    Do it in administration panel ;)

    or you could use simple redirect. Upload this /html file to your host and it will redirect to new domain

    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://example.com/" />
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
    </html>

    or php if you preffer )

    Do you use VPS, Nginx or Appache? There are many ways to redirect an user to a specific page or domain.

    best to do with htaccess, its more flexible.
    This topic comes up so often though, should have a sticky for it.

    What David said, use .htaccess file.
    A simple google search would solve the technical aspect for you.

    Yes I saw It redirects only bnbnn.com to new domain but it doesn't redirect www.bnbnn.com to new domain .So,I am losing 90% of traffic since my blogspot site is set up with www.bnbnn.com

    Do you have some hosting you could point your domain to? If so then just drop this into an htaccess file:
    Code:
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
      RewriteEngine On
      RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^olddomain.com$ [OR]
      RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.olddomain.com$
      RewriteRule (.*)$ http://www.newdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    </IfModule>
    
    I'm surprise that GoDaddy's redirect doesn't push all subdomain requests to the new url.

    This is why I don't use GoDaddy.
    I think it can be done through DNS Records though, but I'm too lazy to check :)

    Godaddy have this option. Launch the domain from the godaddy account. Click on 'DNS Zone File'. There you have to add the non 'w' domain format to 'w' format first. So add a cname to do it.
