Website links for new domain



I'm trying my best here, but I'm new to all this!


So.  I have my website and a GoDaddy domain.  I have forwarding setup.  So: redirects to


That's fine.  That part works.


Now what I want to do is have links from my new domain forward/redirect to my website.


redirect/forward to


I can't work out how to do this.  It seems to me I need to have a domain for every possible link.  Surely that's not the case!?!?!?


Appreciate your help in advance.

Re: Website links for new domain

Hi Yabbie,


So on the index page you have for


Depending on what your site is coded in you need to add in code that will automatically redirect the visitor to:


You could create an index.html file in the folder directory for 'myLink' like this:


<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; URL=">
<meta name="keywords" content="automatic redirection">


Hope this helps.


Re: Website links for new domain

Hi BrookDawg,


Thank you for your reply.  Perhaps I can give you more information.


We are a sporting club that has a website hosted for us by our governing organisation.  We can't modify this site.  The site is:


We have a GoDaddy domain we purchased:


Through the GoDaddy management portal, we can forward to

That part works fine.


Where the problem is, is we have a sponsors page (for example) with a big ugly link:|46245w


I want to be able to have forward to the above link (and so on).


Is this possible to achieve?


Thank you again for your help!

Re: Website links for new domain

Hey again Yabbie,


No worries.


Only way I see around this at the minute is setting up a 301 redirect.


To do go to your hosting account you have for and add a 301 redirect to the .htaccess file.


Like so:


Redirect 301 /sponsorship|46245w


The above means if anyone goes to they'll get redirected to that big ugly url.


Hope this helps


Re: Website links for new domain

Hi BrookDawg,


Thank you for your patience.


I have a 301 redirect now, for my GoDaddy domain ( to redirect to


I can only have one 301 for my domain.  I can't work out how to edit my .htaccess file - we don't host, we only 'use' the website and there is no way to edit any .htaccess file on the GoDaddy portal (that I can see).


I don't know how to do the solution you offered, but your solution is exactly what I want!


Appreciate your continued help!

Re: Website links for new domain

Hey again,


No problem at all.


I understand you don't have access to, how ever just purchase a shared linux hosting plan, for example.. the starter or economy linux hosting with GoDaddy, as once you do this and attach your domain, you'll be able to create a .htaccess file and add your re-directs.


Hope this helps
