URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a difficulty. When a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be forwarded to the existing site. That way, you'll not miss customers while building the localized Internet sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
When you host your websites with us and you have a shared website hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. The process takes just a few easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the website visitors have to be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to select the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create may be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, in case you don't need it anymore.
