URL redirection permits you to forward targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. When a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized websites.

When you host your websites with us and you have a cloud website hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The process takes just a few simple steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even when you have zero previous experience. You'll only have to select a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors have to be redirected 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 create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.

URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server packages come with a very convenient tool that will offer you an automated and uncomplicated way to forward any one of your domains to a different URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file within the domain folder and by inputting specific content inside it, our tool will allow you to choose a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to enter the needed remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the redirection shall be active in just seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you'll be able to pick a variety of more advanced options too, among them the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even forward a particular folder rather than the root domain. You will be able to modify these settings whenever you want, and even to delete an existing redirection from the same section where you have created it to begin with.
