There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain address, you may forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have two similar Internet sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the visitors to the other Internet site so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first site and develop it.

When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a cloud web hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes several simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the traffic should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you set up could be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, when you do not need it anymore.
