URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one site to another. In contrast to redirecting a domain address by parking it when the domain is unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain in question, although it shall not accessible directly. If you have an Internet site, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without a problem. In case a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing website. That way, you shall not miss potential clients while developing the localized sites.
URL Redirector in Shared Web Hosting
When you host your sites with us and you have a shared web hosting package deal, 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 an alternative Internet address. This process takes a few basic steps via an intuitive interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to pick a domain or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection shall be created (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to input the URL where the traffic should be redirected to. For more advanced users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any redirection that you set up can be deactivated from the same section of the CP, if you do not require it anymore.
