URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one website 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, and thus you will still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be redirected to the existing website. This way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
We provide a convenient and incredibly simple-to-use tool for creating a URL forwarding, so in case that you have a shared website hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain name or subdomain hosted inside the account could be redirected, so you'll just need to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the main folder or a subfolder shall be redirected and to type the new Internet address, no matter if it is pointing to a different Internet within your account or to a site on a remote hosting server. The redirection will be active almost instantly. If you're more competent, you will have a number of advanced options to choose from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All of the redirections will be listed in the same section, so when you don't require a specific one anymore, you'll be able to cancel it with a click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very handy tool that'll provide you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by entering specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to pick a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the desired remote Internet address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be active in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a range of more advanced options too, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also forward a particular folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings anytime, and even to delete an active redirection from the very same section in which you have created it from the start.
