URL redirection allows you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you need to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. In case a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. That way, you will not miss potential customers while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a number of easy steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors must be forwarded to. For more proficient 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 same exact section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.
