URL redirection allows you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you shall still be able to create completely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, although it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing website. This way, you'll not miss customers while creating the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Shared Website Hosting
If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a shared website hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative Internet address. This process takes a number of easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may set up a redirection even if you have no previous experience. You'll only need to select a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the site visitors must be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
