There are various ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you could create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with customers or partners. If you have 2 very similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.

With just a couple of clicks, you are able to set up a new redirection even if you haven't used a website hosting account before, due to the fact that our tool is incredibly intuitive. For a standard forwarding, you will only need to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down menu, to enter the new URL, and then to save the change. The more proficient users can edit other options as well - the redirection type (permanent/temporary), the method (direct/match) and the folder where this redirection will be active (the main domain folder or a certain subfolder). Any redirection that you've set up could be deleted with only a click whenever you want.
