There are a number of ways to forward site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is commonly preferred. 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 may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This sort of feature has many practical uses - if you want to switch your domain, you could redirect the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active whenever you are communicating with clients or partners. In case you have 2 similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you may redirect the visitors to the other Internet site to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.

The task takes a number of basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll simply have to select a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the traffic have to be redirected to.
