The Redirect URL option allows you to change the file that appears when a user enters a specific file's web address.

Example:
There are a number of old URLs for your site's home page that are no longer current, yet people still use them. You don't really want people going to those old URLs because either an outdated page will display or they'll get an error.

Set up redirection for these old URLs, so that when users enter them into their web browsers, the file at your current URL displays instead.

If set up to forward your domain to an existing website on the web, visitors will be transported instantly to the url of your choice.
