URL redirection enables you to redirect site visitors from one website to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible provided that the domain address is hosted, and therefore you'll still have the ability to create 100% functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you have a site, for instance, but you need to launch one or several localized websites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them with no difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they will be sent to the existing website. In this way, you won't miss customers while building the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
When you host your Internet sites with us and you have a cloud hosting package deal, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the site visitors 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 basic steps through an user-friendly interface, so you can create a redirection even in case you have no previous experience. You will simply have to choose a domain address or a subdomain using a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to enter the URL where the visitors have to 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 redirection that you create can be deactivated from the same exact section of the Control Panel, in case you don't require it anymore.
