URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing site. In this way, you won't miss potential clients while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared web hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes a few basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the traffic should be sent 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 that you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server plans feature a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to a different URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content inside it, our tool will permit you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a number of more advanced options as well, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a specific folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to edit these settings anytime, and also to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it to start with.
