URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL redirection is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and therefore you'll still be able to set up fully functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you currently have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or a number of localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. In this way, you won't miss potential clients while creating the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Shared Hosting

If 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 redirect the site visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes a few simple steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you don't have any previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain address 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 type in the URL where the site visitors should be sent 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 could be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, when you don't require it anymore.
