There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can 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 feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
When you host your websites with our company and you have a web hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The task takes just a few simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors have to be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in the event you don't need it anymore.
