There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done 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 set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so as to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

The task takes several simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the traffic must be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.
