How do I setup Web & Email forwarding for my domain?
Posted by iDAQ Support Admin on 19 July 2005 12:18 PM

To do this you need to order this service through the iDAQ store (this is a free service with all new domain registrations and transfers), the package is called 'Web & Email Forwarding'.

First go to and click the 'Buy' link, this will take you to our secure store and place this package in your shopping cart.  Follow the steps in the store untill you have reached the 'Order Complete' step.

Your Web & Email Forwarding  package should become active almost instantly.  Next you will need to log into your iDAQ control panel to configure where you want to forward your web and email service.

Once inside your iDAQ control panel:

  1. Select the System tab at the top of the page.
  2. Click on 'Select Another System' at the top of the left menu.
  3. Then select your new Web & Email Forwarding subscription from the list.  This will change the System panel to allow you to manage the subscription you have just selected.
  4. Under the 'Hosting' section, select 'Setup'.
  5. Here you can either select frame or standard forwarding, click ok.
  6. Now enter the URL of the forwarding destination, click ok.

Note: It will take up to 10 minutes for the new DNS setting to take effect.

That's your web forwarding setup, now you need to setup the email forwarding:

  1. Click on 'Mail', under the 'Services' section.
  2. Select 'Add New Mail Name'.
  3. Enter the mailing address you require, with password (as this is a redirect service only the password is redundent).
  4. You can now setup a redirect address for mail to that address, select 'Redirect' and enter the address where the mail should go to.

You done.  Try sending a test message to the address you just configured and see if it gets forwarded on to the redirect address.

If you have any trouble setting this up please get in touch with the support team for help.
