How is forwarding done?


Hello.

I'm wondering how dns hosting companies do forwarding, port redirection, and masking for domain names?

Any body knows how to do this?

Start with: man iptables.

I'm not actually refering on how to do it with iptables. I know that part.

What I mean is:
You know when you register a domain name, for example with godaddy.com, that you are allowed to redirect it to another page.

mydomain.com forward it to myotherdomain.com also you can forward mydomain.com to myotherdomain.com:8080. Also do masking.

How is this done? Is it done with the nameserver record or is there another trick?
