There are a lot of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has numerous practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could forward the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active if you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other Internet site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.

This process takes a number of simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will only have to select a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the website visitors should be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
