If you want to redirect your domain name to a web page that is hosted on another site, such as your Facebook page, here are the steps to do it.

1. Login to your account at https://my.domainnamesanity.com/ and click on the area that says "Domains" at the top of the Client Area

2. Locate the domain in the list of domains in your account and click anywhere in the row (apart from on the domain name itself) on the domain name that you wish to configure.

3. On the page that appears, click the "DNS Management" option in the sidebar and continue to step 6. If DNS Management doesn't appear, follow steps 4 and 5 to add it to your domain.

To add the URL redirect record, complete the following 3 steps so that your screen looks the same as the one above.
1. Choose "URL Redirect" for the Record Type.
2. Type "http" or "https" in the first box (Host Name), depending on what is at the start of the URL that you want to redirect. For my example, I wanted to point my domain at https://facebook.com/example, so I used "https"
3. Type (or copy/paste) the rest of the address after the http:// or https:// into the box marked Address - for example, facebook.com/example.

Then, click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page.

The changes should be live on your domain within 15 minutes. If you have any problems, please contact our support team for assistance.
