URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address 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 name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your sites with our company and you have a shared website hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a few basic steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to pick a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the visitors should be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in the event you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server plan we offer will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding specific content to it, we'll provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more advanced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be altered with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as fast.
