There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently preferred. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection can be done only if the domain 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 could set up e-mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This type of feature has lots of practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could forward the traffic, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in the event that you are making contact with clients or partners. If you have two very similar websites and you would like to rebuild one of them, you can forward the traffic to the other Internet site in order to avoid losing potential customers, while you'll still be able to access the administrator area for the first site and develop it.

Creating a new redirection is quite simple - you must choose a domain/subdomain and then enter the URL it needs to be redirected to. You can also forward a certain subfolder only. As an example, when you have your-domain.com and your-domain.com/es, you may forward just the latter.
