This services forwards domains using DNS only with HTTP(s) Redirects.
It's 100% free and open source so you can see it's free of tracking or if you want to fork this service to your own server.
- Forward non-www to www or vice-versa
- Forward old domains to new domains
- Forward typo domains to correct domains
Why use this service?
- No registration required
- No hosting required
- No coding required
- No user tracking
- Completely free
- Open source
How it is possible?
- Point your domain to us using CNAME or A records
- Tell us where to forward using TXT records
- We handle HTTPS certificates for you
Is it really free?
Forwarding domains should be easy to set up. I use this myself for domcloud.co.
How can I check redirects will work?
This service uses Google's Public DNS Resolver. Once first accessed, values will be cached for a day.
Why does it load slowly?
It is only being slow the first time because it has to sign HTTPS certificates.
How about IPv6?
IPv6 record is added in
r.forwarddomain.net so subdomain redirects will simply work with IPv6. We don't guarantee that its IPv6 address will be persistent though. See #2 for apex domains setup.
How about custom HTTP status code?
HTTP status can be customized using
http-status= option. By default it's 301, which is a permanent redirection. You can set it to 302 for a temporary redirection. This matters for search engines.
What records do we keep?
We only keep caches of DNS records and HTTPS certificates. This also means we can see how many users and what domains are using our service from this cache, but that's all. We don't keep log traffic nor any visitor data anywhere on our server.
Can you guarantee the uptime?
We keep this service available at best. But as this is a free service, there's no guarantee. You can check our status page 🚦 if you wanted to.
