There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active if you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the traffic to the other website in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and improve it.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The process takes a number of easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the site visitors have to 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 which you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, if you do not need it anymore.
