Question about Domain Forwarding

My client has 5 domains of a non-profit organization and I volunteered to host one of them.  Now she would like the remaining 4 to land on the one I am hosting.  My question is: Do I have to add all those 4 on my cPanel and redirect them at my end or I can simply forward them from inside GoDaddy.  I tried to follow instructions contained at https://www.godaddy.com/help/forward-a-domain-12123, but that page says: "On the Domains Settings page, next to your domain, click Use My Domain.".  I couldn't find the "Use My Domain" option for any of the 4 domains and I'm confused.

Hello there,

They could put something like the code below into their .htaccess files... this way you do not have to deal with the other domains .... of course editing them to the site they want everything to go too . Just a idea.

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^OLDDOMAIN\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://NEWDOMAIN.com [R=301,L]
