Step 6: Mapping Configuration

Select how you wish to link/point the domain. Under "Link To:" dropdown options:

  1. Home Page on one of my websites - is the default set up. This will point the domain to the website's homepage.
  2. A Website Page on one of my websites - can be used when you intend to point a domain to a landing page.
  3. Another Website / Location (301) - when you have multiple domain names, you may use this option to redirect them to the main/primary domain name[1]. You may also use this option to redirect a domain name to any 3rd party web page.

At this point, allow some time for the domain to propagate on the web; normally takes about a few minutes to a few hours, depending on your DNS host.

[1] Using multiple domain names on a single website will now have to be set up via redirect. Search engines now flag these domains as duplicate websites which causes a negative impact on the website's search ranking.

[2] myRealPage provides Secure Certificates for free to all existing website accounts. Once the installation is complete (normally within 6 hours), your website address will be rendered secured (from http to https) on web browsers.
