There are a lot of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. In case you have two similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes several simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors have to be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not require it anymore.
