There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you could still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of function has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain, you may redirect the visitors, but the e-mails with the old one will still be active in case you are getting in touch with customers or partners. When you have 2 very similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other site so that you can avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
We provide a convenient and extremely simple-to-use tool for creating a URL forwarding, so if you have a cloud website hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if required. Any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account could be forwarded, so you'll only have to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the primary folder or a subfolder will be redirected and to type the new Internet address, no matter whether it's pointing to a different Internet in your account or to a website on a remote web server. The forwarding will be enabled almost immediately. If you are more skillful, you'll have a number of advanced options to choose from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and so forth. All redirections will be listed in the exact same section, so when you do not require a specific one anymore, you may cancel it with a mouse click.
