URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you will still be able to set up entirely 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 have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The task takes several basic steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors should be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up could be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in case you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every semi-dedicated server package we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including specific content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will just need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more advanced users may also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and the URL a domain is redirected to, could be changed with just a few mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
