There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create 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 forward the traffic, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 identical Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes just a few basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll simply need to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the traffic must be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in the event you don't need it anymore.
