Forwarding with masking ^

This is a great feature that allows you to not only forward the domain but mask it as well so for example if you are using godaddy and lets say wix for example you can forward it and you can also pick the name to your liking without seeing the forward redirect url that you do not want to see. I think this godaddy feature is a good one for anyone that is trying to do this.

Re: Forwarding with masking ^

Masking can cause problems, forwarding should not.

 

These options can only be used if the domain is set to the default nameservers:

Re: Forwarding with masking ^

Masking is actually not the best, it should be avoided if possible.  Ideally you would want to point the domain to the website in the DNS.

Re: Forwarding with masking ^

Is it possible to forward to Wix servers and hide the URL? I purchase a godaddy domain that I want to forward to a page I created on my Wix website. I tried forward with masking and it disabled my mobile view
