URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you will still be able to set up 100% functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you already have a site, 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 without a difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you will not miss potential customers while building the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a website hosting package deal, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes a number of easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You will only have to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the traffic should be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create could be deactivated from the same section of the CP, when you don't require it anymore.

Our system will take care of what's left, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be 100% active.
