URL redirection allows you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without any problem. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be redirected to the existing site. That way, you shall not miss potential customers while building the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Hosting

When you host your websites with our company and you have a hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the traffic from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another Internet address. This process takes several easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You'll only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the site visitors must be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in the event you do not need it anymore.
