URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you want to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
We provide a convenient and very simple-to-use tool for creating a URL redirection, so in case you have a shared website hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain name or subdomain hosted inside the account may be redirected, so you'll only need to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder will be redirected and to enter the new Internet address, regardless of whether it's pointing to a different Internet in your account or to an Internet site on a remote hosting server. The forwarding shall be activated almost instantaneously. In case you are more knowledgeable, you'll have a range of advanced options to choose from as well - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All redirections will be listed in exactly the same section, so in case you don't require a certain one anymore, you are able to cancel it with a click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan we provide will permit you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without difficulty. While this can be done manually by setting up a system file and by including specific content to it, we'll offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to input the remote address. Our system will handle everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more experienced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, such as the option to pick the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). All of these options, and even the URL a domain is forwarded to, may be altered with several mouse clicks whenever you want. When you no longer need a redirection, you can delete it just as easily.
