There are many ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a cloud website hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The process takes a number of basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you do not require it anymore.
