarding" on the next screen, then click "Order Now!".
  • Step 3 - Enter one of your registered domain names or your e-mail address in the "Access:" field.
  • Step 4 - The next page will show a list of your domains. Log in to the domain you want to forward using the Registration Key you were given at the time you originally ordered the domain.
  • Step 5 - The next page will allow you to enter your URL in the "Point To" field near the bottom of the page to the right of the words "(Domain Level)". You may also point a 3rd-level domain to a URL on this same page.
  • Step 6 - Don't forget to click the "Update Old DNS" button to submit your change, or the "Update Domain" button to submit your 3rd-level order.


Q: How does Third Level Forwarding differ from Web Forwarding? Return to Top

A:    Third level forwarding is similar to Web forwarding except that the forwarding address adds another level to the domain name. Best to use an example to illustrate the power of this method. Let's say you purchase a web application that allows you to post photo show slides of your local community, properties, or products. Typically, you would receive a long, UGLY Web address, something like http://www.grandtours.com/photos/sandiego?4566/archive.yourname.html With third level forwarding, you can create a Web address that utilizes your domain brand and makes it easy for Web users to type in your address, something like http://Community.YourName.com


Q: How do I order Third Level Forwarding? Return to Top

A:    Follow the same procedures as outlined above in the 6 Steps for Web Forwarding.
