URL redirection enables you to forward site visitors from one Internet site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only when the domain name is hosted, and therefore you shall still have the ability to set up completely functional subdomains and e-mail addresses or even to have content for the domain name in question, though it shall not accessible directly. If you already have a website, for example, but you would like to launch one or a variety of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you'll be able to work on them without any difficulty. In case a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they'll be sent to the existing site. This way, you shall not miss customers while creating the localized Internet sites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

When you host your websites with us and you have a cloud hosting plan, you will be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to a different Internet address. This process takes several easy steps through an easy-to-use interface, so you could set up a redirection even if you don't have any previous experience. You'll simply have to select a domain name 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 input the URL where the traffic must be sent 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 which you create can be deactivated from the exact same section of the Control Panel, if you don't need it anymore.
