This board is support for the forum software. It has nothing to do with domains.
If you want another domain, you will have to handle that though your host.

Again, this has nothing to do with the phpBB software. You will need to contact your host for support in setting up the domain correctly.

phpBB does not redirect domains.
You would have to do that in your hosting somewhere.
