Update my domain's IP Address for forwarding

When you set up domain name forwarding, we can automatically update the domain name's IP address to use our forwarding IP address. If the automatic update doesn't occur, you must update the address manually so our domain name forwarding services work correctly.

For information about forwarding your domain name, see Manually forward or mask your domain.
