Domain forwarding

Amanda Watson
Last Modified: 2018-02-06
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,

there are some providers who gives free domain forwarding,you can buy domain in godaddy for example, in that you can forward the domain free of cost.
Another Option is buy domain in any provider and change the name server to point to cloudflare and in cloudflare you can change the dns to forward to another domain.

How much would it cost to buy cloudflare and make it work so that dns is forwarding to another domain.
Can you do it AWS amazon?
