URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing website. That way, you will not miss customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared web 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 an alternative web address. The task takes just a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply have to pick a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the traffic should be sent to. For more experienced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.
