There are many ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding 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 can create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have 2 similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the visitors to the other website to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administration area for the first website and develop it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud 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 a different web address. The task takes just a few basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the website visitors should be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up may be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.
