URL redirection allows you to forward traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you will still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or many localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing Internet site. This way, you won't miss customers while building the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
We offer a convenient and very simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL forwarding, so in case you have a cloud hosting account with us, you can benefit from it, if required. Any domain name or subdomain hosted within the account may be forwarded, so you will only have to pick the one you need from a drop-down menu, to choose if the primary folder or a subfolder shall be forwarded and to enter the new web address, regardless if it is pointing to a different site inside your account or to a site on a remote web server. The forwarding will be enabled almost instantaneously. If you're more experienced, you'll have a number of advanced options to pick from too - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and so forth. All of the redirections will be listed in the same section, so whenever you do not need a specific one anymore, you may cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package we offer will allow you to redirect any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL with ease. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by adding certain content to it, we shall offer you a user-friendly tool in which you will only need to choose the domain/subdomain in question and to enter the remote address. Our system will take care of the rest, so a few seconds later the new redirection will be 100% active. The more experienced users could also make use of a number of other customizable options, like the option to select the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Each of these options, plus the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be changed with just a few mouse clicks at any time. In case you no longer need a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as fast.
