There are various ways to redirect visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly recommended. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding is feasible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may 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 decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are making contact with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can redirect the website visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.

This process takes several simple steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will only have to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the traffic should be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, if you do not require it anymore.
