URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you won't miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a shared hosting package, you will 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 a number of basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain via 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 in the URL to which the traffic have to be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, if you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server package we offer will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by adding specific content to it, we will provide you with a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle the rest, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more experienced users could also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, along with the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with just a few mouse clicks at any time. In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as quickly.
