URL redirection allows you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to create fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The procedure takes a number of easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain name or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, if you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is typically done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be active within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can choose a range of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it to start with.
