There are various ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active if you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two very similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other Internet site so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a shared website hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. This process takes a number of basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the website visitors should 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 forwarding that you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.
