You have to choose a good domain name related to your name or business in order to forward to your artistwebsites.com site. Each domain registrar has their own control panel and they look different. I will show you how to use 1and1.com control panel to forward your domain to your site.
1) Log in to your domain registrars control panel
2) Select your domain name from control panel under domains and web spaces (for 1and1 only)
3) Select the domain destination and enter your artstwebsites web address (example http://gallery.artistwebsites.com )
4) Choose the method of redirection. There are two methods of redirection, frame redirect (visitors see your domain name in their browser bar) and http redirect (simple redirection to your artiswebsites address. Example: peekaboom.com )) and save it.
For frame redirect you have to enter your site title, key words and a meta tag description
