URL redirection permits you to redirect site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. This way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

If you host your websites with us and you have a web hosting plan, you shall 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 a different Internet address. This process takes just a few easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll simply need to select a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the site visitors have to be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, in case you do not require it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server solutions include a very handy tool that'll provide you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content within it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the preferred remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the redirection will be activated in seconds. If you're more tech-savvy, you can select a number of more advanced options also, most notably the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may also redirect a specific folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings at any time, and to delete an active redirection from the exact same section where you have created it in the first place.
