There are many ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain 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 set up e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you can forward the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two identical sites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and work on it.

Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be active in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a number of more advanced options too, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
