URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. When a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
When you host your sites with us and you have a shared web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The process takes several basic steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create could be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan which we offer will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by including particular content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users can also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, could be modified with several clicks anytime. In case you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
