URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still be able to create fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they'll be redirected to the existing website. In this way, you won't miss potential customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
Our company offers a handy and extremely simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL redirection, so in case you have a shared web hosting account with our company, you can benefit from it, if required. Any domain name or subdomain hosted inside the account could be forwarded, so you'll simply have to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to type in the new Internet address, regardless if it is pointing to a different Internet inside your account or to a site on a remote hosting server. The forwarding will be active almost immediately. If you are more skillful, you will have a range of advanced options to select from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All the redirections shall be listed in exactly the same section, so if you do not need a particular one anymore, you'll be able to cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very handy tool that will offer you an automated and easy way to redirect any of your domain names some other URL. While this is normally done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by typing specific content in it, our tool will allow you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type in the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection will be enabled within seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you could pick a range of more advanced options too, 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 will be able to change these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an existing redirection from the very same section in which you have created it to start with.
