URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a hosting package deal, 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 another web address. The process takes several easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply need to select a domain name 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 input the URL where the site visitors should be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, if you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have 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 few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more advanced users can also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). These options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be changed with just a few mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as easily.
