URL redirection allows you to redirect site visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you would like to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing website. This way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a web hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes a few simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only need to pick a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the website visitors must be sent to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, in the event you do not require it anymore.
