There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two identical websites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a web hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the website visitors should be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.
