- It is not relevant whether you specify the target URL with or without a prefixed "http://" or if the destination is reachable or not. The query is redirected to the target URL exactly as you specify it.

- The syntax is only checked logically. The functionality of the target URL is not checked. Please check the functionality of the target URL beforehand if nececcary by calling it in the browser.

- Please note that changes must first be published in the DNS. This can result in a newly configured URL forwarding that only becomes effective after eitght hours.

- It can happen that a hidden redirection in the browser only shows an empty white page. This usually happens, if the target server does not accept In Frame forwarding. In this case, you must change the forwarding mode to 301.
