After you registered/transferred a domain, usually there is no content connected. We offer various alternatives to forward a domain. It is decisive for choosing the correct alternative, what requirements and what purpose your domain has.
Forwarding to a IP adress (A/AAAA record)
This is necessary if you have rent Webspace or a hosting server with another provider and want to point to their IP.
You can find information about how to set up forwarding to a IP address here.
Forward to a hostname to a hostname with CNAME
This is necessary if your Webspace provider asked you to set a CNAME record. CNAME records can only be set for subdomains. This is not possible for Wildcard.
You can find information about how to set up forwarding by CNAME here.
Forwarding to an exiting internet address
This is necessary if your domain name should link to an already existing internet address.

Forwarding through external Nameserver
This is necessary if your Webspace provider has asked you to set up their Nameservers. The domain will be forwarded by the third-party Nameservers. All settings have to be made there.
