URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. That way, you'll not miss potential clients while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your sites with us and you have a shared hosting plan, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The procedure takes several basic steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You'll simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the site visitors have to be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you don't require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every semi-dedicated server plan we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be performed manually by creating a system file and by including specific content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will just need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be completely active. The more advanced users can also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, as well as the URL a domain is redirected to, could be altered with a few mouse clicks whenever you want. If you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
