There are various ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can forward the site visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with clients or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the website visitors to the other website so that you can prevent losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

If you host your sites with our company and you have a website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The task takes just a few simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will only have to choose a domain name 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 input the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL easily. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by including certain content to it, we will give you a user-friendly tool where you will only need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users may also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is redirected to, can be changed with a couple of clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you could delete it just as fast.
