Step 5
To change the destination, select Redirect (A) and Enter the URL into the Redirect destination text box (B). Then select HTTP redirect (C) as the type.

Click the Save button when you are finished.

Please note:
Frame redirect allows you to mask the domain you are forwarding to and allows you to enter a title and meta keywords and descriptions. This way, if you have a Frame Redirect for domain.com to google.com, when someone tries to view domain.com, the URL will still say domain.com, but the page that loads will be the Google page.
