  • So question is, is what is domain forwarding?

  • So domain forwarding is a great service you can use from your D.

  • N s service provider that allows you to forward your domain name that you purchase from them to another u R l.

  • This is an absolutely great tool to use in the modern world, especially with so many companies using other people's platforms.

  • This allows you to have your own domain but not have to run your own Web server so it understand how D N s normally works.

  • As faras websites go normally, you purchase your domain name failed normal dot com geek sexy news dot com geek field notes dot com So on and so forth.

  • And then what you do is you point that to a Web servers on Apache Web server or A II s Web server.

  • You then install your your website onto that server, and then whenever anybody goes to your domain name, fail normal dot com.

  • They get routed to your Web server, your Web server that knows what to do with that traffic, and then the person is presented with a website.

  • So that's how people have been doing websites with D.

  • N s for, you know, decades now, and that's the normal way to do it.

  • Well, the question comes, is what happens about in the modern world when you want to use a platforms profile or paid for you as your website.

  • So let's say you go to facebook dot com.

  • You create a place is paid for your business, and you want that to be the website for your business.

  • But you sit there and you look at that horrible name that they gave you.

  • Www dot facebook dot com dup places slash last lish and it just it just looks absolutely horrible.

  • Well, what you can do with domain forwarding is you can go to go Daddy or host Gator or some other D.

  • N s registrar.

  • You can purchase a domain name from them.

  • So again, failed failed normal dot com or geek field notes dot com.

  • And then after you purchase the domain name from them, you go when you look for the option for forwarding the domain.

  • And so all you do is you go, there'll be a little a little box, and essentially you can copy and paste the u R L of where you want your your Web visitors to G O and then when people go to fail, normal dot com or, let's say, the daily blob dot com.

  • Instead of going to your website, they'll get redirected.

  • Tow whatever you are l that you provided in the configuration settings.

  • So right now, if you look at the daily blob dot com, so I own the domain name the daily blob dot com, but I don't want to run a website for the daily blob dot com.

  • So what I've done is I've Purkiss service from pod bean dot com.

  • So pod bean dot com allows me to provide people video podcasts of the two hour shows that I create every day.

  • Ah, and they host all of that.

  • So now instead of me having to set up my own Web server, me having to set up WordPress or whatever else me having to do all those configurations, what I do is I pay Pod Bean a set amount every month, and then what I would have had happened is that the daily blob dot com is now forwarded to the daily blob dot pod bean dot com.

  • And so now it gets redirected that way.

  • So that way I can have a domain name that's very easy to tell people.

  • So if you want to, you want to listen to me to our shows.

  • After I do them, you go to the daily blob dot com.

  • So I get the ease of use of a domain name without having to deal with all the configurations and actually building up a website.

  • This could be very useful right now in the modern world, especially with a lot of people being concerned about platforms and whether or not they will continue to use platforms.

  • Now we see a lot of things nowadays with people worried about being de platform.

  • So they see like Alex Jones, or they see gabbed dot com or they see somebody else.

  • The platform.

  • And so a lot of times when we talk about platforms, we talk about whether or not we trace.

  • We trust platforms that people get the wrong idea.

  • They think, Well, I'm not political, I'm not, you know, right wing or left wing.

  • I'm just I'm just somebody down the middle.

  • I'm just trying to sell pizzas or whatever else you know.

  • I'm not going to get into all that stuff.

  • I'm not worried about the platform, but the big thing to understand here is you may just simply self de platform.

  • Remember, if you're building a business, you're generally not building a business for one or two years.

  • You may be building a business for two or three decades, and so when you get a domain name and you start giving things like you are else to all your customers and all your clients, they may have that information not just for a couple of months, but for a couple of years, or maybe even 10 years.

  • When you hand out business cards, people can't keep business cards for a long time.

  • So what happens?

  • Let's say right now you like Facebook.

  • Facebook is the greatest thing in the world.

  • It's bringing you a lot of customers.

  • You're very happy with Facebook.

  • So you go out there and you plug Facebook books.

  • You are l onto your business card because you have.

  • You want everybody go to Facebook site in order.

  • Find out more about your business.

  • What happens in five years?

  • What happens when the next Facebook comes out, or what happens of Facebook does something incredibly stupid.

  • And you get simply decide.

  • You don't want to use Facebook anymore, Wolf.

  • All of your marketing material.

  • All this information about your company organization has been put out there with the Facebook.

  • You are l.

  • Then when you decide to go overto another platform or you decide to do something else, then you have a big transition cost.

  • Now you have to put out new advertising.

  • Now you have to tell people with the old advertising where the new website is so on and so forth.

  • On the other hand, if you buy a domain name from day one and then you forward it to wherever you want it, forward it to you.

  • Forward.

  • It's a YouTube or you forward it's Facebook or you forward it to Twitter or whatever else.

  • And then after a while, you decide.

  • You know, I don't want to use that platform anymore.

  • I want to use something else.

  • Then all you do is you change one configuration for that domain forwarding, and now everybody gets redirected to that new place.

  • So I look at that now we geek feel notes, so I'm creating this specific type of instructional video now.

  • Ah, and I'm kind of curious to see whether or not it'll work whenever you start a new project.

  • Whenever you start a new project in technology, you hope for the best, and then you see what happens.

  • And so these videos may do very well or they may fail and everybody hates them.

  • Here's the thing.

  • I don't wantto build up a website.

  • I don't wanna have to go through all of the advertising cost and resource consumption of trying to point people to a website with these videos if I don't know if they're gonna work right, because I don't will this work Won't this work?

  • I don't know.

  • What I can dio is I bought the domain name geek field notes and so geek feel notes now redirects to a YouTube channel.

  • I can go along.

  • I can see whether or not people like the videos I can see.

  • What about the videos they like?

  • I can see what I want to change.

  • So in a fort so forth, I can do all of that experimentation on YouTube where I don't have to worry about configurations.

  • I don't have to worry about security.

  • I don't have to worry about a lot of things.

  • And then once I've got enough content once I've got enough traction to know where I'm going.

  • What I want to dio then what I can do is I can build my own WordPress site with my own video back end with everything that goes along with it.

  • And then I simply then point geek field notes now to my new website no longer to YouTube.

  • And now everybody just simply gets redirected.

  • There will be a little bit of confusion.

  • They'll go there, we'll see the videos.

  • But it won't be YouTube.

  • They'll scratch your head will click on the video, the Watcher video and everybody will be happy.

  • And so this is the type of reason why Ah, you want your domain name eso any type of business.

  • Basically, the first thing that you should do in the modern world is if you're going to start a business, you get a domain name.

  • The reason being is one s O that you have some some place for people to go to for a website again, even if it gets to redirect it somewhere else.

  • And plus two, you get your own email address.

  • So Elyot fail normal dot com or Eli Eli, the computer guy dot com.

  • And that looks more professional, especially when you go out there and buy business cards.

  • If you're buying business cards for 40 or $100 this way, you can have a nice domain name on there.

  • You can have a nice email address on there.

  • It makes you look more professional even when you, not you, are not necessarily that professional at that point.

  • And it's a lot easier to close sales.

  • So that's what domain forwarding is.

  • And that's why it's important whether whether your political or not.

  • I know right now you may be sitting there, and you think this is all about politics.

  • It's all about de platform.

  • But it's also It's also about business, right?

  • If you have a local pizza shop, you know Baltimore in Baltimore is best pizza shop.

  • If your point out everybody that Facebook page, what happens in a couple of years when another say or another platform is a better place for your business?

  • If you have, If you already have a domain name, you simply forward it to that new place and then that's all the work you have to dio versus if you, you know, have put out the U R L four Facebook or for whatever else for a number of years.

  • Now there's a huge, painful migration process to get people to know where they should go to next.

  • So that's what domain, domain name forward Innis and why you should care.

So question is, is what is domain forwarding?
