URL redirection permits you to forward 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 forwarding is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll 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 redirected to the existing site. That way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a shared web hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a number of simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll only need to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors should be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very convenient tool that'll offer you an automated and simple way to forward any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is commonly done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content in it, our tool will permit you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the desired remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a range of more advanced options also, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even redirect a specific folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings anytime, and even to delete an existing redirection from the very same section where you have created it to begin with.
