There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could 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 address, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. When you have 2 identical websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other site so as to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.

If you host your websites with our company and you have a shared web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes a number of basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You will only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors have to be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you set up can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.

All of these options may be altered whenever you want as well as the URL, so you will not need to set up a new redirection if you want to modify something. However, if you no longer want a given domain or subdomain to be redirected, you'll be able to delete the redirection effortlessly.
