URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to set up completely 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 currently have a site, for example, but you need to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing site. This way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. This process takes a number of basic steps through an intuitive interface, so you could set up a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain name or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the website visitors have to be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you set up may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package deal which we offer will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this may be done manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we shall supply you with a user-friendly tool in which you will simply have to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be completely active. The more expert users could also make use of a couple of other customizable options, such as the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, could be changed with just a few clicks whenever you want. In case you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
