There are various ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain name, you can redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have 2 similar websites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could forward the website visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first site and improve it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the website visitors must be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, when you don't need it anymore.

Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more experienced users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, plus the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. If you no longer require a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
