URL redirection enables you to redirect targeted traffic from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is practically unusable, a URL forwarding is possible provided that the domain is hosted, meaning that you'll still be able to create entirely functional subdomains and e mail addresses or even to have content for the domain address in question, though it will not be accessible directly. If you currently have a website, for example, but you need to launch one or several localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be forwarded to the existing Internet site. In this way, you won't miss potential customers 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 will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain address and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The task takes just a few easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you may create a redirection even when you don't have previous experience. You'll simply have to select a domain address or a subdomain through a drop-down list, to choose the folder in which the redirection will be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type the URL to which the traffic must be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to choose the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create could be deactivated from the exact same section of the CP, in case you don't require it anymore.
