URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you will still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you won't miss customers while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. The procedure takes just a few simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL where the visitors must be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not require it anymore.
