My domain is http://www.seedsandsproutsdaycare.com/ and I would like to forward all traffic  to new domain [https://seedsandsproutschildcare.com/]

I know about redirect pages [https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/how_can_i_automatically_redirect_a_visitor_to_anoth...] but it is not good for SEO. 

GoDaddy has option to forward all traffic from domain name. I am trying to do the same here. 

Thank you

Forwarding is not really good for SEO either, but you can do it by going to the domain tab in your Homestead account and edit the www subdomain. Set it to direct to another URL and add the desired domain in the box. This might take up to 20 minutes.

The best solution for SEO is to point the domain using DNS.

Some web hosts do not allows the pointing of more than one domain. First ask them if that is possible. If it is, then ask them for the records that are required. Once you have those then you can edit the records on your domains tab. I can assist once you have the required information from them.

If they do not allow more than one domain, then you will need to use the sub domain redirect on the domains tab.
