There are a lot of ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible 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 lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 identical Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud web hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes just a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to select a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors should be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not need it anymore.
