URL redirection allows you to forward 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 forwarding is possible only when the domain address is hosted, meaning that you shall still be able to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, even though it will not be accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a site visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they'll be sent to the existing Internet site. This way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a shared web hosting package, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the traffic from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. The process takes just a few easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You'll only have to pick a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL to which the website visitors have to be sent to. For more proficient users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you set up can be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you don't need it anymore.
