URL redirection enables you to redirect traffic from one website to another. In contrast to forwarding a domain by parking it when the domain is virtually unusable, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain is hosted, meaning that you will still have the ability to set up entirely 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 currently have a website, for instance, but you want to launch one or several localized sites for different towns or countries, you will be able to work on them with no problem. If a visitor opens any of the new domain names, however, they will be sent to the existing Internet site. In this way, you shall not miss potential clients while building the localized websites.

URL Redirector in Cloud Hosting

If you host your Internet sites with our company and you have a cloud hosting plan, you shall be able to use our URL redirection tool to redirect the website visitors from any domain name and subdomain, or from a subfolder under any of them, to an alternative web address. The procedure takes just a few simple steps via an intuitive interface, so you may set up a redirection even if you don't have previous experience. You will simply need to pick a domain or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder where the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the site visitors must be redirected to. For more proficient users, there are also options to pick the redirection type (permanent or temporary) and the method (direct or match). Any forwarding which you create can be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, when you do not require it anymore.
