There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two identical sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first Internet site and develop it.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites with our company and you have a shared hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The procedure takes a few basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will only need to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors have to be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create could be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server package deal we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding particular content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool where you will simply have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, and the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with several mouse clicks anytime. When you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
