URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any difficulty. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. In this way, you won't miss customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud web hosting package deal, you shall 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 an alternative Internet address. The task takes a few easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the traffic should be forwarded 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 that you create could be deactivated from the same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions feature a very handy tool which will supply you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domain addresses to an alternative URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by entering specific content within it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the preferred remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be activated in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could choose a variety of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even forward a certain folder rather than the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings anytime, and to delete an active redirection from the same section in which you have created it to start with.
