URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing website. In this way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. This process takes a few simple steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors have to be forwarded to. For more proficient users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, in case you don't need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan that we provide will enable you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be carried out manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will just have to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be fully active. The more experienced users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with a couple of mouse clicks anytime. If you no longer need a redirection, you may delete it just as quickly.
