There are various ways to redirect website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is feasible 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 create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a few basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you can create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the site visitors must be redirected 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 create may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not require it anymore.

If you're experienced, you can even choose if the type of the redirection should be permanent or temporary and if the method must be direct or match. All of these options can be altered at any time as well as the URL, so you won't need to create a new redirection if you want to change something. However, if you no longer need a given domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection effortlessly.
