4a/. Set the Destination box to "Forward Your Domain".
4b/. Set your forwarding Destination to "http://www.example.com/", please note you must have http://, and you must have the www. part, so if your domain is sallysboutique.com, then you should enter "http://www.sallysboutique.com/" into the box.
