URL redirection allows you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding 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 shall still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you shall be able to work on them with no problem. If a website visitor opens any one of the new domain names, however, they shall be redirected to the existing site. That way, you will not miss customers while creating the localized sites.

URL Redirector in Website Hosting

When you host your sites with our company and you have a website hosting package deal, you'll 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 a different web address. This process takes just a few simple steps through an intuitive interface, so you could create a redirection even if you have zero previous experience. You will simply need to choose a domain address or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection will be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the visitors should be forwarded to. For more advanced users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you create may be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you do not need it anymore.

You can remove a redirection by clicking on the Delete button associated with it.
