URL redirection allows you to forward targeted traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain name is hosted, and thus you'll still have the ability to create fully functional subdomains and email addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, although it won't be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for example, but you want to launch one or many localized websites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no difficulty. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing site. That way, you'll not miss potential clients while building the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you'll be able to use our URL redirection tool to forward the site visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to another web address. The process takes a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even in case you have zero previous experience. You will only need to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to select the folder where the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL where the website visitors must be forwarded to. For more knowledgeable users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you do not require it anymore.

Our system shall do the rest and the forwarding shall be active within seconds. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may select a range of more advanced options as well, including the redirection method (direct, match) and the redirection type (temporary, permanent).
