URL redirection permits you to forward traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will 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 will not be accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you won't miss customers while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a cloud website hosting plan, 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 another web address. The task takes a few easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even when you have no previous experience. You will simply have to pick a domain 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 input the URL where the website visitors 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 forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any one of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is commonly done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be active within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you'll be able to choose a number of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can even forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an existing redirection from the same exact section where you have created it initially.
