URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you shall still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing site. This way, you'll not miss potential customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
We provide a handy and really simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL redirection, so in case you have a cloud hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if needed. Any domain name or subdomain hosted in the account could be redirected, so you will only have to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to choose if the main folder or a subfolder will be redirected and to type the new Internet address, no matter if it's pointing to a different site within your account or to a site on a remote web server. The redirection will be enabled almost immediately. If you're more competent, you will have a number of advanced options to choose from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All of the redirections will be listed in the same section, so in case you don't require a particular one anymore, you are able to cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server plans include a very useful tool that'll supply you with an automated and simple way to redirect any of your domains to another URL. While this is usually done by creating a special file inside the domain folder and by typing in specific content in it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to input the needed remote web address. Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding will be enabled in seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to select a range of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You'll be able to change these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an active redirection from the very same section in which you have created it in the first place.
