There are a number of ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection 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 could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could redirect the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar Internet sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the site visitors to the other Internet site to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first website and improve it.

When you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud web hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. This process takes a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the website visitors must be redirected to.
