If you do it through forumotion they will sort out the redirection for you

If you buy it through a 3rd party like 123reg then you have to set up the DNS records yourself, for example you would need the @ A to point at an IP, and then the www CNAME to point at your original forumotion address

(that is assuming you wanted to use a domain email, you wouldnt need the first bit otherwise)
