URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, meaning that you shall 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, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you would 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 website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The process takes a number of simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server package deal we provide will enable you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by adding certain content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more expert users could also make use of a few other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, plus the URL a domain is redirected to, may be changed with several clicks anytime. If you no longer require a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
