Before we're getting started, it's important to know you must own or have access to the domain you are trying to redirect. See more here.
Step 1: Create a redirect.pizza account
Get started today by creating an account: https://redirect.pizza/register.
Step 2: Add your domain to redirect.pizza
Add your domain you wish to redirect. For our example, we have a domain with GoDaddy 'redirect-pizza-example.xyz'. Add the domain to the 'Source URL' field. We recommend adding www & the apex (non-www).
You see the DNS spinning, and the detected & required values are different.
Step 3: Making the DNS change
This differs per domain. The DNS change must be made with the domain registrant or DNS provider. They have an option to change the DNS zone for that domain. For more help per provider, it's best to contact the domain provider and share the necessary DNS changes. Most of the time, they are happy to help you make that change!
Using GoDaddy? See our step-by-step explanation: GoDaddy: Forwarding with HTTPS support
Unsure which provider your domain is under? See What are these DNS changes?
Step 4: Waiting
Changed the DNS? Awesome! You can see the DNS propogation progress with a site like WhatsMyDNS. For our example, you can see for instance that the DNS change has been fully propogated: https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/redirect-pizza-example.xyz
When it's fully propogated (note: this can take up to 24 hours), redirect.pizza should detect that and show a green checkmark next to the DNS records.
Step 5: Done!
Green checkmark is shown? Then all is set-up, and traffic is flowing through redirect.pizza!
