I need to do a redirect...a friend just printed 50 magazines with a made up email address printed on it instead of my real address. So I bought the made up domain name and created a bogus website and am trying to redirect it to my real one...it's not working.
I am trying to use a meta command on the index page of  the bogus website (Appleartsstudio.com) to redirect to the other site.  That didn't work.
 I also went to "Manage Sites" in the editor and hit the "Redirects" button and entered the pertinent info.  Is that just for redirects to pages within the website or does it work for going to other websites?  When someone enters "AppleArtsStudio.com"  I want it to go to "AppleStudiosFineArt.com/daphna-russell".  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I have adjusted it so when someone types in "appleartsstudio.com" it should redirect to "AppleStudiosFineArt.com/daphna-russell". We just want to allow some time for processing and propogation.

We can create a subdomain redirect, if you visit your Domains page, you  can see underneath "appleartsstudio.com" has a subdomain going to AppleStudiosFineArt.com/daphna-russell. This allows us to create a redirect.

I guess I need to read up on subdomains in my spare time.  Thanks again

This is just an old trick we can use with Homestead, it may not exactly work with different hosts.
