URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you will not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared web hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a few easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply have to pick a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the traffic have to be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very handy tool that will supply you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is usually done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will enable you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a number of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings at any time, and even to delete an active redirection from the very same section where you have created it initially.
