There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can 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 sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and develop it.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes a number of simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the site visitors should be redirected to. For more advanced 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, in the event you don't require it anymore.
