URL redirection enables you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and thus you will still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no problem. When a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be sent to the existing Internet site. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while creating the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with us and you have a shared hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. The task takes 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'll simply have to pick a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the site visitors should be forwarded 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 that you set up may be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in case you don't need it anymore.
