There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name 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 set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain address 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 website visitors have to be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create may be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.
