There are a lot of ways to forward website visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you can still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you may create e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you could forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one shall still be active if you are getting in touch with customers or partners. If you have two identical websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the traffic to the other website so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first website and work on it.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The procedure takes just a few basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will simply need to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the site visitors must be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, when you do not require it anymore.

Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more advanced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, can be altered with just a few clicks at any time. If you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as quickly.
