URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, consequently you'll still have the ability to set up 100% functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have an Internet site, for example, but you would like to launch one or many localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. If a visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be sent to the existing site. That way, you will not miss customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a shared web hosting package, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different web address. This process takes just a few simple steps via an user-friendly interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL to which the traffic should 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 may be deactivated from the very same section of the CP, when you do not need it anymore.
