Domain names - Web Forwarding Service


Most Internet service providers offer disk space, often called "personal space" to host your website. But it is sometimes impossible or for a fee to manage the DNS directly with these isp.

The web forwarding service allows you to point your domain name to this webspace. When a user will type your domain name in the browser's address bar, our servers redirect him where your website is hosted. For example, http://myspace.myisp.fr or http://myaccount.free.fr


FranceDNS forwarding service

FranceDNS you can forward your subdomain to the URL of your choice with 3 forwarding modes:


  • Direct forwarding
    The Internet user will be redirected to the URL of your choice, but the initial domain name in the browser's address bar will be replaced by the target address.

    For experts, this mode can be set in permanent redirect (HTTP code 301) or temporary (HTTP code 302) to be consistent with the RFC and search engines.

  • Masked forwarding
    The Internet user will be redirected to the URL of your choice but the initial domain name will stay in the browser's address bar. The URL's contents will then be displayed for the domain name.

    For experts, this mode can be set with a custom title or with an auto recovery of metatags. The masked forwarding is built on html frames.

  • IP forwarding
    All HTTP requests will be redirected to the IP of your choice. This means that you can host your domain name on your own server. You are then in charge of managing the HTTP server and distributing the pages to Internet users.
