How To: Forward / Redirect Naked Domain Purchased from eNom to WWW

In this post, we talked about forwarding a naked domain bought from GoDaddy. What about if your registrar is eNom?

In this case, you can configure your naked domain to be forwarded to your mapped CNAME (subdomain) through the following steps:

1. Login to your Google Apps Control Panel at http://www.google.com/a/yoursite.com. Let's look at kurizutin.com as a sample.
2. Select Domain Settings > Domain Names > Advanced DNS
3. Get the provided username and password for your eNom DNS control panel.
