URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a difficulty. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes a number of simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You'll simply need to choose a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the traffic should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you set up can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, when you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very convenient tool which will provide you with an automated and easy way to forward any one of your domain addresses to another URL. While this is typically done by creating a special file in the domain folder and by entering specific content in it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the preferred remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you could select a range of more advanced options also, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You can also redirect a specific folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to modify these settings anytime, as well as to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it initially.
