There are a lot of ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding 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 can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have two similar Internet sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a shared website hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The process takes a few simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the website visitors have to be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create can be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you do not require it anymore.
