There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the traffic, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.

When you host your sites 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 visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes a number of basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the traffic must be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up can be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not require it anymore.
