What is URL forwarding and how does it work?

URL Forwarding (sometimes known as URL Redirection) is a technique which can be used to redirect a domain to another URL which is either too long or too hard to remember for a web user.

When you set up the URL forwarding option for a domain in Namecheap, it redirects anyone who visits your website to the proper location of your web server, in order to access the web site files.

You can check the URL forwarding setup instruction in this article.
