There are many ways to forward traffic from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is oftentimes preferred. In contrast to parking a domain, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content in case you have a direct link to it and you can create email addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has many practical uses - if you decide to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are communicating with customers or partners. If you have two similar websites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you may forward the website visitors to the other website to avoid losing potential clients, while you will still be able to access the admin area for the first site and work on it.

The redirection shall be enabled almost instantaneously. If you are more competent, you'll have a variety of advanced options to pick from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All of the redirections shall be listed in the same section, so whenever you do not need a certain one anymore, you can cancel it with a mouse click.

Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can select a number of more advanced options as well, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
