How difficult is it when you buy a new domain name to have it transfer to another site? Example I want "www.HiIlikeWorldofWarcraft.net" but I want it to redirect to "www.gamesarefunallthetime.com/games/wow.php."

How would I do something like this?

Most hosts allow a redirect on a domain name. Check with whoever you buy your domains off and see if they provide this service.

If they do it would involve logging into your account and inputting where you want the domain to point to.

I know GoDaddy.com provide this service as standard with their domains.

If your domain registrar doesn't provide it (although most do) then if you have it hosted with a cPanel account you should be able to use the forwarding option in cPanel.
