There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name 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 can create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.

If you host your sites with our company and you have a website hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a few easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the website 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 redirection you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.
