There are many ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the website visitors to the other site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and work on it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a cloud hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The process takes a few easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the website visitors must be forwarded 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 which you create could be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
