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

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

When you host your sites with our company and you have a cloud hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The procedure takes a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the visitors must be sent 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 that you create can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.

Each of these options may be changed at any time as well as the URL, so you shall not need to set up a new redirection if you would like to modify something. Needless to say, if you no longer need a particular domain or subdomain to be forwarded, you could delete the redirection without difficulty.
