URL redirection enables you to redirect visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain is hosted, consequently you will still have the ability to set up entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have a website, for instance, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing site. In this way, you will not miss customers while developing the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Web Hosting

If you host your websites with our company and you have a web hosting package deal, 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 a different web address. This process takes a few easy steps via an intuitive interface, so you can set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain through 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 in the URL where the traffic have to be redirected to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, if you do not need it anymore.
