Godaddy site redirects

I often forget my profile addresses on the various online communities of which I am part. In order to consolidate my profiles and remember them more easily, I started creating redirected links on a minor domain I own. I think of this as my own personal tinyurl service. Following is an example of how to do this with a domain managed with godaddy.
  1. Open your hosting Control Center
  2. Scroll down, and open the "content" section
  3. Click "Site Redirects"
  4. Click "New redirect"
  5. Complete the Domain and Path for the location you wish people to use to get to your content. For example, you can set up to redirect people from that url to the hosted location of your resume at another address.
  6. Complete the Domain and Path for the destination address.
A specific example:

I set up to redirect to my Linkedin profile at
