URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, consequently you'll still be able to set up entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you want to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any problem. In case a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing website. In this way, you shall not miss potential customers while creating the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your websites with our company and you have a shared web hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The task takes a number of easy steps through an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to pick a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the visitors must be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you do not need it anymore.
