There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. When you have two identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other site to avoid losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.

If you host your sites with our company and you have a cloud hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes a number of basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the site visitors should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not require it anymore.
