URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and therefore you will still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you need to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be redirected to the existing site. That way, you'll not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
If you host your websites with us and you have a website hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The procedure takes just a few easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll only have to choose a domain name or a subdomain using 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 enter the URL to which the website visitors have to be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every semi-dedicated server package that we provide will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL effortlessly. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more knowledgeable 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). All of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, can be altered with several mouse clicks at any time. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as easily.
