There are a number of ways to redirect traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is feasible only if the domain name 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 set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has lots of practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you may redirect the traffic, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in case you are making contact with clients or partners. In case you have two similar sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the visitors to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and improve it.

Any domain or subdomain hosted within the account may be redirected, so you will just need to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to choose if the main folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to enter the new web address, no matter if it's pointing to a different Internet in your account or to a website on a remote server. The redirection will be enabled almost instantaneously. If you are more knowledgeable, you'll have a range of advanced options to pick from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All of the redirections shall be listed in the exact same section, so whenever you do not require a certain one anymore, you may cancel it with a click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including specific content to it, we will give you a user-friendly tool where you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users can also make use of a couple of other customizable options, including the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with several clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
