URL redirection allows you to forward visitors from one site to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain name by parking it when the domain is sort of unusable, a URL forwarding is possible only if the domain is hosted, and thus you shall still be able to create 100% 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 an Internet site, for example, but you'd like to launch one or a number of localized Internet sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them without a problem. If a website visitor opens any of the new domains, however, they shall be redirected to the existing website. This way, you won't miss customers while developing the localized websites.
URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting
We offer a convenient and extremely simple-to-use tool for setting up a URL forwarding, so in case that you have a cloud hosting account with us, you can take advantage of it, if necessary. Any domain address or subdomain hosted within the account could be forwarded, so you will only need to choose the one you need from a drop-down menu, to pick if the main folder or a subfolder shall be redirected and to enter the new Internet address, regardless of whether it is pointing to a different website within your account or to a website on a remote web server. The forwarding will be activated almost instantly. In case you are more knowledgeable, you'll have a number of advanced options to choose from also - the redirection method (match or direct), the type (301 Permanent or 302 Temporary) etc. All redirections shall be listed in exactly the same section, so when you don't require a particular one anymore, you may cancel it with a mouse click.
URL Redirector in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server plan which we offer will allow you to forward any host (domain or subdomain) to a third-party URL without any difficulty. While this can be done manually by creating a system file and by including certain content to it, we'll give you a user-friendly tool where you will just need to pick the domain/subdomain in question and to type in the remote address. Our system will take care of everything else, so a few seconds later the new redirection shall be fully active. The more knowledgeable users may also make use of a couple of other customizable options, like the option to choose the redirection type (direct, match) and method (301 permanent, 302 temporary). Any of these options, as well as the URL a domain is forwarded to, can be changed with just a few clicks anytime. If you no longer require a redirection, you'll be able to delete it just as quickly.
