There are various ways to forward visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often recommended. In contrast to parking a domain name, a URL forwarding 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 in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of function has many practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain, you can forward the site visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active whenever you are getting in touch with clients or partners. When you have 2 identical sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you can forward the site visitors to the other website to prevent losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the administration area for the first site and work on it.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server packages include a very useful tool which will supply you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will allow you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be active within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you can choose a number of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings anytime, and to delete an active redirection from the same section where you have created it initially.
