There are various ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you can redirect the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have two very similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first site and improve it.

If you host your websites with us and you have a shared 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 an alternative Internet address. This process takes a number of simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you could create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the 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 exact same section of the CP, if you don't need it anymore.
