There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first Internet site and work on it.

When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a cloud hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The task takes a number of easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the website visitors have to be forwarded to. For more experienced 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 same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
