URL redirection permits you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they'll be redirected to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your sites with our company and you have a cloud hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The procedure takes a few easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You'll simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors have to 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 redirection you set up could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not need it anymore.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every semi-dedicated server plan which we provide will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to select the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will handle what's left, so a couple of seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more expert users can also make use of a few other customizable options, including the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, along with the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be altered with just a few mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer require a redirection, you could delete it just as easily.
