Right. I have another question on this please. I'm sorry I deleted the original post.

So I have my domain with Blacknight. I have hosted DNS using BN nameserves. I have MX records setup to Google Apps (Workspace) for my email. That's all working fine.

I don't want a website but obviously people are going to go to www.mydomain.com at times when I give it out as my email address. I'd be happy with a blank holding page or redirect to google or another domain. The problem I seem to face is that BN seems to show a holding page full of ads by default (I know most providers do this).

Is there a way to have a blank / neutral hosting page with the hosted DNS, or is it required to buy hosting?

Thanks

You can have DNS records for email and use the URL forwarding to point somewhere else

Hi Michele

Is there a page in the support knowledgebase which explains how to use URL forwarding please?

Thanks

Thanks. I assumed the web hosting reference with hosted domains brought me through a shopping cart. Didn't realise I could do this. Thanks for your help.
