URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a website visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing site. That way, you won't miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
If you host your sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. This process takes a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you do not require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer will allow 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 including particular content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to type the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more expert users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with a couple of clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as fast.
