There are a lot of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on 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 visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The task takes a few easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the site visitors have to be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you don't require it anymore.
