There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have 2 similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a hosting package deal, you shall 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. The procedure takes several easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors have to be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
