URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain address is hosted, meaning that you'll still have the ability to create completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it won't be accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you would like to launch one or a number of localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them without a problem. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your sites with our company and you have a shared hosting plan, you'll 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 a different web address. The procedure takes a few simple steps through an user-friendly interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only need to pick a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the traffic have to be redirected to. For more experienced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding that you set up can be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, if you don't require it anymore.
