URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, consequently you shall still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. This way, you won't miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Website Hosting
We offer a handy and really simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL forwarding, so if you have a website hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if necessary. Any domain or subdomain hosted in the account could be redirected, so you'll only have to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to choose if the main folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to enter the new web address, regardless of whether it's pointing to a different Internet inside your account or to a website on a remote web server. The forwarding will be enabled almost immediately. If you're more competent, you will have a range of advanced options to pick from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All redirections will be listed in the exact same section, so if you don't require a specific one anymore, you are able to cancel it with a click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan which we offer will permit you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be performed manually by setting up a system file and by including specific content to it, we shall provide you with a user-friendly tool where you will only have to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a few other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be modified with just a few clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
