There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has several practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. In case you have two identical websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the site visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a cloud hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes a few easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the site visitors should be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, if you do not require it anymore.
