There are many ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 identical Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other website so as to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.

With only several clicks, you can easily set up a new redirection even if you have never used a website hosting account before, since our tool is really intuitive. For a standard forwarding, you will just need to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to enter the new URL, and then to save the modification. The more advanced users can alter other options too - the forwarding type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection shall be activated (the main domain folder or a specific subfolder). Any forwarding that you have created can be deleted with a mouse click at any time.
