Redirect means send any domain visiting request to another domain address. In many domain providers, a domain can be redirected for free from the domain management option. But it may not be done in all providers. Then you have to do it from your hosting. If you have a hosting package in any provider, you can redirect your domain to another domain for free from the hosting control panel. But if you don’t have any hosting package and you want to redirect your domain, you can do it for free using Cloudflare.

Then add your domain to Cloudflare that you want to redirect. If you don’t know how to add a domain in Cloudflare, you can follow this guideline: How can I add Cloudflare for my Domain and Hosting?
