What is Web Forwarding and why would you need it?

When your website moves, you may want to keep the residual traffic from your previous site address and transfer it to your new site. In that case, you’ll need to use what’s called “web forwarding.” Web forwarding can help you keep that search engine ranking you’ve fought so hard to build over the years.

But what exactly is web forwarding and why should you use it? We explain it all to you here!
