There are two options for web redirect, URL forwarding and port forwarding.

URL forwarding allows you to redirect visitors to your website to another URL of your choice, while port forwarding(also called HTTP redirection, port 80 redirection) works for users whose ISP blocks port 80, which allows you to host your website on a port other than port 80 while maintaining the convenience of accessing your website with a regular URL without specifying the port number.
