I have a long list of domains that are listed with Melbourne IT.
I would like to forward these domains to a hosted website that is live, however the option is not available within the control panel.  I can change the name servers, but I wondered if I made all the domains have the same name servers, would this cause problems.
What am I missing here.  There is information I need regarding domains that I am not clear on.
You can buy domains - not problem cheap.
But do you have to pay more to enable domain forwarding (i know you can add it to the header of a site , but there is not web hosting with these domains), so giving them all the same name servers point to the one live site seems like the only option, but I think this is a problem with google.
Could someone help me understand here.
Do you have to buy some minimal hosting with a domain to allow domain forwarding, as buying complete hosting and then simply adding a forward in the header seems like overkill?

I hope someone can help me understand?
Thank you,
