How to use your existing website name / URL with your MassageBook website

If you have an existing website address or URL that you want to point to your MassageBook website, you can make this change within your current website hosting platform. A domain forward simply tells Google and other search engines that the website address has changed, and all traffic should be routed to the new address. This allows you to keep your existing website address that you may have previously published on business cards, marketing material, etc. while still driving clients to book online via your newly designed MassageBook website. 

When forwarding your domain, it is very important that you enter the correct MassageBook website address for promoting your website. Using the correct website address ensures that new clients coming to your site are not considered MassageBook referrals. 

You can locate it by navigating to your:  Business tab > SetupBusiness Details section. Scroll down until your see your MassageBook website address. It looks like this: https://www.massagebook.com/biz/yourbusinessname

Be sure to include the https and biz portions of the URL when forwarding your domain. 

We've included some steps from popular web hosting services, but we strongly recommend that you contact the Help Center for your hosting provider should you need assistance with forwarding your domain. They will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information in the event their publicly available information has changed.
