Namescheap and DNS settings

I started using Namescheap lately as an alternative to GoDaddy.  Namescheap is awesome for how clean and straight forward it is.  I do pose a warning though:  their documentation for the DNS settings is somewhat misleading and confusing, and their default settings are probably not what you want.

The Options:
URL Redirect (default) – URL Frame Forwarding – A-address –  URL Redirect – 301

My advice:  If you want this domain to have the browser redirect to another domain, use URL Redirect.  You will notice in the address bar that the original domain you entered will change to the redirected domain.  If you are using the domain name as your primary, then use the A – address option.
