URL redirection enables you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. If a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. That 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 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 another web address. The process takes a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the site visitors should be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you don't need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server package deal we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this may be done manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we will offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active. The more knowledgeable users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and the URL a domain is redirected to, could be changed with just a few mouse clicks at any time. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
