URL redirection permits you to forward visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to create fully 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 have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. When a site visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be redirected to the existing website. In this way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a shared hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes several basic steps via an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the traffic must be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in the event you don't need it anymore.
