URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to set up fully functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing site. That way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud website hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes just a few easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors should be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with a very useful tool which will provide you with an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domains to a different URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by typing in specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the needed remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be enabled in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you can select a number of more advanced options as well, particularly the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even redirect a particular folder rather than the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings anytime, and to delete an active redirection from the very same section where you have created it initially.
