There are a number of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is often favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL forwarding can be done only if the domain in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you could still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. Such a feature has lots of practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain address, you can redirect the visitors, but the emails with the old one will still be active in the event that you are communicating with clients or partners. If you have two similar sites and you need to rebuild one of them, you may forward the visitors to the other website in order to prevent losing potential clients, while you shall still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and work on it.

Setting up a new redirection is incredibly easy - you need to choose a domain/subdomain and then type the URL it has to be redirected to. You could also redirect a particular subfolder only. As an illustration, if you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you can forward just the latter. The tool has complex functions for more tech-savvy users also, including the option to pick the redirection type - 301 (permanent redirection) or 302 (temporary redirection), the redirection method - direct or match, and so on. If you no longer require a redirection, you are able to deactivate it with a click from the same exact section of the Control Panel.
