14. Domain root (𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹) 

                       If you want your domain to automatically redirect when someone types it into the browser's address bar, you can enter the redirect information in the 'domain root' section.

                       For example, if you enter 'veshort.com' in the domain root section and someone types in your domain name directly, such as 'vastly.in', the user will be redirected to 'veshort.com'.

15. Domain 404 (𝗼𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹)

                          If you want your domain to automatically redirect to a different page when a short URL is not found, you can enter the redirect information in the 'domain 404' section.

                          For example, if you set up 'veshort.com' in the 'domain 404' section and create a custom domain link, such as 'vastly.in/bio', when someone types in a non-existing link, such as  'vastly.in/bi', they will be redirected to 'veshort.com'.

16. Click "Add Domain"
