URL redirection allows you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you will still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, even though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for instance, 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 without a problem. If a site visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they will be redirected to the existing site. This way, you won't miss customers while creating the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

When you host your sites with our company and you have a shared hosting package, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes several easy steps via an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to choose the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the traffic must be sent to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection which you create can be deactivated from the very same section of the Control Panel, in case you do not require it anymore.
