There are a lot of ways to forward 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 is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means essentially is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could set up email addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you want to switch your domain name, you could redirect the visitors, but the e-mail messages with the old one will still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have 2 similar sites and you want to rebuild one of them, you can forward the website visitors to the other website in order to avoid losing potential clients, while you'll still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and improve it.

Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be active within seconds.
