URL redirection allows you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, and thus you'll still be able to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a site, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. This way, you'll not miss potential clients while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Hosting
We provide a convenient and incredibly simple-to-use tool for creating a URL forwarding, so in case you have a shared hosting account with us, you can take full advantage of it, if needed. Any domain name or subdomain hosted inside the account could be redirected, so you'll only have to select the one you need from a drop-down menu, to decide if the primary folder or a subfolder will be forwarded and to type in the new web address, regardless of whether it's pointing to a different website inside your account or to a website on a remote server. The forwarding shall be activated almost immediately. If you are more knowledgeable, you will have a range of advanced options to choose from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) and many others. All the redirections will be listed in exactly the same section, so if you do not need a particular one anymore, you may cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server solutions come with a very useful tool that'll provide you with an automated and uncomplicated way to redirect any of your domains to an alternative URL. While this is in most cases done by setting up a special file in the domain folder and by typing specific content within it, our tool will permit you to select a domain/subdomain from a drop-down list and to type the desired remote web address. Our system will do the rest and the forwarding shall be active within seconds. If you are more tech-savvy, you could pick a number of more advanced options as well, such as the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent). You may even forward a certain folder instead of the root domain. You shall be able to modify these settings anytime, and also to delete an active redirection from the exact same section where you have created it from the start.
