There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means basically is that you can still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you may set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has numerous practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you may forward the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are making contact with customers or partners. In case you have 2 identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you could redirect the traffic to the other website in order to prevent losing potential customers, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first website and improve it.

Our system shall do the rest and the redirection shall be active within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may select a variety of more advanced options too, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
