How do I redirect one domain to another domain name?

Domain name redirections on the DNS level are possible only by using CNAME records. Though in this case it is possible to redirect only subdomains. 

For more information on how to set CNAME records for your account please check this link.

The other option, provided you have hosting accounts for both domains, is to make the redirect using files. More information on how to do this can be found in these two articles:

If you are having problems using redirects at your current host, you can sign up for our cPanel hosting package. SiteGround's support team will happily assist you with any domain redirects you request.

    Hi guys, how can I redirect my old site all all the pages from www.sarahjaynepotter.wordpress.com to my new site www.sarahjaynepotter.com?

      Hello Sarah,

      I believe that your remote host includes a Site Redirect upgrade which you can use to redirect your old URL to the new one that is hosted here.
      It is recommended that you contact your old host so that they can confirm if it will be possible to execute an URL redirect in more conventional manner.
