URL redirection permits you to redirect visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. This process takes a number of easy steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the website visitors must be redirected 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 create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, if you do not require it anymore.

It will allow you to forward the website visitors within seconds, as all you will have to do is select a domain/subdomain and type in the Internet address of the other site. The redirection shall take effect right away. In case you are more advanced, you'll be able to edit different options, such as the type of the forwarding - temporary or permanent, and the method - direct or match. These options may be altered for any present redirection as well, so you'll not have to create a new one if you would like to change something. You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
