URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, consequently you will still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for instance, but you need to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing website. In this way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Web Hosting
We offer a handy and very simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL redirection, so if you have a web hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if necessary. Any domain address or subdomain hosted inside the account can be forwarded, so you will only have to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder shall be redirected and to type the new web address, no matter whether it's pointing to a different site in your account or to a site on a remote web server. The forwarding will be enabled almost immediately. If you're more knowledgeable, you will have a number of advanced options to pick from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and so forth. All of the redirections will be listed in the same section, so when you do not need a particular one anymore, you can cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans come with a very convenient tool which will offer you an automated and simple way to forward any of your domain names to an alternative URL. While this is normally done by setting up a special file inside the domain folder and by inputting specific content inside it, our tool will enable you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the desired remote Internet address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be activated in seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a range of more advanced options also, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even redirect a particular folder instead of the root domain. You will be able to modify these settings anytime, and also to delete an active redirection from the same exact section where you have created it to start with.
