There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you may forward the traffic to the other website to avoid losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first website and improve it.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a shared web hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes a few easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain via 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 to which the website visitors must be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in the event you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very convenient tool that'll offer you an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domain names to another URL.

Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be enabled in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a variety of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a specific folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings whenever you want, and also to delete an existing redirection from the same section in which you have created it in the first place.
